Full Moon In Capricorn

I have never accepted Summer. Now I think I have to as we are all stuck in the mouth of the New York Dragon. Waiting in the subway station is comparable to waiting inside of a Volcano while you sweat your weeks supply of water out. Facing a hundred strangers wondering through underground passages while barely being awake because your are a Vampire. City life in the Summer is not for me… It hasn’t all been bad. MMmm.. Blue Subway June photoThe Summer Solistice welcomed a well earned Mac Makeup Certification, in which I was knighted by the beautiful Amy Ernest! Followed by an incredible metal show – the one and only  Messugah! Messugah has a very special place in my life, so seeing them on that great day was just meant to be. Gaaaaaa…. the incredible power and force behind that music is unparalleled. My face and head throbbed and pulsated with sound and light. Chest pounded and face melted – check.


Summer this year is all about Art, Beauty, the Sea Goddess, Seaweed, Iced Coffee, short adventures, Life reflections, Making People Pretty and new plans.

In June my partner and I ventured to Salem Massachusetts. Bewitched Samantha StatueTraveling out of the city for a short vacation is a necessity to lessen the risk of shooting your face off to end the Summer misery. There is a Samantha (Bewitched) Bronze Statue in the Town square, how cute is that?  Lots of  witchy shops and normal people, yet again we are the weirdos. :/ Quaint and small Village atmosphere. The New England area feels incredibly  Old American/Colonial. Strange Thing?  .. Walking through the old tombstones and shrines for the victims of The Witch Trials is a steady reminder of the human condition in group mentalities and hysteria. Ohh you humans. One day we might get along. . or not. Without trees, fresh air, water how do we live? City life is certainly putting a strain on my spirit. This is the toughest city for me to focus and make my creations, but again I will endeavor and pull my little beings out. New cool affordable art coming up for sale! Stay tuned.Blue Taxi

MF Gallery Group Toy Show – Brooklyn Fall 2013

TS13Nearly a month has passed, and so much has yet again transpired. In wonderful ways and very very difficult ways. I have made another journey, from the South to New York again for the fall and winter. With my art and little darlings packed we headed on our way. Another friend of mine has passed away, may he rest in peace James Gleason. I am wishing the best for all the people I know, and may they find what they are looking for to full fill their life.

Halloween happened and I had more work come my way. Special thanks to Johnny Madison, Michael Blase, Rita Wu & Vanessa Marek. For fall this year I was invited to be a part of the Annual MF Gallery Art Show in Brooklyn NY on November 16th 2013. So happy to have these dear little ghost children after all the hard work to be put up on display. Thank you Johnny Madison for all the support, and thank you to all who made it out — My mother!, Michael Blase, Kelly Kotulak, Vanessa & Paul/Matt/mom, Rita Wu & Paul, Deniz Golpinar, His lovely wife, Jonny Aquadora, Peter Arvo, Jon Darling & Bridget Dahl!  The dollies are now available through the gallery here: www.mfgallery.net  & New Website New Galleries Here: embryblue.com
