My afternoon started with a cheerful, 3 block walk to a modern home on Page Street in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco. I completed a commissioned chalk drawing on a chalkboard painted wall in the kitchen for a home sale staging. She wanted a graphic white classic bouquet in a frame. I love my work.
During his first painting lesson, I asked him to first think about what he would like to paint. Without hesitation, he said “my DnD character”. (who happens to be a half dragon sorcerer)
We looked at komodo dragons for reference first. There was lots of pencil drawing and erasing of shapes to get the proportions right, and then the painting began. Good times! xxoo Yabette
This is a photo of cash from recent art sales. I know my art is a good investment. I am paying bills as an artist in the face of the status quo which says that is not possible. I am posting this with two intentions: to inspire more investors and to inspire other artists who might experience a voice that says to give it up.
Don’t listen to the prison matrix brainwashing that pulls you away from your true self.
And to investors and collectors, you don’t have to take my word for it- here’s what others have said about my creative labors.
“I love your work. God lets me take a picture, but he lets you create one.” Chuck: Dania, FL
“You make wonderful, unique artwork. I love the colors and detail!” Cathie: Fallon, NV
“I just wanted to let you know that I received the painting today & it is even more beautiful than I had expected. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to have such a tremendous piece of art! Take good care.” Shab: Phoenix, AZ
“I just got the paintings for the kids room and I am so glad my designer referred me to your work. We love them!” Susan: Hampton, NY
PS: If you need help “making it rain” I suggest Kate’s Money Love Webinars. So good.
During one of my summer sewing workshops, these 2 middle school girls constructed their own maxi dresses from tank tops and favorite fabric. When finished, there was an immediate impromptu fashion photo shoot!
May your summer be delightful with creations and friendship as well! xxoo Yabette

Another stretch, (besides stories of painted characters) from my last show Jubilieu was achieved with painting states of being as abstract art. Using texture, shape and color, I finished two large scale pieces. Happy Art Expressions to you this weekend! xxoo Yabette
There are many characters of Jubilieu with stories to finish, but the satisfaction of seeing the first one complete from imagination to entertainment reality is quite satisfying.
And even better, come to the reception and hear judy-b read them aloud!
Until then, you can get a preview here.
May the artistic exploratory stretching continue! xxoo Yabette
