The Purest of Golds - an update
The past week has been constant work day in and day out with barely any sleep or rest but for the first time I’m not complaining! I’m happy building my career and figuring things out bit by bit. It slipped my mind that today marks a day I wish never happened, until dad reminded me. 2 years ago today, you passed away, leaving us far too soon. Although I’ve been thinking about you a lot, I’m sorry I haven’t spoken to you recently. A lot has happened over the past year. I started a project dedicated to you and made a bunch of new work, which I’m really happy about! I traveled a load of times over the past year and am planning to do the same thing this year, exploring always makes me feel closer to you so I’ll never stop. Dad’s getting remarried and my baby brother is due next month, which is super weird but also super exciting. I hope you’re not upset about that, dad seems really happy and although it’s not the same, it’s nice to see him in a good mood.
I wish you were here to see everything that’s happened, the ups and the downs. It pains me to think that it’s only been 2 years without you and there’ll be another 30/40 years ahead of me without you still. But I know you’ll be here beside me all the way through nonetheless. You’ll always be apart of me, forever 💕
Until our next chat,
Your ever loving son,
Big thank you to these two guys for being such great sports and getting all down and dirty in gold paint. And huge thanks to Shammie for staying back and helping me out even thought she was dead tired!!!!!
I wanted to create an image that represented the way I want to remember my mother: beautiful, majestic and a woman who had a golden aura. I’ll be uploading the outtakes/other images sometime next week so stay tuned for those 💕
