how to tame a fish..

 My art has always reflected events or stories that either I have experienced myself consciously or subconsciously. This will be my third book and I have to say that the brain is a funny thing!  With all three of these books, I swear to you that I had completely different ideas as to what each one would be, but as I began drawing..something took over!  Only when I would finish each one, I'd go back each page and carefully study each one and fully understand what it really meant to me in real life. I hope I'm making sense, here. This is the first time I am analyzing myself! lol  no shrink needed here!

I will let the book speak for itself and not tell my story, and let the viewer to interpret on their own. The reason for doing so, is that in the past, when I would tell people the true story they would turn in disappointment and say " ohh and I thought it it was a fairy tale"  lol! and I would ruin it for them!

My "fish" needed some adjustment, if you know what I mean..some fine tuning..

sneak peek

I've been on a roll with my itsy bitsy books and am currently working on my third one. The title is " How to tame a fish". Sounds kinda funny, I know, but once again as I started this book, my hand just took over. I never intended to make the fish as the main character, but who knows how my subconscious is working lately...here's a little peek.
Meanwhile I have new prints available in my shop. stop by and check them out :)

it's an average life..

My blog friend Tracy asked me to create a painting inspired  her blog. She gave me a few hints of things that make her happy and gave me complete carte blanche. Tracy is a writer, so I had a pretty good idea of what I would create for her..a little girl writing poetry, under a tree, bees, flowers,etc etc.. but then I sat down at my table..and my hand just took over..lol  didn't want to play "safe".  Nothing average about ladybugs swimming in the sea . I was smiling the whole time I was painting and thought to myself.."yeah, she'll love this" and she did!!  Thank you Tracy for the inspiration :)

My other news is that, opening night for the "Homo Sapiens in Love" was a huge success! I have never seen so many people attend a show, like this, before. It was so exciting to see my sculpture get so much attention, I wanted to stay all night and listen to the beautiful comments! lol. My friends had to drag me away at 2 am. I will be posting pics as soon as the curator sends them out, because the ones that I took..are lousy! I think I had too many gin tonics that evening! lol
