on the process of making art: inspiration 2

in the last weeks i have been pretty much watching the world in the perspective of my bed. this last edition of the flu is not fun. a deceptive illness that makes you fell miserable for a few days, then when you think everything will be okay, you are thrown in bed again. just in time for the group show “Tarts, Trollops, and Tramps” to which i had planned some cool pieces with a cool concept i had developed just for the show, but that i was just too miserable […]

Inner Self Portrait Show 3

i am honored by being invited as part of one more exhibition of The Forgotten Goddess project. the show, called Inner Self Portrait, will display artworks from victims of domestic violence alongside other women artists from all over the world. the proceeds will benefit Haven Hills, California company that provides shelter and support for victims of domestic violence. i consider myself a person of so many facets that is quite difficult to paint a self portrait that would involve everything i would like to express. to paint my “inner self portrait” at this […]
