..and this writer I found earlier.

“I swear to every heaven ever imagined,
if I hear one more dead-eyed hipster
tell me that art is dead, I will personally summon Shakespeare
from the grave so he can tell them every reason
why he wishes he were born in a time where
he could have a damn Gmail account.
The day after I taught my mother 
how to send pictures over Iphone she texted
me a blurry image of our cocker spaniel ten times in a row.
Don’t you dare try to tell me that that is not beautiful.
But whatever, go ahead and choose to stay in
your backwards-hoping-all-inclusive club
while the rest of us fall in love over Skype.
Send angry letters to state representatives,
as we record the years first sunrise so
we can remember what beginning feels like when
we are inches away from the trigger. 
Lock yourself away in your Antoinette castle
while we eat cake and tweet to the whole universe that we did.
Hashtag you’re a pretentious ass hole.
Van Gogh would have taken 20 selflies a day.
Sylvia Plath would have texted her lovers
nothing but heart eyed emojis when she ran out of words.
Andy Warhol would have had the worlds weirdest Vine account,
and we all would have checked it every morning while we
Snap Chat our coffee orders to the people
we wish were pressed against our lips instead of lattes.
 This life is spilling over with 85 year olds 
rewatching JFK’s assassination and
7 year olds teaching themselves guitar over Youtube videos.
Never again do I have to be afraid of forgetting
what my fathers voice sounds like.
No longer must we sneak into our families phonebook
to look up an eating disorder hotline for our best friend.
No more must I wonder what people in Australia sound like
or how grasshoppers procreate. 
I will gleefully continue to take pictures of tulips
in public parks on my cellphone
and you will continue to scoff and that is okay.
But I hope, I pray, that one day you will realize how blessed
you are to be alive in a moment where you can google search
how to say I love you in 164 different languages.”
..ok bye xx

INTERMEZZO

A great Charity, and group art show!


#TwitterArtExhibit utilizes social media and public engagement to generate income for charities and nonprofit organizations. In the past, #TwitterArtExhibit has generated funds for a library suffering from deep funding cuts to purchase much-needed children’s books, for an abused women’s shelter seeking to improve the lives of the families they serve, and for an arts organization mentoring underprivileged young adults in preparation for careers in the visual arts.


• Artists worldwide donate postcard-sized, handmade original artwork to the #TwitterArtExhibit.
• organizes a local, physical showcasing of the art.
• The public is invited to buy the art at an affordable, flat price.
• 100% of proceeds go to the charity.
• This provides artists with new exhibition opportunities, new audiences and benefactors, and appeals to art enthusiasts all over the world.
• It’s fun!

Currently in exhibit in Orlando Florida.

We got a centrally located Museum! yay Miami!!! best thing this Basel season.

PAMM



love the hanging garden by Patrick Blanc, reminds me of a little piece of Paris where I fell in love with his work. nice touch Miami!

Basel might still be a bit glossy, over saturated, plastic, commercial and a tad shallow.. but lots of fun and quite promising things are finally happening here, all with it's own unique Miami flavor. I'm actually excited about it all. Happy Baseling!

All of the significant art of today stems from Conceptual art. This includes the art of installation, political, feminist and socially directed art.

Conceptual art became the liberating idea that gave the art of the next 40 years its real impetus.

I would love to say there was some contemporary artist who’s work really got me thinking, but lately I have just been trying to sort out 20 years of garbage TV culture that is filling my brain. Cory Archangel

Simplicity is an asset, not a weakness... The smaller the idea the happier I am. - Cory Archangel

Lots of interactive art going on, I have a 'tiny art show' happening on Instagram every so often, look it up I post doodles and sketches. The Sketchbook Project will be in the greater Boston area July 6-8th so, if you are in the city of Lynn Mass. check out my book, it's going to be a great show.
I'm also a participant in an interesting interactive project at the Paintshop online.

"The Paintshop is a real time collaborative painting tool offering you the possibility to sell your artworks and buy great pieces of art for very competitive prices.
All the painters share the same canvas. As you paint onto the canvas, you also see other people paint. The painting can at any time be signed by one of the painters, who then becomes the owner of the piece. When the painting is signed, the canvas is cleared for all the other painters, and another painting can be produced.
The signed painting is for sale in the gallery in an edition of one. When the painting is sold, it's shipped to the buyer printed on high quality canvas (40x50cm) and the money, minus production costs and gallery commission (50%), is transferred to the owner.
The price of each painting is calculated using the Paintshop Rank™ algorithm and updated daily"
The Paintshop, Jonas Lund, 2012

Such a fun project and there are some interesting and sometimes disturbing pieces coming out of this collaboration, I also enjoy the anonymity of it all. Check it out it's addictive.

Got some free time to play around with nail water marble, a fun way of decorating your nails. This is the first time I try it and it went pretty well. Next time I will coordinate the colors with my outfit. Check out the tutorial below and when you have some time to experiment give it a try!

From my landscape and interior design sketch books:

We stumbled upon this building in Paris.
Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Garden System, known as Le Mur Vegetal in French, allows both plants and buildings to live in harmony with one another. The botanist vertical landscape designer is probably best know for his gorgeous living wall on the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris. But Blanc’s Vertical Garden System can be implemented anywhere: indoors or out and in any climatic environment.


































Landscaping, I have two completely opposite tastes, clean and minimal or wild and unkempt as if nature is 'taking back' it's space. The minimalist approach reminds me of Dutch design. Moss can be implemented in both options.


Original inspiration for vinyl glitter chairs.

I love unusual upholstery. These guys are the best in Miami Le Jeune Upholstery  they give artists a break in price.

I like collecting jars, grow herbs in them. Color jars with vines, dandelions and wild flowers.
I do love Hydrangeas (unlike Madonna) they remind me of grandmas, maybe that's why Madonna wants nothing to do with them.

Ironworks for the patio, functional and decorative, with vines growing on some of them. Sprayed painted glass chandeliers. (I love spray paint I could spray paint a whole room one single color)
Dinner party - mismatched dinner sets, silverware glasses candles and wine cups of different sizes.

Studio - Painting, Music, Poetry.  Wood stains I prefer shades of blue. Decor should always include: Wood, glass, stone and metal.

















Rustic or modern decor? I can not pick a favorite, my style is eclectic. ;)
