Goodsh*t: Domestic Abuse...



The first step is finally admitting you have a problem.

I am in complete and utter denial of any fits of domesticity that I might have running through my brain. Sure, I keep a tidy ship and I cook and all that, but I am finally going to embrace this part of myself and hopefully it will not involve baking or children, but more of a focus on the home as I plan on being here just a while longer.

I am starting out small i.e. I hate painting walls. So I have decided to re-shui my wall art, you know, taking down all those dated prints that I got at the National Gallery, Van Gogh Museum, Tate Modern etc. I came up with this "diptych" idea after uncovering the first painting "Off With Her Head!!!" that was lying in the corner of my living room collecting dust. (I made a series of these for an Alice in Wonderland party I hosted, wooo thats was a hoot!) Then I came up with the poodle, for to me, it's the undying symbol of domesticity and while I am embracing domesticity in a way, I felt she was necessary. Her head is supposed to be severed, but the drawing was too cute and I just couldn't complete the painting without "Turbo's" paws. Anyway, I would love to explain more, but the rest stays in my head...

PS That pillow I picked up in the hood, the print is like a little curiosity cabinet with extra added hidden human skulls! Domestic Goth!

PSS In the wise words of one Jen L. Knox: "The poodle is not a housewife!" Therefore, the poodle is my spirit animal.
