“Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge
to all the generations of the world.” — Leonardo Da Vinci
I have been browsing Airbnb lately as I plan a short trip to NYC this summer. It was interesting to run across a listing in which the feedback complaints were about the lack of art. People are recognizing more and more how necessary art is to creating a happy environment. The highest priced places were the most colorful, with an artful presentation that brings an relaxed joy to the eyes.
With this in mind, I have been looking for ways to offer more affordable options of my own art, yet retaining a quality and presentation that is tasteful and lasting. So after researching and testing, I have found the solution with high quality art prints on stretched canvas. These are available in my shop listed by size and shape. For example, this “Joie de Vivre” Oil 48×60″ original is available for $3000. But you can get a high quality canvas print version ready-to-hang and delivered to your door in a 30×40″ size for $300 plus shipping. Or get the small version for your bath at an easy $100.
After finishing a mural in chalk on chalkboard paint yesterday in Pacific Heights, I was reminded how much I enjoy murals. They are the perfect art form to transform a space from blah to boldly beautiful!

As May springs forward with all the Beltane promise of abundance and joy, I finished a new Art Furniture piece. In the Steampunk tradition of updating the old with swankety style, this New Growth Lingerie Chest is waiting to gracefully adorn your dressing room.
As the last details of the Divine Feminine Cape fiber arts work for The Luscious Bum Project are completed, I reflect on love of self, compassion for others, and conceptual art. I have been overjoyed to have a chance to explore the double entendre that is The Luscious Bum. On one side is the oil painting, an over-sized ode to the supple joy of the physical manifestation.
So a series of interesting events has the content of Swankety Swank from November 2010 until now completely lost and deleted. Talk about obstacles!! I wrote all about that on my other blog here. I am going through all the hoops again to get my domain name connected here and import the portfolios, etc. So please hang in there with me while this site is more clunky than I would like. I have been extremely busy with working on The Luscious Bum Project. More updates on that coming soon.
