on the sidewalk: NYC

4 Feb

Oh how I wish I could roll out of bed, toss my hair up, throw on some layers, and not care that my slouchy boots are overly slouchy… That’s how I imagine this lady prepared herself the day this photo was shot. BEAUTIFUL – so simple.

pita jungle

3 Feb

i just got home from sylvia’s birthday extravaganza. we started the night with dinner at one of my all time fav places to eat–pita jungle! one of the greatest things about pita jungle (other than the amazing food) is the art you get to gawk at while you eat. the restaurant features art from local arizona artists and is constantly decorating it’s walls with new art.

we ate at the tempe, az location which featured work by artists Don Will.

his work was surrounding a central idea but consisted of very different styles. looking at the art, i would have thought the paintings were by different artists.

you can check his additional paintings out at the tempe location or visit any other pita jungle to view other artists’ work.

If you are an artist interested in showing at Pita Jungle please send an email to

hi! welcome to my blog and thank you, thank you for visiting! you’re probably wondering exactly what my blog is going to be about. cool. me too! this is going to be an ongoing process for me (a journey even) through my life, my world, my universe and i’ll be sharing (most of it) with you. : )

a couple things about me for starters:

i’m a painter. i love the arts.

i also sketch.

i love fashion and music. i think fashion and music go together like a lamb and tuna fish…maybe you like spaghetti and meatball? you more comfortable with that analogy? (via the movie Big Daddy). here’s what i mean.

so please feel free to comment on anything you see here or ask me anything you like…i don’t bite. plus, i’m new to this so no worries. lets go!!
