So I moved into th new loft over by Brooklyn Navy Yard and I am out walking with the girls one lovely spring evening. I stumble upon this amazing space filled with great artwork and it is across the street from my house.
These guys are amazing artists and super nice people on top of it. They came to my little dinky opening in tribeca even though they had to go to another 5 events that evening. Thanks guys. They had one the next night but I could not attend due to the fact that I slipped in oil paint the night before in my 3 inch heels and broke my ASS! I am not kidding, it is somewhat embarrassing.
Anyhow here are some of my favorite works, check them out, I hope we will get the chance to show together in september.

in a paper bag

I find great comfort in the littlest things. I love the brown paper from brown paper lunch sacs. I used them when I was kid. I packed them myself full of peanut butter and grape jelly sandwiches , apples and whatever else was available that day. It is a completely impractical material for such a  lunch, the grape jelly would always seep through, Anyhow, I have been working on these new paintings and using a lot of brown paper from paper bags. I love it as a material mixed with the texture of paint.
There will be 6 new works all together  at the end of htis month not including my largest 10' x 10' which I will photograph tomorrow. I hope these upcoming shows are properous in many ways. I am hoping to continue this work and be more frequently painting. It brings me great joy to do so...
here is a new one finished today

New work in the new space

So I have been busy getting the new space in order, shooting a few things for magazines including one thing to be featured on the ipad ! Publishing going live for the ipad is a whole new thing and a new world for me and many others I presume.
I have also been preparing for a small show in NY and a group show in Chicago. It is all very exciting, but chaotic to say the least. Nevermind that I have the preteen thing going on here with Kodie and the terrible 2's with Zana. I am ready for a break for sure!
Anyhow here are a few new things and a few snapshots of parts of the space. I love it here, I love working here especially. It is a nice space where we can all move free and open throughout. The girls run wild and love it and I am working on that huge canvas 10' x10', I am in heaven. I have been making things and just enjoying a new feeling of home.

an invitation

So I am having a little party/opening at a great studio in NYC where I shoot sometimes. We are going to hang my new work for a night/ There are more shows coming over the summer more in NY and one in Chicago as well as LA so this is more like a preview, but if you are around the area, stop by for a glass of wine.

My Apologies

So we made it! We moved into our new amazing space and we are all exhausted. I have been so busy sorting it all out and shooting everyday that I have been lagging behind on my blogging duties. I will be back on track by the end of this week. I have some amazing pictures to share of new work and the new space I can't wait to get painting in!
