Here is tomorrow's Happy Monday print:
Friday, February 22, 2008
And here is the artwork...
"Okay to Be Different" (print)
"Adagio" (original painting)
"Room for Everyone" (print)
"February" (original painting)
Susan Sarandon purchased the two prints "Okay to be Different" and "Room for Everyone." Julia Roberts purchased the original painting, "February." And Owen Wilson is the proud owner of "Adagio."
I didn't get to meet Susan or Julia, but I was there when Owen Wilson started pulling "Adagio" off the wall at the Ten Women Gallery holiday party. I was outside chatting with my friends when I went in and asked, blushing beet red, "Can I help you with anything?" and he said "I'd like to buy this one." Of course, I was more than happy to bring it up to the cash register -- and my mom ran up to him and said "Oh, that's my daughter's painting!" I'm surprised she didn't ask for his phone number. : ) He was really cute in person, and quite a romantic, it seems.
Of, course, I think that everyone who purchases my artwork is a STAR! And I thank you all for being so supportive and for helping me to keep doing what I love. Have a beautiful weekend (it's snowing here in New York).

Oh, how I loved seeing our names etched onto the gallery window! Marisa Haedike and I have been lucky enough to exhibit our work together since 2005! First at the Ten Women gallery in Venice, CA, then again Christmas of 2006 in LA for the gloriously fun "darklings" show and, finally, this past fall at the Enormous Tiny Art Show ii at wonderful Nahcotta. Yet I will always treasure the above photo because it is just the two of us, and Marisa is such a dear friend and inspiring artist.
PS - while the sign says the show ends Feb. 1, it has actually been extended through the end of February. So visit if you are in the neighborhood!

I got myself a little trinket, too, this beautiful necklace from ETSY artist Lorelei.
Fulfilling a lifelong dream of mine, our family has moved to an adorable 1920s cottage by the water in Long Island. It is so cute, and I can't tell you how nice it is to wake up to the sound of birds rather than car horns, sirens and jackhammers of Manhattan. I feel truly blessed. I will post pictures after we do a bit more decorating. You will see my paintings featured prominently (of course!). And, by the way, our new house is in Centerport, NY -- the very town where I spent my wild youth.
