Valentine Wishes and Versatile Blogger Award


Valentines Day...for thinking of our loved ones, family and friends. Pondering what we love about our passions and our lives. Debra of 5th and State has Given me the Versatile Blogger Award.So, I need to tell you some things about myself you may not know!

Ode to Helen Frankenthaler. I love the woman and the art that inspired this piece. The past year and a half I had lost the passion to paint. Granted I was dealing with some serious health issues. Most of my time on this blog is spent supporting other artists of all kinds, designers, entrepreneurs,etc.  I am so happy to say that I have picked up the brush again.

Mark Rothko White on Red. Another painter who has inspired me. Look how art inspires fashion and design Color Blocking is very current. There are many living artists I admire as well and will continue my artists series for 2012.
Cy Twombly This work of art is mesmerizing to me!


 This little girl looks so much like me at that age. I have always loved pets.
I have a loving, very furry Himalayan cat, Miss Belle!
Audrey Hepburn, a woman who lived a superb life, set a great example, always gave back, my style icon! Two of my older cousins, my Mother (who should be sainted) plus Audrey were my mentors!
Oh yes my dream was to be a Prima Ballerina and I love to dance.

In the winter I wear every shade of gray possible and then a bright top or scarf. However in the spring and summer the brighter colors come out! This from Fresh Produce!
I have a huge family and have a son and daughter plus four grandchildren. Isabella is the one who spends the most time with me. She is growing up too fast. How does that happen? We have many fun family get togethers.
My Favorite all time Scent Chanel # 5. Given to me by my first boyfriend along with the dusting powder. A gift I will never forget! I think a woman is more alluring and mysterious wearing a subtle scent of perfume. Another benefit is that it truly boosts your confidence.
I love, love to read! As a little girl one of my older cousins, Sharon gave me her books when she finished with them. As the eldest of eight children, this was such a special gift. Reading took me away to another world and I have been an avid reader ever since. My daughter and her boyfriend gave me a Kindle for Christmas and I love it. I do still like to have my "Real" Art and Interior Design books. 








Work on my latest painting!
