Our old friend

For those of you in the NYC area, please don't miss the exhibit of Arthur Pinajian's unique abstractions.
This exhibit is produced by Rediscovered Masters and is in the landmark Fuller Building on the 5th floor, at 41 E. 57th St., New York (on the NE corner of Madison Avenue). Art Pinajian was once a close friend to our family. He's gone now, but his art lives on. You can learn more about this gentle soul and dynamic artist here.

new art, these paintings available for purchase!

I KNOW, I've been off the grid for quite some time. The good news is I've been painting a lot. And the bad news?!?...well, there isn't any!!!  In fact, I'm turning out Happy Art, and doing the happy dance too.

And now, I'm loading up my (sister's) car (for the LaVigna Girls annual road trip) and heading to Santa Fe to soak up my yearly dose of rabbit brush (oh yeah), incredible mesa views (WOW), Art (inspiring), jewelry (BIG), and 'as-many-as-I-can-get-my-hands-on' of the best cinnamon rolls the world over (I'm sure, @ Sage Bakehouse).

IN CELEBRATION OF MY TRIP the following four still life paintings, measuring 8x10 (acrylic on canvas board) are available for purchase! And I am practically giving them away at only Fifty Bucks* each (big grin). These paintings are fresh off my easel, ready to be framed (they also look great unframed) So, if you see something you like give me a shout! I will let you know if it is still available; it's easy/smeasy to make it a done deal. Please email me: (paintings below SOLD) and put "I want to buy a painting" in the subject area. I will reply when I come back from my trip.

Hope you LOVE my Happy Art and that it does its job by making you happier just by look'in at it. *10% of all my sales go to International Child Art Foundation which you can read about here>

I was looking for a little humor today, and these character girls, straight out of my arsenal, did the trick. They are silly, yet they are gorgeous. They are perfectly imperfect, just like we all are. Their style, their way with scarves, makes them tres chic. Smiles on me today!

Lately I've been so curious about the pottery that Picasso did in the 30's and 40's. Here are some fine examples. I've heard it said that there are still many of these pieces out there in the world that have not been accounted for. So if you think you see something 'oddly' Picasso'ish' at the flea or thrift, nab it! It could be the real thing.
Love the grey and charcoal colors, this Grecian type urn has personality.
You can learn more about it here.
I guess I'm partial for the pieces he did with faces. Check the details here.
A gorgeous plate. From the Denis Bloch blog, here.

I'm smitten with the goat vase lower right corner and the still life plate upper left, charming. Imaginary and fun all, learn more here.

I've been gone from blogville for too long! So, here's some goodness I've shot up recently. A few simple things (rocks, industrial glass, and slate) that have caught my eye in the world...
