This is an invitation for the opening reception for my show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery on January 4th. Woohoo. If you are in the Los Angeles area, please come by and say hello.

I'll be the one hanging out being internally neurotic and trying not to care if people like my art or not and acting all cool and stuff. You know, it is possible to be confident and nervous at the same time. I don't think you are supposed to admit this. You are supposed to act like you know whats going on. Do you dig what I am saying?

Anyway, the reception's at La Luz are very laid back, so bring your friends. Oh yes, feel free to buy some art too. That is a good thing to do. It will make you a better person.

Sneak Peak

Right now I am writing you from Pittsburgh, PA! I am cold and wimpy and full of bad-for-you food. My stomach hurts. This morning we had sticky buns made by Amish peeps. YUMMY. I am here visiting my family for the holidays.

So here is a sneak peak of one o' the big paintings (5 feet by 4 feet, dang!) I did for my show at La Luz de Jesus on January 4th. It is called "Lemon Fresh Pretty." It has changed a bunch from the earlier picture I took (see below). It is inspired by all the ads we see during our lives informing us of the bad smells we make, our lack of prettiness, that we are too fat, and all our flaws that will cause others to like us less. Who knew? The good news is there are many products that will save us from an empty life of likelessness! YAY.

Actually I shouldn't be too hard on the advertising industry. I like to have fresh breath and white teeth and to smell good and I truly appreciate this in others. Without advertising, I do believe we would all be hairy and smelly people with rotting teeth. ANYWAY.... The photo isn't that great, not sure why, because I had it professionally shot. You can't really see the details and the color is off. I guess you'll have to come see it in person!! Anyway blah blah blah. I'll be blah blah blahing about my show for the next week so watch out.

OK one more thing. Check out this blog. She wrote the nicest things about my art that I have ever had anyone say about it before. It made my day.

Imitation Snakeskin Superstore

Down to my last week for working on my show. Stressing out. Working on a show is amazing and terrible at the same time. I feel like a crazy person every day. If you could be inside my head you'd be nauseous. The show is called "Imitation Snakeskin Superstore" and it is about trying to fit in and being cranky. I also extended my one-a-day paintings for the month of December for this show. You can see these at

Here is an in-progress picture of another piece I am working on called "Comfort and Support." It will look a lot different in the end. I don't want to give too much away. It is 3 feet by 4 feet on canvas.

You are invited to the opening on January 4, 2008. Groovy! Don't forget to sign up for my mailing list. You'll get a preview.

Anyway gotta stop and get back to work. I am off to Philly and Pittsburgh for the holidays next week. There is no time to lose.
