Today, I received an invite to join in with several other local (and amazingly talented artists) for a group exhibition during Praia Fest 2013. I am delighted to take part in this event–but, I am also honored to be included with these kind, local, talented artists.
I love my papa. We probably aren’t going to have a lot of long, deep, meaningful discussions about how our pasts have shaped our unique individual views of life. He tends to be a man a few words. However, it is safe to say I am the woman I am today because of the love and support he and my mother have provided throughout my life. He is also super funny. Therefore, since it is Father’s Day, it is only appropriate that I take this moment to share my gratitude for the love and support of my fantastic (and super tall) papa.
I received word that two of my four shipped bins for my upcoming exhibition in Great Falls, Montana–have arrived safely. I am hoping the other two arrive just as safe. YAY.
Two of my lovely friends are currently visiting Greece, which means, we are watching their adorable pets, Biggs and Belle. I wasn’t sure how their cat, Belle, would get on with our two dogs and weirdo cat. Well, it seems she is fitting in just fine–after a day of nervous growling and silent hissing, she has made herself at home. I love living in a house of adorable furry monsters.
Much like another recently commissioned work, this piece was created as a gift for a parent. My client wanted an original artwork for her husband for Father’s Day, capturing his love for his son, classic rock, and essentially all things hippy. It was a very fun and colorful project, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to create this work.
I woke up to a beautiful morning. I let the dogs out, and just took a moment to sit on the back steps, and watch my goofy dogs run around and be happy it is morning. The sun felt amazing on my skin, and my coffee was warm and delicious. I love those moments that I simply remember to slow down, take a look at all the beauty around me–and simply be grateful for the opportunity to live here.
I have several days off this week to catch up on life. I was excited to run errands, and take care of many odds and ends around the house. Awesome.
