WOW! Magazine Shoot, Gallery Set-up & Event Meeting all Today

Hello All!

I have had a crazy busy day. Town Square Magazine is doing an ongoing feature on me, my art, and art event planning over the next few issues. They want to follow me, as an artist living in downtown Dallas, over the next few months and watch my progress. It's very exciting. I feel very fortunate. This morning Matt, from the mag, came over for a quick photo shoot for the June issue and will be finishing up the interview tomorrow. There's nothing like rushing at last minute to get the energy flowing, it's very exciting! After the shoot was finished, I went to Studio Fling Gallery to get the contracts signed and started hanging my art. I was able to get the space I wanted and now have more room to hang my favorite painting, so far, Green Peace. I am displaying it this weekend and my next art event Saturday May 31, 2008, then it will go up in the gallery. It will look awesome hanging on that wall in the gallery. The last and final appointment for the day, besides helping my friend out, was a final walk through at Club Dada for the Art Event, Deep Culture, Saturday. That went really smoothly, and we headed out for a bite afterwards at the City Tavern. One last thing to do is get everything prepared for tomorrow in the studio. I will be painting all day getting some small pieces ready for the Art Show. Looking forward to a fantastic weekend and Art Show. Until next time... ciao

Wow! What a week

Hello Everyone

This has been a crazy and busy week. First, I dropped by Studio Fling last Wednesday to show them some of my pieces and sort out the details of the contract. it was a success, I was bring my art by to hang and sign the contract on May 21 or 22. I ended up stopping by on Thursday the 22 with a few pieces and will go by Tuesday the 27th to bring the rest and sign the contract.

The show last Thursday was good. It was a nice conclusion to the loft parties. My weekend trip to visit the family for my grandmother's 90th birthday went well. Upon my return, I had a meeting with Alex from Town Square Magazine on Tuesday at Club Dada with the other directors and some of the talent about the upcoming event this coming Saturday May 31. Gene, an artist that will be in the show, and I went over everything for the show and walked back home from Deep Ellum. It was a very informative meeting. We'll have one more this week before the show. The event is called Deep Culture and it looks to be a great start to a wonderful summer. Check out Galleria Lisa for a schedule of all the Deep Culture Events and my other upcoming shows. Until next time...have a fantastic day! ciao

Getting Ready for Thursday's Show!


Today has been a busy day. To begin with, I started preparing for the show Thursday May 15, at the Mosaic. I decided to start bringing some of my art over to my space today. That way I wouldn't have so much to do on Thursday. I will go by Studio Fling Gallery tomorrow to talk with them about displaying my work, then finish taking the rest of my art to the Mosaic. I'll keep you posted on when I will be in the Gallery. I, also, took 2 internet marketing classes for my websites. Then, I've been updating Galleria Lisa this evening, as well. It is really looking nice. I have added most of my newer pieces and added more content. Stop by and check it out! Let me know what you think. Wow, I'm exhausted! Off to bed, for a busy day tomorrow...ciao

Today was Kind of Quiet

Hello Everyone!

Today has been a fairly laid back day. I stopped by the Mosaic Lofts Building (300 N Ackard Dallas, TX 75202) to check out the loft for my upcoming show on Thursday, May 15. It is a great space near the elevator with a nice sized balcony. My art will look great in the loft. This event is going to be a great finally. Hope to see as many of you living in the Dallas, TX area there. As for everyone else, I will be adding a little photo thing to the blog, so no one feels left out. I have spoken with some of the other artists that I am getting involved with the big Art Show at the end of the month, and everyone is very excited. As things are moving along, I will keep everyone posted through this blog. Until next time...have a fantastic day!

Meeting With Alex from the Magazine!


I had my first meeting with Alex from Town Square Magazine about the upcoming events through out the summer. We met a local club called Club Dada. The entire club and surrounding areas in Deep Ellum. The Art/Cultural events will be the last Saturday of the next 4 months. We, then, went to 3 Art Gallery openings and I met the owners of 2. I also met and art rep at the 3rd gallery. I have a meeting with Studio Fling next week and the art rep is going to come by my show at the Mosaic next Thursday night. All in all the night was very eventful and beneficial. You never know who you are going to meet. I love that!! More info on the May 31st event later. For now, I'm busy preparing for next Thursday. If you're in Dallas...see you there!

Preparing for My Next Event!


Today has been a pretty laid back day. I have just been preparing for my next event. It is next Thursday night and the Mosaic in downtown Dallas. It is their big spring final floor party. The turn out is expected to be fantastic. I am meeting with Donna tomorrow to go over my space. I am very excited about it. It is including many more floors, vendors and guests than any other floor party they have put on. I am also meeting with Alex from Town Square Magazine tomorrow night at Club Dada to do a walk through for a area wide Art Show and event that the magazine is doing and I am participating it as well as doing some art direction for the entire event. I am thrilled to be apart of it. This event and many others throughout the summer is why I postponed my LA move. I am working on the website and MySpace, as well as, starting a Facebook page. Check back and I'll let you know when it's finished. Everyone, have a spectacular day! CIAO

In the Studio Today!

Hello Everyone!

I got up this morning at 6:30, rolled out of be around 6:45 and meditated, worked out and headed to the studio to work on my next piece "Saphire Snow". I worked on it for around 3 and half hours and ran out of paint supplies. I was able to finish stage 2 of the peice before running out. That worked out, as it needs to dry for a few days before I move to the third stage. I will have this piece ready for the event at the end of the month. It's quite large, and actually the largest I have done in the Snow/Crush style. It's really looking good thus far. Well, off to order paint. Until next time..... ciao

Hello Everyone!

Well just finished the Davis Buildings Art Show last night. It was a great success. The turn out was wonderful, the band was great, and the art was amazing. Hal Samples and Jesse Cole's art, along with mine, was featured. The old KUL space looked fantastic. Well, I'm back in the studio tomorrow to work on my next spectacular art explosion. Can't wait for you to see it! Until next time, have a fantastic day.
