I said to a partner once, people keep telling me I look like a model. Do I? She responded, I think they are just being nice.... When I tell this story, people always get upset saying something like I can t believe she would say that.. or some form of that s fucked up. It took their disgust with her response for me to realize it wasn t ok. a dream I admitted at 13, and gave up on after the first rejection Even after my friend s profound disgust, I still believed my exes words. I believed them before I asked the question. Photoshoot after photoshoot... I still struggle with calling myself a model I have in my head the very arbitrary requirements, and still Ericka, are you a model? And no leaves my lips without consideration.. Lately, however every time I leave a photoshoot, 13 year old Ericka wearing glossy red lipstick, a kitten heel, and a baby doll dress practicing her walk with stacks of books on her head smiles. #workinprogress

It s not often that I paint pictures of things, I realized years ago that I felt a deeper satisfaction and was able to communicate better through abstraction. However today I am consumed with memories of my grandmother and my grandmother loved hummingbirds. All living things really, but an extra fondness for hummingbirds. She had a feeder outside of her window and she would talk to them while they swarmed about. Hello dears Be nice there s enough for everybody Now aren t you handsome. Today I need to paint a hummingbird.
