New Art Stuffs on the Easel & in the Sketchbook

A typhoon of art inspirations taking over my little studio room. Pulled everything out to get a good look at this sea of art inventory. Painted a couple new abstract pieces; a thick impasto-like abstract Guam sunset in blues and golds (16″x20″), and an abstract purplish flower piece (24″x36″). All acrylic paint. Also, I sketched …

Latest Creation: Moonlit Guam Jungle Tree & River

This Saturday was the September Creative Session at Guma’ Tasa, and while we only had a couple people, it was an opportunity to really focus in on what I was creating. I wanted to create some kind of enchanted forest artwork, but with a Guam jungle setting instead.

New Little Creations: Amethyst Latte Stone & Shooting Star

The other day I really needed to just sit and paint something. I chose these two small canvases (6″x8″), because I had an idea that I wanted to do pretty quickly, rather than a large piece. The first piece I did was a dark, “Amethyst Latte Stone” piece, with a sort of crystal and grunge …

Artist Date: Transforming Infinity Goddess Sketch into Painting (video)

Friday night, I took myself on an artist date, not knowing what I’d create. Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way, is known for encouraging “artist dates,” where you make time away from your usual work just to enjoy yourself, by yourself. It is a really rewarding experience, and I really cherish time for solitude. …

When you don’t like the design on your shirt, PAINT OVER IT!

So I had this shirt that said “L.A.” in a skeleton design. I don’t really have any connection to L.A. whatsoever, so walking around repping it feels weird. But the shirt is comfortable, and whatever. Anyway, I decided to throw some gold paint on it and see what happens. I am very happy with the …

2015 Electric Island Festival: A night of music, art, lights, dancing & people!

EIF was AWESOME!!! An epic night to remember (my sore legs are reminding me just how hard I danced that night) full of music, lights, art, dancing, and all around badassery. Every DJ killed it with their sets… and I might have a slight girl-crush on DJ Cookie. She freakin destroyed the place. Like, in …

Painting Party During the Lunar Eclipse on Guam

This Saturday was a full moon, lunar eclipse, and a painting party night! I had a private Creative Session with a wonderful group of ladies (and a curious kitty). They were inspired by a photo of an island and a turtle, so we let it evolve from there. My classes aren’t so much of an …
