As 2018 comes to a close, we all put things into perspective. It's been a hell of a year, big highs and lows. But I'm most happy about starting this online shop, and putting out my own work for the first time in years, and grateful for the support I've gotten so far. I have a lot of work to do in 2019 but am very excited about it. Life is short, and life is scary. I did this piece yesterday, Time, and it originally had a different image which I've since deleted. Long story. Overall I see this piece is being perceived as a derogative, but the message is more *kick in the ass*. And I firmly believe that we should tend to our homes, our bodies, and the marks we make - but understand that time is of the essence and that ultimately, we own nothing. Be grateful for what you've got. Use it well. Put it all into the universe. Get it back. Have a wonderful 2019. Jen Black.
