Cool Blue Walls For Thick Skin Podcast

I think we’re all experiencing a roller coaster of emotions during this quarantine. I know I sure am! I’m trying to stay sane by staying at home, working on some art, and painting walls! My boyfriend has a great podcast called Thick Skin which he records underneath our swimming pool. He wanted me to paint something cool on the walls as if it were underwater. I headed to Home Depot and picked out 3 pretty blues that match the tiles in the ceiling window looking into the pool. I think it turned out pretty awesome, after a long week of sweat and pain to get it just the way I wanted. Sometimes I really think I know what I’m doing then it turns out I really don’t- but that’s OK. I took a step back, figured out what I needed to do to make it right, and continued on.

Hand-Painted Plant Pots by Pau!

During the quarantine, I’ve been feeling creative and trying new things.

I love taking care of my plants and always looking for cute pots for them.

That’s when I thought, why not paint my own?

So far I’ve made Mountain Majesty pots in different colors, and a Spot Pot

with funky colors. I’ll be posting more designs within the next few weeks,

plus photos of upcoming art projects I’ll be working on.

Stay Safe out there and remember to wash those hands!

Purple Mountains Majesty

This past week I had the most fun project with one of my best friends!

Jenny lives on the west side of LA and has a very boho, spiritual vibe

going on in her home. She wanted to paint something cool in her bedroom

but not have anything too busy. We thought about a few different ideas

until we came up with a mountain majesty scene in different shades of mauve. I’ve done

something similar before so I knew I could make it look right. It took me half a day

(and half a bottle of wine!) to get the first base done. The next day I drove back over

to finish up the details.

Jenny was very pleased with the final look, and so was I! It really does

look beautiful and fits Jenny’s personality perfectly.

On to the next project!

Maheta’s Dirty Desert 30!

Ten of us girls headed out to Palm Springs to celebrate my very dear and long time friend Helena Tamargo. She’s my favorite little firecracker and is a sister to me, so I’m glad I was able to go!  Some of the girls I’ve known for years, others I’ve met only once or twice, and the rest I met for the first time. It was an interesting mix of fun, hard-working ladies who all had a common interest of letting loose for the weekend. Helena’s friend Melody brought us all the cutest goodie bags filled with face masks, aspirin in case of any hangover, makeup, snacks, face wipes, and anything else we would probably need for the few days we were there. The house was absolutely beautiful, big props to Helena for finding and booking it! It was decorated super retro style which gave us the ultimate Palm Springs vibe. We had the amazing Alyssa help serve us all the most incredible meals-deliciously displayed, good enough for the best restaurant in town (she’s a professional food stylist)! Dimirra brought her expensive camera and took some beautiful pictures. Christina, Helenas’s sister, had me laughing the entire trip and it was good to spend time with her too. Sasha did mushrooms for the first time so that alone is awesome. She had a very deep, positive experience that she’ll always remember!

Helena is my girl and always will be. LOVE YOU BOO! Thanks for the good times, always!

Where to next? 🙂

Breakfast by Salt’s Cure

If you’ve tried the food at Salt’s Cure, you know it’s good! They opened a restaurant called BREAKFAST, and their griddle cakes are pretty ridiculous. They hired me to paint over the side entry walls with a new, clean hand-painted sign.

I’m happy with the way it came out!

San Jose/Napa Valley!

I had the chance to fly up to San Jose to assist the very talented Morgan Bricca, Muralist Extraordinaire! She really was the sweetest, and was so open about her experiences as an Artist. I appreciate the time I got to spend with her.. She’s a special soul who continues to grow everyday and has such a great attitude towards life. What a blessing! She set me up with her neighbor, Anh, a vietnamese hairstylist with a gorgeous Airbnb. Anh and her husband made me feel at home, inviting me to meals and wine..top notch hospitality! Take a look at some photos I took of her property. They have a chicken coop, bee hives, a tennis court, pool, and a bicycle she lent me to ride around town whenever I needed!

Birthday in Cabo!

cabo

For my 30th birthday, we headed down to Cabo!

It was such a fun time..plenty of drinks, food, and sun. We stayed at the Pacifica Pueblo Bonito Resort – one of three sister resorts. We were able to visit all of them and each had a different vibe. Pacifica is definitely the most high-end, but Rosa was old school Mexico with lounge chairs on the beach and waiters at your service! The beach was perfect, exactly what you would expect laying on the sand with a view of the teal blue water. We took a walk and found a restaurant called the Office, which turned out to be the best Mexican food spot we could find! It had the freshest seafood, tastiest guacamole, and also served us cold coronas in a bucket of ice.  You can’t beat the ambiance there either! Party Central!

I highly recommend this resort for anyone wanting a lot of R&R! There was plenty to do from riding ATVs and whale watching, to Parasailing and snorkeling. I hit the spa for a massage and facial, which was super awesome and much-needed! 🙂 The food was excellent and the customer service was top notch. It was a blast and cannot wait to visit again!

Take a look at some pictures I took! Continue Reading »

Brain Art Auction

I was asked to include a piece for the Chiari Brain Malformation Art auction; an event to help raise money for research of Chiari Malformation. I jumped on it and created a colorful canvas, inspired by the vintage textbook anatomy of the brain. I love the “old-timey” words we rarely use these days and I’ll admit I had to look some of them up in the dictionary. I added a RESET button to give the painting a modern feel, as we are living on the cusp of robotic humans taking over, in my opinion. I named this A Healthy Brain.

It was sad to say goodbye when my baby was auctioned off, but it was for a good cause. For that, I’m grateful to have been able to help people with this condition.

Here are some photos of the process of beginning to end- which took me a couple of days: Continue Reading »

BarkBox Event!

barkbox

This past weekend I was asked by Barkbox to draw pet portraits in Manhattan Beach! It was so fun meeting everyone and to support such an awesome company! I took about 25 min for each dog and used photos because my models don’t know how to sit still very well 🙂

Barkbox just launched their first book called Dogs and their People – a collaboration of stories, anecdotes, and photos for all Dog Lovers. Check it out in the link above!
