Fun news!
I have a new painting up in a museum in Balboa Park for a six week show.
Opening night is this Saturday, April 5th, and the show runs until mid-May.

The painting above was chosen for their Regional Exhibition. Most of the art displayed (including mine) in the exhibition will be for sale.

More information about the SDAI Museum of the Living artist and the Exhibition can be found on their website.

My mother recently gave me a disk of old family photos she has scanned and archived over the years.
These go back to the mid 1800’s and show me the evolution of my facial features over the last 150 years.

One of my favorites was my grandmother as a wee one playing a ukelele, but then I found one of her mother, a few years prior as a teenager, playing air guitar on a tennis racket in the early 1920’s at her high school in the San Fernando Valley.

Yes. Air guitar. On a tennis racket.
This must be where I get my mad air guitar skills from.

A new year, new items in the etsy store, new website, new outlooks and perspectives.
Also was given some old photos, that are new to me!

There is something about the magnitude of beauty in this place.

Came across a great slow motion video of ladybugs.
I never knew their wings folded up like that.

As my nephew (cutest kid in the world) gets closer to his first birthday, I am reminded how much he has grown since he was born, and more so, since I saw the first ultrasound picture, where he was the size of a peanut.

A couple of months ago I created a short montage of the photos I took of my brother and his wife as they journeyed though the experience of pregnancy.

I would definitely love to put together more of these projects.  The photo-taking process was fun, the editing was fun, and the results are satisfying.  Enjoy!

…to toast. (with melty peanut butter on top! mmm…)

…and to staying toasty warm. It’s nice having a fireplace here, but the rest of the house gets so icy cold.

and a toast to birthdays-
Happy birthday Monetta!
