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!
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 »
This past weekend I was asked byBarkbox 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!
