My sister: Oh he's fantastic. Plays rugby?
Me: Naw, he's into beat poetry. He knits.
My sister: Right. Of course. He's got BO though. For sure.
Me: Oh for sure. He's been using natural products and they just aren't cutting it.
My sister: Exactly.
Like I mentioned the other day, I'm having a first-ever local studio sale in a few weeks, and in addition to new work I'm really excited about, I've got loads of portraits that will be available for a steal because of various reasons: they are not on high quality paper, didn't make the cut, got slightly bent or smudged etc. I have some in all different sizes, and for all different pricing. Basically even if you're a miserly cheapskate or starving student you'll be able to come home with something beautiful to stare at while you eat your Ramen noodle. More details forthcoming, sign-up for my newsletter to get the full scoop (or DM me your email and I'll do it!) #miriamtribeart
I'm usually drawn to the wonkiest more abstract of my portraits cause I love their wild-card feel. This cray lady from my #100continuouslinefaces series was one of my favorites. 💥Trying to pull together my studio in the next couple of days so I can get busy on work for a studio sale I'm having with @hav_house in a few weeks. More details of my studio updates on my stories, and more details about the sale to come--get excited cause it's going to be REALLY FUN. 💥 #miriamtribeart
I finished my last push for the Draw Inc show (super proud of that body of work), and immediately turned my full attention to getting my kids started in school and transitioning out of summer. I'm in this weird yet peaceful headspace of possibility for my work with real open hours to do it. I've been squeezing my art in between diapers and dinner for so long that the sudden stretches of actual free time is exciting yes but more than a little intimidating for me. Like, ahh! Here's your chance to stop pretending to be an artist and actually go for it! Absurd. Maybe I just needed to say that to answer that of course I HAVE been doing it, and the only thing to do is keep going. Don't think about what it should be or could be just and just enjoy what it is today. #miriamtalksitthrough#miriamtribeart
Sent my kiddos off to school today, shlept around, twiddled my thumbs then got back to work and had a brilliant idea I'm particularly psyched outta my mind about. MY SHOW WITH @DRAWINC1 IS UP TIL SEPT. 18! STOP BY IF YOU'RE IN TOWN! #miriamtribeart
THIS SERIOUS FELLOW IS KILLING ME SOFTLY. I've been working on getting all my work matted and framed for my show at @drawinc1 this Friday, and man oh man is it thrilling to see them all sleek and sexy. More on my stories! PS WHAT'S HIS NAME?? #miriamtribeart
