Middle of Summer, Reset, Keep painting, Holding on time.

Summer came too quick, now we are right in the middle. Humans, are we ever satisfied with our current state of being. In the winter we day dream of summer days.. Now we are here wondering about the fall. Beach town life has been really amazing. Pros of living here in Virginia Beach. Summer biking is definitely divine. You feel like you are inhaling happy drugs once you hit the ocean front air. So with that we all need to hit a reset button. Wheel it in. There is work to be done and the child is in summer camp this week! I continue painting cicadas this summer. As it buzzes and sing away at night in this area. I'm also working with norfolk growler and just free-styling painting on growlers for gifts/charity. It was really fun to work on hand made ceramics. Other great news is I will be working on a mural for Esoteric restaurant. They are so wonderful from food, drinks and community. Sourcing from their own garden and local farmers only. So much to be grateful about, and so much to celebrate.

 

NYC Recap: I finished doing a pop up in Brooklyn at the living gallery. It was so nice to be back home, meeting new creative peeps, and reuniting with old. Here are some pics from the event.

No Sleep Till Brooklyn

Well summer vacation for my daughter has started and that means mommy can get a little more sleep in the mornings. It also means weekends will be filled with working all summer without much child care, though I got my focus on and completed three small commissions and it will be sent out right on time as planned today.

On other news is who can sleep when I'll be in NYC this weekend! I'm so excited to be part of this pop up that my friend Toofly has created. If you will be in Brooklyn over this weekend please come say hi! Great talent selling amazing things, hand made from the heart. There will be a sangria bar, rooftop BBQ, henna painting. I miss home a lot all the time. Mostly it's also everyone that I have crossed paths while growing up there. The history that is still there, aging beautiful brownstones to skyscrapers high in the sky. We are one. Peace and love.

Box Art Series

FOR THE LONGEST TIME I have wanted to dive into making box art after seeing a show of Joseph Cornell's Box art work in New York during college days. His biography is very interesting. His house is actually not too far from where I grew up in Flushing Queens during my teenage years. So this was super fun to do!! I reproduced the watercolor owl I did and played with some mixmedia in the back ground. Then placed in shadow box.. I've listed these on my etsy shop! Check it out!
