Here’s today’s repost. Take Five is the title I gave this piece when I planned it out. My desire is always to paint an energetic, abstract and textured work that will still be representational and allegorical... And that I will finish it or - it will be finished when it tell me its finished. My process is both long and deliberately challenging, I’m not exactly playing by the rules either when it comes to color and application or technique- rather than making careful and conscious decisions about color, value and mark making, I am making careful and conscious decisions not to do that- not to do what I did for years, all that I had learned, all that I knew. Mixing colors that are ball park, that might or might not work or are sometimes opposite of what I “should do” and that may force me to do something else as a consequence of being less careful, less deliberate and less predictable. To that end I also abandoned my decades long limited palette of two of each primary plus white in favor of a quite expanded one. I paint with knives mostly, and the cheapest bristle brushes I can get and deliberately use the wrong size knife or brush for a given job - it forces me to work harder and struggle. I guess thats what I mean about deliberately challenging. But something else is happening- I am starting more paintings than I am finishing- finishing in the way I used to consider a painting “finished” This approach also forces time on my process - and that gives time to think, to listen to the painting and develop a relationship with it. I sometimes try to tell it where I want it to go and often, it takes me to where it wants to be. This piece seems to want me to stop here- we’re still talking it over. There’s something captivating, not just enigmatic, about the incomplete, fragmented figures that occupy the space, in a way that speaks to both the life we normally live in and the one we are living today. I think perhaps unfinished may be the new finished in my paintings. ... #landscapepainting #chicagopainter #chicagoartist #chicagoland #chicagopainters #chicagoart #cityscapepainting #cityscapepaintings #contemporaryart #dailypainter #contemporarypainting

Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year.

Being stuck at home (other than going to work or a quick Whole Foods/Target run) has truly been a bummer. This time last year, I was enjoying #Chicagoland. 🏙 It’s crazy how things are right now, but hang tight. Stay positive and spread kindness. How are you coping with #quarantinelife ? Where’s the first place you would go once this is over?

Well, looks like we're in for another month at home. It's frustrating, but ultimately necessary. @ssssssandra and I have had alot of time to talk shop and hone our vision. Part of that was better client education. Hands on when in the shop, and video for reference. Here's a short on how to get a smooth look with volume. When I ask people how they style or why they don't want to do more it's usually about a lack of time. This took me exactly 4 mins to execute. 4 mins of effort will give infinitely better results than 0. Give it a shot. We'll throw it on our YouTube later too. It's likely you'll have plenty of time indoors. Best time to work on that technique. Shoot us a message if you have any questions about tools or methodology. . . . This look was achieved with @fellowbarber, which we carry at the shop. Come grab some in May . . . #wrathandcochicago #midwestmade #wrathandcobarbers #chicagogram #chicagobarber #chicago #chicagoland #barber #barbershop #barberlife #andis #oster #wahl #menshair #mensfashion #mensstyle #mensgrooming #haircut #lincolnpark #lincolnparkchicago #chicagobarbershop #chicagofoodie #nearnorthside #northandclybourn #bestbarbers #lincolnparkbarbershop #lincolnparkbarber #westloop #chicagoblogger #builtnotbought

Today didn’t go exactly as planned. We originally were going to celebrate my birthday (a week late) by going on a date for poke bowls and see the new Mulan movie. Instead, Dennis took the day off. We had an impromptu dance party (including our First Dance song). We reminisced and watched videos from our wedding (why on earth did we dance so far apart?? 🙈😂) We went for a chilly walk. We still ate poke bowls. Best of all, my 3.5 year old stated that he wants Jesus to be his Savior and wants to go to heaven to be with Him. 😍❤️😭 While quarantine is not ideal, I would not give up today for anything ❤️❤️

I’ve never done the #instagramintro and it feels pretty strange, but here we go!!! I’m Tracy, a Colorado Native, minus the 1 year I lived in Chicago & then promptly brought my a** back home! July 2020 is year two of being a wife and our son Bronson #babybk will be 17 months in April. If you also stink at follow through and consistency but fight the good fight to be better, then we should ‘ #mosdef ‘ be friends. Additionally, I can’t really make sense of what this new normal is. I am an #essentialemployee and honestly not even sure what my outlook is on everything. My family and I will never live in fear but we are also very aware that we must live smart and set a good example. No matter what the situation is... as my husband @brandon.beard.752 would say, “you can bet your boots,” I’m always gonna be me... . . . . #inthesecurls #everydayme #instaintro #wordsofintention #coloradonative #chicagoland #athomephotoshoot #wifelife #boymom #mixedgirlmagic #mixedpeoplebeauty #coronavairus #essentialemployee #womenintrucking #covid19 #stocktheshelves #neverliveinfear
