Art has it's calling, it speaks for itself. It takes form with me. It is magic, a mythical dream come to life and all I do is immerse myself in it. It makes contact, a colorful welcome. And when I smudge my fingers in paint, layers start to form into the canvas, ways that is fantastical and fun. Iam taken. Art for me is a visit I take. A place where I can do what ever I want, where no one interfers. And when I'm done stirring emotion, let me tantalize your heart and spirit with every stroke of magic.

This is a piece my boyfriend George put together. It's beautiful!! I thought it would be nice to add it in my blog "A art masterpiece" done by George Wolfe. This was taken in Old San Juan. He took bits and pieces of stuff and collage it together, notes that were sent, maps, hand made cards full of vibrant colors, love letters and photographs. It was brilliant!!!!!

Hello everyone, I have re-named my blog at The Itsy Bitsy Spill.
This is a very touchy piece because it involves a child growing up in a dysfunctional home, and it's called "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" It deals with violence, I say, no more. The piece explains itself. I love this painting, it is done in acrylic and collage with a bit of writing in the backdrop.

It was a lot of fun doing these tiny little babies, all three 6x6 I found the size adorable and fun to work with, especially of course the collage. I felt crafty! I wanted to do something different, not much pain but purely collage, with a touch of watercolor and writing, especially on this one.
She's a beauty! I just love these three series, I find them so beautiful! I wanted to experiment with collage alone but felt that with a touch of color would be just perfect. I love it!
This itsy bitsy piece is done in collage,watercolor and acrylic.
It reminds me of a picture of the 1950's sooo eloquent and chic!

While I fish through the fridge for some night snack realizing how late it is, I decided it wasn't time to go to bed yet. My mind was going through, what we call, "over load of thoughts" just swimming back and fourth. So I felt like writing and sharing with you folks. Today was A Day when I felt I wanted to pull my hair, OH YEAH!! It was Painting Day and not one painting came out right. So I played with my cat for a while, had some tea and stared at the paintings and cried, well just a little. Then my cat went out hunting and brought me a gift, a helpless little lizard. Now, I'm screaming, ooh no! at the top of my lungs because Sammy my cat jumping, running like a maniac knocked all paints and brushes and suddenly splash, water splattered all over my paper and all because a helpless little creature. Suddenly BAM! he got it, poor little lizard DEAD! It was over. So I painted some more but my groove was stuck somewhere and I could not paint. I decided it was best to leave it alone for today and just sketch some ideas, it worked perfectly. Tomorrow is another new day! That's all folks!

Art has no rules, we artists know that. The beauty of art is expressing yourself in every level. Is a whirlpool of emotions carried into visual landscapes of dreams and reality. So take a naked canvas and spill your soul into it and have fun! Our best piece is when we discover a whole different world inside ourselves and share it to the world to see. Whether we are angry, sad or happy. It's therapeutic to Smudge the over load of stuff we feel thrown into the canvas. Beauty comes when we can see it straight in the face and accept all and conquer the next. We let go and learn to believe in our ability to create beautiful things no matter how painful some might be. Well, that's all folks!
My next show coming up on May 15th is called "The Doses Of Love." As you can see here, she is taking her daily pill which looks like a heart--her dose of love. Let me explain further: I was inspired by the changes occurring in my life now, about the inner child in me, about relationships with love ones, my relationship with life, family and my boyfriend who is my best friend. Every day I'm learning to live life beautifully without taking it too seriously--that we all have a choice to create our own destiny. So my daily dose is to see life with love and acceptance and to leave out all the little critters that tend to overshadow the light but embrace it fearlessly.
