A year ago at this time I participated in my first art drop, randomly placing small works of my art around the city to be found. I had so much fun with the art drop last time, I decided to do another one. On my birthday, carrying 4 small paintings, I scampered around the city of Philadelphia, leaving my art behind.. This day I felt like a tourist in my own city.
Places I visited:
Schuylkill River Trail, Boat House Row , Edgar Allen Poe House
If you ever plan to visit Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, here is some fun information about things to do in the city.

Thanks for visiting!!
Recently discovered a watercolor painting I created in my teens. The old photograph I referenced to paint this portrait is still in my possession. The photo is my favorite because we looked like we were happy, and having good old fashion fun. Luckily my sister doesn’t read my blog or she might object to showcasing this painting. Anyway, I love how we looked and probably how we felt at this age ( 4 & 7?), we were goofy kids without a care in the world. Those days were magical, by that I mean, we lived without limitations, lived fully, lived without body issues, lived for play and loved fully (and fought fully). Some days felt like time would stand still. Looking back helped me to realize what I need in the present day. My time should be spent living fully in the moment, do what I love daily, always keep a sense of wonder, love deeply and maybe dance silly wearing a swim float occasionally just to keep things real! Oh the memories!
Dedicated to my lovely, talented bossy little sister, who will always be my best friend. The original singing and dancing Libra’s!

The process of cleaning and organizing my art space helped to unearth inspiration from previously created drawings. The dust cleared and the wheels began to turn, and the urge to work on multiple projects began. My creative blocks tumbled and crumbled in an instant…. I envision more cleaning in my future!
Reused material and art: Cardboard cover of book, pen sketch, puffed paint, clear matte medium and a bit of dust!
Crazy days, we work hard to keep balance only to feel like a juggling fool…..
Stop clowning around and go with the flow!

Exploring the city on foot.
Looking up, the beams on this building seem fit for climbing. Sign appropriate.
The eye catching New Museum, with its unique modern exterior is sandwiched between a neighborhood full of aged buildings. This building is home to new contemporary art, located in lower Manhattan.
The nights are always ablaze.
Inspiration can be found anywhere if you dare to stop and notice…

Straddle the invisible line of reality
step on over to where anything goes
where non-boring is a necessity in the common place
happily not to commit to a serious relationship with the hours
everything is and will not be what it seems
creating a place where fun exists and laughter soars
all in a days work
