I’m just having some fun. This is a painting of the bungalow that my man and I stayed in for two months while working at a wildlife reservation in Costa Rica. It was a dream come true and I’ll never forget the exotic sweetness of it all.

I was trying to find the gorgeous trails along the river that I’ve heard so much about. But I guess I took the wrong path. I emerged out of the woods and onto a major street. And right in front of me was this striking piece of street art covering the side of a building.
German spray paint artist, Andreas von Chrzanowski, also known as Case, is a founding member of the graffiti crew Ma’Claim, a group of artists known for their photorealistic murals.
You can find this at Rheinvorlandstraße 7, D-68159.

If claustrophobic spaces inspire you to create, then the Keret House, named after the writer, Etgar Keret, is the place you need to be this fall. Architect Jakub Szczesny designed and constructed this 5-foot-wide house in the tiny space between post-war and pre-war buildings in Warsaw, Poland. Shortly after completion, the house was donated to the Foundation of Polish Art and has been classified as an art installation.
Now you, the artist, can apply to live in these tiny halls for 21 days to create something beautiful. Maybe it’s all about experiencing your inner child. Ya know, the part of you that’s scared to death of tiny spaces. The part of you that breathes faster when air is scarce.
My paintings would take a dark turn, that I know for sure. And can you even get it on with that small mattress? How can an artist be inspired without sex? I’m just saying.

You have a comfortable red couch and you’ve added a whiskey cabinet. You’ve dimmed the lights and turned on Little Dragon. Your living room has the ambiance of sexy. But maybe you say to yourself that you’re missing a little something extra, something special…
You’ll be pleased to know that Spencer Tunick has just compiled his 13 years of nude art into a hard back named European Installations. It’s something between performance art and design, and the perfect book to live on your coffee table.

It turns out that babies are cuter than computers! She’ll be 6 months soon and she’s a jewel. I continued to paint, but my blog took a hiatus for awhile.
Now I’m back to work! Thanks for hanging with me and being patient.
I just finished a large commission piece. It’s cherry blossoms on three 5 ft panels. I’ve had a blast working on them even if I had to do it at my in-laws because I’m leaving the country next week, and even though I cut my foot on the edge of a canvas because there was barely room for all 4 of us.
I can’t wait to see these in their new gorgeous home! Many thanks to the Juvenile
Diabetes Research Foundation of Houston for asking me to be a part of such a great cause. Enjoy the progress shots.
