I love art.  I have always doodled, drawn, traced, painted, and created in any way possible.  When I needed to escape I was able to construct my means.  I am not breaking any barriers in innovation, but my contribution however small and amateur are better than none.  I keep making and going.  It is the only way I know how to be.  Last week the Art Project, by Google opened up.  It is a virtual way to explore museums from all over the globe.  Some museums have online virtual tours of their galleries, and if lucky of special exhibition, and events.  Google has taken art and put it on steroids.  You can navigate the museums, look at the art, zoom into the works and bring up all this information: height, medium, notes, other work by same artist, etc.  It is amazing!

This is how I get to escape without leaving Florida. My eye candy:

Human Experience #10,875 : Birth of PUSH


The aftermath:

I started by dripping black paint and using a brush to push the paint about the canvas.
Then I used my hands to smear it around.  The static object:


I used the same technique with the blue, using the same paintbrush.  I wanted to transfer some of the black paint onto the blue to show an attachment between the elements.

I mixed the orange and just splattered it on the painting. I used the natural splash from the orange paint to direct the motion. The colors mixed together adding to the effect of movement and depth.

I wanted the picture to capture the momentum of Push.
I knew the colors I wanted to use and the feel that it needed to have.
Translating it onto canvas was the original challenge, but I got it together
and worked it out.  I want it to say:

Don't Stop. Keep Going. Push Through. Obstacles are welcomed.

Intentional inspirational piece; keep on keeping on:

I need a better picture, once it is more presentable.

I love it.

Manicure Monday: Neon Texture

I started my nails Monday in my total girly night of vogue, cosmo, and RHCP.  I wasn't excited about the hot pink color alone.  I wanted texture and today I found it.  My shower poof.  I have another one so I cut some pieces and stuck it on, applying clear hard top coat.   It feels awesome. 

I bought the hot pink to commemorate the pink layout on the Vogue cover.

before boring:

The plastic mixed with the clear top coat and made a purplish color happen:

Blast from the Past: Manicure Wednesday

Last Wednesday I did my mani/pedi to have is fresh for Team Sheen on Thursday.

I went a little modest.  Commander in Chic with black dost that smeared when I applied the top coat:

Holy Products = Money!!!!

I have been busy and playing catch up on here.  But alas I am catching up :D

Products like this make me laugh out loud.  I wish I could of came up with it.
As an Atheist I don't think I am capitalizing on the crazy existence of believers.  They scheme each other already.  I might as well get mine.

Saw this at the dollar store and made me miss Pants Off VWeekend ;)


Architecture + Vacation: Free Spirit Hotel

This is my kind of spot: seclusion in the woods.  Getting lost in the Canadian forest has never looked so posh.  These spheres are not the typical room, tucked 15 feet up above the ground they provide unconventional accomodations.  This fits right in with my love for all things spheres.  Buckminster would be proud.
