This canvas floated around for a few years or so, I never knew what to do with it. It traveled with me from the East Coast to the Midwest, an empty vessel.
Five new places and 2 states later this is what came out of it, nothing detailed just bliss simplicity; all while listening to Fuzzy Green Stoplights...on loop.
P.S. Painting while listening to that was almost an out-of-body experience.

Carrie is a transient, every time she gets heartbroken she packs her bags and runs away, it never fails!
The excitement of a new place almost always makes it easier to forget. Once she finally settles in memories start to creep in becoming heartbroken all over again. Then up she goes again! Carrie packed her bags and moved away!
On December 23rd Carrie traveled to the West Coast, she hitchhiked her way to CA...well she didn't really hitchhiked she flew, but I figured hitchhiking sounded more adventurous.....

Tara has a heart of gold.....always protected and guarded as she keeps it, her heart is her only downfall. She is willing to do what it takes to protect her love, even if it means that she can lose her own. She always want's see her Tegan smile, and this mostly happens at her expense. Tara is becoming exhausted but a quitter she is not, though the cracks have started to show, broken she will never be.

Louise always wondered if she would be missed in the minds of those who knew her, after she was gone. She always knew a little something was missing, yet still she pushed for a little something more. Louise never I imagined that on that morning she would be gone. I still wonder where she was going in such a rush. I stood there and waited for help while I watched her body letting go of her soul.

She managed to close her eyes, yet she couldn't stop seeing her. She was able to not fall sleep, yet she kept dreaming, she quiet down the voices but was still able to hear her, she stopped being but never stopped being there.
She was touched, she was hypnotized, she no longer cared, her will had be taken away, she was put under a spell.
She calmed her mind down, but wasn't able to calm her spirit, she was able to be sincere without having to stop lying, she stayed near by while still running away, she was able to change her life but she couldn't change herself.
I spent Christmas break in CA , and as much I didn't want to admit, the warm weather was a nice change, if 50 can be considered warm of course. I painted this tile in particular over six months ago but for some reason, this time I took my time before letting it go.
I left this Tegan somewhere in La Jolla, breathing in the dry cool air, overlooking a gorgeous sunset while listening to waves crashing; taking in all the beauty of the West Coast.

Erin's treasured Tegan is miles from where she is at, cross country to be exact. She learned of this treasure weeks back, ever since then that is all she can think about. Erin may seem lucky to have found her treasure yet still just like the fine print at the bottom of a contract, Erin's new finding comes at a high price.....the thousands of miles of distance that keeps them apart.
