I’ve been battling all summer trying to get new art work in and making new artwork. Thanks to the inspiration of Monica Doyle, I think I will get the ball rolling and start posting more regular entries as well as new and old artwork. I feel very inspired.

Iconic Medallion, mixed media

Iconic Medallion was created while in residency at the University of Iowa during my MFA program. It was exhibited and sold at the The Chait Galleries Downtown.

Just arrived back in Iowa after a visit to New York. Spent time in NYC too. Visited El Museo del Barrio, the Guggenheim, and the Museum of the City of New York this trip. It was my mom’s first trip to the Guggenheim.

I’ve loved this song since I was a kid in Puerto Rico. Sylvia Rexach was a genius artist who is not nearly as well known as I think she should be. oh yeah i messed up a word at the end of the song….oy i wish there had been a take two.

While I do occasionally create performance art, this is a piece which I just enjoyed singing, and I’m sharing it to teach people that they should do enjoy doing things they love, share with others, and not be afraid to jump out there in the world!

aside

I’m spending a few weeks in Syracuse, my annual summer trip to New York to see family, relax, and let my dog Ipanema spend time with her cousins Papito and Nena (both Cairn terriers) playing in the backyard. Ipanema is very energetic, last night she was chasing fireflies!
