I spent most of the day (except during the Superbowl, because I’m a fanatic) at the studio, wiring, signing and adding finishing touches to my paintings for the Temptation6 show which we hang tomorrow. Very excited about that, I might add.

be tempted…

For $20 you’ll get a chance to own all six paintings valued at over $1500. And for $100 you’ll get six tickets; that’s one free ticket. Pretty tempting, huh?

I have been so busy painting, that I have not taken the time to do things that either I need to do…like my son’s Middle School application *breathes into paper bag*, or go to the gym…let alone, some other things that make me happy…like taking her out. Today… we got reacquainted. It felt great.

Help Haiti

I am the daughter of a remarkable woman who, since I can remember has given so much of herself to help others unconditionally. The sick, the less fortunate, anybody she has ever encountered in need. She has taught me and my brothers to do the same, to give back no matter the circumstances; someone is always in need and worse off than we are. There is countless suffering in the world, so many children without parents, so many families without [...]

passion and commitment to the power of six

I came into that initial meeting, expecting to have a few laughs, a few brownies, and exchange a few ideas. What I came out with was a incredible feeling of belonging, of anticipation and and urge to take charge…as well as some brownies and yes, some laughs. It was early last fall  when I got together with 5 other artists to discuss our goals, our passion and our intentions to make our work a priority. That day, art6 was born. [...]

In case you are wondering, I’m still here. Looking at the 5 people that will go ahead of me. This is the time where I think: “I am in the wrong business, I could have been a professional asshole.”

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that a lot of artists have a difficult time talking about their work in a public setting. I am usually very outspoken and really not the one hiding in the corner of a room full of people, but when it comes to talking about my work , the process, or my inspiration, I tend to be a bit shy…unless of course I have a glass of wine in hand. Somehow that is [...]

Super Mommy? maybe tomorrow.

I smiled because it does seem like I do it all, and actually, I do. How do I do it? Well never at the same time for one. I decided to give this question a nice hard look and analyze it all.

I am so unorganized I can’t find my own head. I have been working a lot, getting ready for my Temptation6 show. The studio is a disaster. There are things everywhere. Crumbled papers on the floor, tape, a box of toothpicks (for the paintings, not to pick my teeth), sketchbooks, half drunken coffee cups,  paints, pencils, pastels, HELP! The sweet janitor-man that cleans the place said: “Ohhh.. a bit messy. I didn’t want to vacuum and because I wasn’t sure [...]
