Holy Guacamole!

I guess that I am jumping on the avocado bandwagon. This is a 6×6 acrylic painting that would look perfect in the kitchen or any space you want to be reminded of this perfect food item! My love affair with the avocado started shortly after I arrived in California, some 30 years ago. What’s not to love? Creamy, dreamy texture; Buttery, grassy taste, and the best of all, its color – chartreuse. I’m a sucker for chartreuse!

 

 

I <3 New York

Here’s a few photos from my recent NY trip. It was wonderful to spend time with my family and do some brief sightseeing in NYC. I wish we could have stayed longer to have the chance to meet up with friends in the area. Next time!

Finishing touches…

I was just in the studio this Friday morning. It feels great to be home after 1 1/2 weeks in New York. We had an amazing time in Buffalo and NYC. It’s nice to have the day to do as I wish.

This safety pin is part of my “sewing” series and it was also part of my “what the fuck is happening to our County series?!”  People were wearing safety pins to let others know that you are a safe being (to combat the increase in hate crimes since the election). Doing art, reading, and getting a good work out helps me deal with the ugliness in the world.

 

 

 

 

Are your going to Alameda County Fair?

It was a fun afternoon at the Alameda County Fair – my daughter played bari sax at the horse race stadium with her middle school band. It was such a wonderful year of music at her middle school – I feel so fortunate that we are part of the music community.

Today was a perfectly beautiful day – not too hot! We headed over to the adult art area and found my painting on display. I don’t know if I will ever get use to this experience of seeing my art in some place other than my studio or home.

Overall, it was a beautiful day!
