wall of inspiration

My wall of inspiration used to be more of a clutter wall tape exsplosion. Now I just have a few small paintings one from my Goddaughter on the top ( great sense of color and so young!)  and One from Alicia Solo (The Beautiful Bodies)  Also a vintage family photo and tiny miniture oil and gold leaf piece that I did.  To left is an installation I like to call "the buzzer that hasnt worked in 30 years" :)

friday morning ... listening to the black keys

listening to the black keys

blending melodies with paint

on the sound

smelling the sound

hearing the color

love the mixture  

that comes from

Oh, what an ordinary day

 

"Birth In Reverse" by St Vincent

 

Oh, what an ordinary day 

Take out the garbage, masturbate 

I'm still holding for the laugh 

The dogs will bark so let them bark 

The birds will cry I'll let them cry 

Here's my report from the edge 

Like a birth in reverse 

What I saw through the blinds 

You could say that I'm saying phenomenal lies 

On the cosmic eternity party line 

Was a birth in reverse in America 

This tune will haunt me through the war 

Laugh all you want but I want more 

Cause what I'm swearing, I've never sworn before 

Like a birth in reverse 

What I saw through the blinds 

You could say that I'm saying phenomenal lies 

On the cosmic eternity party line 

Like a birth in reverse in America 

Like a birth in reverse 

What I saw through the blinds 

You could say that I'm saying phenomenal lies 

On the cosmic eternity party line 

Was a birth in reverse in America

NYC & me...5 year anniversary!!

I moved to NYC 5 years and a week ago.  4 days after I moved here I had my first and only solo bike accident without a helmet.. i completed my first week reconnecting with old friends covered in bandages.  

I was so excited to do a group gallery show the first month I was in NYC with artists from all over the world in the LES organized by Alexandra Catalan.

 Like a strong woman that captures  you with her tenacity; NYC is opinionated and passive ...alluring and vile...passionate and chill... I am smitten and I dont think Ill ever leave her.

here is a photo of the underdrawing of my beautiful friend Cyrina that was the first painting I began in NYC 5 years ago today. 

it seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time
