Hanukkah Cards

I have some new cards up in my Zazzle store – Perfect for Hanukkah! How do you celebrate? We usually make latkes and light the menorah. This year, the first night is Dec 10th. I know that celebrating will look a bit different this year. I plan on sending more cards. Hopefully, next year, we will be able to celebrate together, in person.

Melania’s poor life

Art is how I deal with the crazy in the word. I want to practice portraits of people that I have no connection to and Melania was front in my mind. There’s a audio recording of her saying “who gives a fuck about this Christmas stuff?” – First, I love that she swears. I bet it is the only way to keep her sanity. It became obvious that she is hating her role as a FLOUS. I had a moment of “you go girl” in support of her misery. We all feel your misery! Then, she blew it. She loves that the kids are in cages and supports the separation of children from their mothers. She is vial.

You can hear the recordings here if you’d like.

I made these as 2020 Christmas cards over at Zazzle. For each card sold, I will donate $1.00 to KIND (Kids in Need of Defense) – They ensure that children get proper legal representation. That is be best.

work in progress

Working on this dahlia painting. There’s a neighbor who has the most beautiful front graden. Tons of dahlias, sunflowers and even some veggies. It is full of life and it always restores my mood. These flowers have tons of nooks and crannies!

Round canvases are fun!

Mirror Ball

Spent the morning in my art studio. Got to get out my paints and get messy! I have a few ideas on what to do with these round canvas panels. Today, it was mirror ball time. It aint a party, till the mirror ball gets going!

My inner Sunset

The Inner Sunset – San Francisco neighborhood – the place I lived in my early adult years. It was an exciting time – relationships, jobs and having fun. I lived here on an entry level non-profit “salary.” I could walk to Golden Gate Park and the de Young Museum; longer walks to the Ocean (usually a bike ride). It had a neighbood feel. We came together after the big earthquake or celebrating the 49ers wins.

I moved to the other side of the park (outer Richmond) and then to upper Castro, before making the journey to the other side of the Bay.

We love doing day trips into the City – often going to the restaurants we onced took for granted. Love my City by the Bay!

More Suburban Bliss

This house painting is of my childood home in Syosset, NY. I lived there from 1st grade through college. I loved going in to NYC and driving out to Jones Beach or Cold Spring Harbor. We had great pizza and bagels nearby. Lots of fun memories.
