Art 4 Heart

So I opened up my email this morning, inspired and just itching to start my new year with creating new art. The email was from someone I had never met, but had found my work through the local Art Association here in Camarillo, of which I am a member. The even invited me to participate in an art show through St. John's Pleasant Valley Hospital. That was the hospital in which I gave birth to my son, and I have to say, they really took care of me there. I couldn't have had a better "birth" experience.

Anyway, back to the event. It is to promote awareness for the prevention of heart disease in women. All of the art will be "heart" related. What a wonderful way to start the new year, and my new body of work! I am going to do a version of a sacred heart, and it will be up for auction in February--of course the proceeds will go to benefit the hospital and the program.

If anybody is interested, let me know, I'll give you all the details. I'll be posting the painting as I finish it.



Living Dead Doll Art Show Pics finally up!

You've all seen the Living Dead Dolls, right? Well, they had their first Living Dead Doll Art Show in New York opening date was, of course, Halloween night. Different artists, some fairly famous artist: "Michael Dougherty, artist and screen writer on Superman Returns and X Men 2; comic book legend Simon Bisley; gothic artist and musician Voltaire; toy development power house Inu Art Studios; Oblongs TV show creator and artist Angus Oblong; famous Japanese designer Hiddy; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle writer, creator and artist Kevin Eastman and many more." as well as many unknown/emerging artists (i.e. ME!)

They have finally posted all of the dolls on their website, which you can see (and buy if you choose to own a one of a kind doll) by clicking this link: http://www.lddartshow.com/artists.asp

Here is the doll that I made, The Weeping Woman, based on the story of La Llorona. If you don't know the story, there are different versions of it---google "La Llorona" and you'll find a bunch. VERY interesting story. Very closely related to the Banshee.

Comments would be very appreciated!
