“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again.”

—     F. Scott Fitzgerald (via fckrt)

An open call to action to ALL artists everywhere! 
Announcing WORLD ART DROP DAY on September 2nd
All artists, (that means students and professionals, painters and cartoonists, sculptors and illustrators, animators and fine artists, EVERYONE who creates) this September 2nd is World Art Drop Day. Wherever you find yourself that day, drop a piece of your art and tell someone where to find it. The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there’s nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.
I recently just finished a cross-country art drop this summer and it was exhilarating. The emails and responses I received from the finders ran the gamut of funny to touching. I want that for everyone!
Here’s how it works:
Draw a picture and hide it somewhere.
Take a photo of either the art or the hiding spot or a combination of both.
Post the image, the city you dropped it in, and a hint on any social media of your choice. Be sure to included the hashtag: #artdropday
Then move on, hoping someone finds it. OR hang around and meet your new friend.
That’s it!
I need your help spreading the word on this. Reblog it, retweet it, facebook it, or even tell someone in person!
September 2nd, lets connect the whole planet with art!

Such a great idea—definitely will be doing this one!

Panini for lunch. French bread, prosciutto, slices of apple, Brie, arugula, drizzle olive oil and little bit of balsamic. Add salt and pepper if you like.

First day drawing figures! I’m excited and hoping I will get better at these gesture drawings.

Lunch snack
My breath be kickin! 

Yummy but a little disappointed. 1) whole wheat bagel…YUCK.  2)non-fat cream cheese, no flava! :(
Trying to paint in watercolor :-/. Still need practice

Roasted vegetables. Tossed the vegetables in EVOO and lemon with salt and pepper. Roasted in 400 degrees oven for 30 minutes with rosemary and garlic. Served with a side of basil pesto.

My favorite: caprese.

Went a little overboard with my presentation haha. How can you not tho? They’re colorful and they look cute.
