Greetings from Las Vegas Photos

In case you missed “Greetings from Las Vegas” at Gateway early December 2013. I posting some images of my room. I made bedsheets out of recycled plastic bags that I ironed the bags together and painted love letters on them. The television had hand-drawn animation playing on the old television.

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

-Carl Sagan

back in the studio, what there’s a desk in here?

 I have been spending the past week back in Vegas.  It’s nice I have been having uninterrupted time, to spend on my work.  The weather has been burning hot, but not completely unbearable due to the breeze (sneeze).  Take breaks in between.

I have to figure out vimeo and it’s uploading video with blank -black screens.  I’m not very good at converting and understanding how computers read formats, mpegs, 3vgs, mov???? what? uhg. huh? hmmmmm…

typing becoming dull, I’d rather sharpen a pencil and write it down.  Bye. -C
