11x17 ink and watercolor on paper- 10/2014 - This is a rendering of a 4 tailed Japanese ghost dressed as an African warrior goddess of sudden change and hurricanes named Oya. I had started this piece as a goodbye, and it ended up becoming me having to say farewell to a web of expectations and connotations I had allowed to work its way into so much of my me, as well. I thought I was saying this to someone, and it ended up being a culmination of so many instances of me trying to say this to myself. I'm fortunate to have learned so much from how I render the human condition, but I don't need to do another from this part of my stomach again for a while.
