Last year I discovered and participated in The Sketchbook Project and I just signed up to do it again. You can see my digitized book here: My 2013 sketchbook.
The Sketchbook Project is a global, crowd-sourced art project and interactive, traveling exhibition of handmade books. Our community is made up of over 75,000 people, and our permanent collection at Brooklyn Art Library holds over 26,000 sketchbooks from 135 countries around the globe.

This workshop will help you get started on incorporating healthy habits into your daily life and reinforce those you already know. I’ll share tips to help you set goals and create successful strategies for weight loss. Part of the workshop will be a round table discussion with others who have lost 50, 75, and over 100 pounds! They will inspire you and explain how they did it. You’ll get solid, practical advice on nutrition and fitness that you can use right away. We’ll also delve into the mental and physical road blocks you may encounter and we’ll spend time helping you plan for your specific needs and lifestyle. By the end of the seminar, you’ll emerge with dozens of ideas for living a healthier lifestyle and have useful tools that cater directly to your personal situation. Space is limited!

The piano I painted for the Hopkin’s Center Hands on Piano Project is out and on the Lebanon Green! For more info and to see the other 49 pianos visit the official website. My piano is featured here.
I’m painting a piano as part of the Hopkins Center’s 50th Anniversary Hands on Pianos project.
Here’s a sneak peek of my piano “Musical Medina”.

I created this piece for a friend’s wedding. The idea is that instead of a guest book you have each of your guests put a thumb print on the tree. You then have them sign their name next to their “leaf”.
The bride loves orange so I made sure to feature that color prominently. I used colored pencils and oil paint pens to create it. I’ve been promised a photo of the final results but as you can see I’ll have to wait until the end of June. (Please pardon the image quality. It was taken through the glass of the frame with a cell phone.)
I was asked to create a 5 x 7 painting of a Peace Sign using magenta, purple, aqua, and light green. I wasn’t sure how my style and a peace sign would blend but I’m actually really pleased with the results. If you have a request, my custom 5 x 7 images are $20 and come with a frame (Shipping is extra if you aren’t local).
