The muse is hungry after my long hiatus . It was nice reconnecting with my roots after spending practically all of last year painting huge murals. Not to mention the truly profound experience I had being pregnant almost the entire time. Then giving birth. It sounds cliche, but the whole experience was really moving because I thought it would change me completely, but it hasn’t. I’m still as fearless as I was when I began! What a surprise!!

This is another piece from the Vizcaya series. It’s a rendering of, what we consider to be, the most sacred place in the gardens. The land is heavy with a kind of romantic energy. It gave my husband and I the most remarkable and deep connection either of us had ever felt! We go there to recharge every year.
That is a pastel drawing I created in 2003, from one of our favorite places on Earth.
It is a sacred center of power and magick, here in the heart of Miami. It is Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and it is our special place.
And now, thanks to Iron Man 3, the whole world gets to join us…
Very exciting times.
We have been teaching the wonderful Beaux Arts Spring Break Art Camp at the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami, enjoying the glowing creativity of a nest full of marvelous young artists. Little did we know how much fun this week would really be. Thanks to the amazing kindness and overwhelming generousity of Chris and Adrienne Bosh, their Team Tomorrow Inc. foundation graciously partnered with Divine Delicacies to brighten the Spring season for all of our lucky students. It was a day that we will never forget, complete with green tongues and autographs from the magnificent Adrienne Bosh and the incredible Tamia Styles.
Happy Spring to one and all!

This piece is #2 in the series. I chose Novice Hame because she’s a really controversial figure in the show. On the one hand she and her peers in the senate do everything they can to protect the people of their world, but to the point of tyranny. On the other hand, she is the guardian of the race, trying to ensure that the species is safe guarded from death and disease. She began with the purest of intentions. But her dream was flawed. A fact she was oblivious to until the Dr. pointed it out.
