You may have seen these photos before, posted when The EGE and I visited Becki's new studio in 2007. I love them--I'd love to post every one he took so you could have the experience of visiting this amazing place and seeing more of Becki's work. Those are some of her paintings on the wall behind her head:
Did I mention cool? I love the way she dresses (Keens, lots of linen), I love her art,
her vast and amazing collection of Stuff. Oh, my.
This totally creeped me out, so you know I adore it.
One of the color drawers. Black.
Another color drawer: blue.
Do you know what this is?
This conversation did, indeed, feed my soul. Hearing her talk about things nobody else ever talks about was like a balm for me. If you live in a place like Midland/Odessa, and you love your house and, like me, couldn't ever afford one like it anywhere else in the country, what are you going to do? If you're Becki, you find a way to make an oasis for yourself, a place that nourishes your creative spirit and provides you with the atmosphere and energy you need to make what you make. I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did. I keep listening to it, nodding, going, "Ahhhhh."
Here's her website where you can see more of her work.
Thanks, Becki! XO
