Jay DeFeo - The Rose (1958-69)
“The story of Jay DeFeo and The Rose is both a cautionary tale of obsession and an inspiring tale of determination and belief. She began working on The Rose in 1958. She was 29 years old and for the next eight years, she did little else but sit on a stool in her studio, smoking cigarettes, drinking brandy while she painted and scraped away at her vision.
First titled The Deathrose, then The White Rose and finally just The Rose, DeFeo only stopped working on the painting when an increase in rent forced her from her studio. By then it was 1966, her marriage was ending, she was in fragile physical and mental health, and The Rose had become too large to fit out the door.
At nearly 12 feet high and in places eight inches thick, The Rose was constructed from layer upon layer of built up and scraped away black and white paint. DeFeo added mica chips to the paint and so The Rose has its own interior light.”
Well today is turning out to be a shit day.

Some people don’t think. If they do, then, well, their thinking just seems broken. They seem to not have an understanding of their consequences. Or they do not care. Or worse, they know and are willing to go through with it for their own selfish reasons. And when it affects you, and those you love, and your community, and your state… Well, it is very upsetting. Please pause to think about what you’re thinking about…
Photographer Gillian Laub’s portraits of punk rocker Laura Jane Grace, her wife Heather, and their daughter Evelyn. These photos and the accompanying Cosmo article marked one year since Grace began her MtF transition after years of performing under the name Tom Gabel.
This family is so cute I could die. Literally the only thing that could make these three cooler would be if they balanced their rock ‘n roll lifestyle with doing some vampire hunting on the side. Moms in black, daughter in a pink tutu.
I want to keep them all. Seriously.
