The icing on the cake

This is where I was on Monday. I was manning " The icing on the cake", my friend's specialty boutique while she was visiting the island of Paros.  It's the cutest little store and when I first saw it, it reminded me of an art gallery for children :)

Does that baby blanket look familiar?
Being there brought back memories from when I lived in the US. I belonged to a co op gallery in Alexandria, VA.  at the Torpedo Factory, which was an actual torpedo factory! I showed my textiles there and once a month I would man the gallery :)  what a great experience that was! The whole building was full of art studios! Talking about energy! At the end of the day I felt so inspired and lucky.

Haven't figured out yet what was going "through" my head as I was painting this one.. A little confusion is ok, as long as it doesn't last too long. right?!  Things always fall into place, eventually.. I can feel  that positive energy just around the corner..:)
A bit late with my entry for the 365 challenge..even though I started working on it weeks ago.. I must have repainted this spread at least three times, since I couldn't make up my mind! lol 
Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!!
ps. Daisy says hi. she loves all the attention she's getting from Yiayia (grandma, in greek)

art therapy

Hope you are well and had a beautiful Easter, my friend. Please forgive me for not posting, I have been staying with my mom and still am, and internet connection is real here I am, at Starbucks, drinking coffee, thinking about you and how your art is coming along..
All I can say for my post today is...thank God for my art! and my mom for being here and taking such good care of me, when I truly need her :)
What would we do if we didn't have our art to escape and to express our true feelings? you ever think of that? how lucky we are as artists?..
love always,
