Update: Live painting

Two weeks ago, I did my first Live Painting for Japan-aid at Blackbird Studios.  I loved the experience Live-Painting, definitely a different experience than painting in my studio.

Best part is that the proceeds when to help Japan!  Here’s some photos from the event. -Cristina

The piece was of mother nature and the galaxies, inspired by my favorite Carl Sagan quotes.

” We are made of star stuff.”

“You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.” – from  Contact

I love Gesso!

I love Gesso.  Finding it the cheapest way to produce work these days is through using canvas and gesso.
