I Give You...

Finally~ I can show you my new painting that will be part of the In The Nursery show at Corey Helford Gallery this coming Saturday (Jan. 29th).

I worked long and hard on this piece, I wanted to get it JUST RIGHT and I'm thrilled with how it came out! The inspiration behind it was honestly lovely Christmas lights and white snowy decor during the time I began (early November) hoping for a white, wintery, January feel.

It was on my easel for sooo long, now here without it, my place seems a little empty. She's framed and waiting to be hung in the gallery amongst some of her favorite artists and friends, and hopefully some of you can join me for the opening night festivities!!

If you are able, please come out and celebrate with me, the other 25 artists in the show, the gallery and 1,000 of our closest friends!!!

Here are two images I snatched from the internet for inspiration for my painting, next week I'll be able to show you the piece in it's entirety ~ can't wait!!

I Don't Mind You Comin Here, And Wastin All My Time

See This and try NOT to love Scarlett.

As we've turned the corner into a new year and new decade, I find myself searching for new inspiration. New New New New. I was all set to do a wrap up of 2010 (like I did for 2009 here), but can't stop myself from looking forward - not backward. Even tho last year was an unbelievable year for me (museum show in Bristol, big trip to England, huge solo show @ CHG, lots and lots of play time with artists I LOVE, another rad Baby Tattooville and so on and so on...), right now I wanna throw myself into a fresh new beginning ~ and when I say that, I'm mostly talking about art ~ and in turn that means my life.

I do wanna thank each and every one of you that comes and visits me here. I hope you all made it into the new year safe and happy and ready to get rowdy. Let's do it.

I can't stop watching this...(how do you spell watching?)
