Hello everybody!

It has been a long time since I’ve updated this, and reading back over my youthful ramblings proved pretty entertaining.

I have graduated, I now live in Chicago (as of 9 days ago) and I have a studio space in my apartment. I’m looking at jobs to support my art-making and comedy-class-taking.

I will be having a show in January at the Flat Irons Art Building in Wicker Park. More details as that gets closer.

This is my latest piece, inspired by Botticelli. But isn’t everything? Looking to do some more joyful paintings to match my current state of mind.

NEW BEGINNINGS

So, I’m doing some seriously abstract but fleshy things to get back into some interesting paint usage, becasue everything is feeling/looking too contrived lately.

And, of course, I’m dancing all over it.

Bak 2 Skool

I have (mostly) moved into my apartment in Northampton! I am living with three of the more wonderful humans in my life. We’ve been sitting and thinking and drinking and singing.

I am about to embark on a project for the semester: 12 paintings, all 4’x8′. One painting a week. When they are placed in a 3×4 grid, they will form a full figure. However, they can be displayed on their own and be individual pieces in their own right.

More on the project and updates to come! Email ruby.m.western@gmail.com with any questions or suggestions!
