Merry Christmas, lovelies!! Don’t eat too much!
Don’t you just love Thanksgiving? The crisp in the air, the pie, the time with friends and family, the pie, the reminder of our abundance and the chance to spend a day in gratitude, the pie… what’s not to love. I have so much to be grateful for this year and so much to be excited about in the year to come.
Thanks to all who support my work, me, buy the art, read the blog, come to the shows, send messages, all of it, all of it, all of it… Thank you.
Have a super happy Thanksgiving everybody. Eat yourselves silly, then go back for more. And remember to take home leftovers for a sandwich. xoxoxoxo
It’s 5.30 in the morning… I’ve been getting up earlier these days, but this was not on the agenda.
I started a 40 day yoga challenge yesterday. I go most days anyway, but this is a commitment to a larger challenge, trying to set a new habit pattern. So I went first thing yesterday morning and didn’t have any tea before class, because I didn’t want to have to pee halfway through. Then I ran right out after a quick shower (went out to lunch with a pal and to see the Hedi Slimane exhibit at MOCA – a really interesting installation if you’re around) and with one thing and another, never had any caffeine yesterday.
Woke up around 4.30am, in exquisite pain. Such a headache. I’m now on my second cup of serious black tea and the hurt has almost subsided. I guess I’ll go to the 1.30pm class today rather than the 9.30am. I’ll work for a bit now, then take a nap by 11 for an hour, then go to yoga. I’m supposed to go to a couple openings tonight, but I might be wacky by then.
How does one ween from caffeine without a headache? I wasn’t intending to give it up, but if this is what happens when I go 30 or so hours without, I have to get off of it. And here’s another question, if I stop drinking tea regularly, can I have a cup occasionally, or will I get a headache the next day? This really sucks.

Happy to be home for the holidays!
Was riding uptown on the train yesterday when I decided to get off at Columbus Circle and go to the Museum of Art and Design. I’m so glad I did! Turns out Rebecca Ringquist – who’s work I adore! – is the Wednesday afternoon artist in residence through March. And she’s just as lovely as she is talented. If you’re near NY and have a mid-week afternoon free, go go go meet her and learn about her work.
Here’s a sample of what she’s currently working on:
And then I went for pizza.
Being in NYC always makes me nostalgic for Carvel cakes of yore… Here’s a little holiday spirit from the late 80′s.
So much excitement happening here! So much to be grateful for! I’ll share after the holidays. Travel safe, eat well, and try not to fight. xxx
Spent a super fun night carving pumpkins with the neighbors. Being me, I did one pumpkin, a weird white pumpkin (that smelled so good, and fresh, and clean, and strangely like cucumber), and a smallish green gourd. I only want to carve gourds and weird pumpkins from now on. They have such strange shapes and odd looks, that they are inherently evil looking.
Tomorrow I will start posting about my trip to the UK (which was amazing), but I’m tired, so you get more photo search. All images are from the Flickr commons.
No words can do justice. Behold the genius of Bascom Hogue!
I am in love with the work of Olly Moss. He’s a design guy who’s swiftly moving into the art world. He made his first “art print” for Gallery1988′s Lost project, and it’s been off to the races since then. His stuff is being marked up and resold on Ebay for inordinate amounts (14x the original price???), so if you can grab something on it’s release, and you love it, you should!
His imagery is so strong. You know what the piece is without reading the small print. Read the rest of this entry »
