my art crush is in town.

monica canilao's 'we are dust' opens tomorrow night !!!!!!

as you dear readers know, i've been crushing out on monica's magical creations and her mystical mama ways for over a year now... so obviously, i'm MORE than completely-totally-radically-jazzed to finally get to see and experience her work in person..i anticipate feeling incredibly inspired (and mired with guilt that i'm not painting enough) as soon as i walk into the space.
[full disclosure-i plan to profess my artcrushlove to her at the opening but in reality, i'll likely feel a bit shy about actually doing it when the moment comes..(currently considering that perhaps some feathers and bourbon will help)...]

anyhoo-see you there!

oh and...
here are a few pictures of monica prepping for the show at her studio in oakland, california..
for those of you who've been to my painting studio-you know i can relate to this overwhelming life collage.

i won't be mad if you buy me a fancy rainbow.

7.1. grant hamilton. i love his work but i especially want these on my walls.
2. new nars multiples..the fuchsia is even named after last summers fave spot-cadaques! anyhoo, i'll take all three!
3. karla spetic combo cardi.
4. charlotte olympia lady platforms..these would be so genius for summer.
5. karen walker. another pair of perfect.
6. apiece apart blazer in such a great green.
7. josef albers nesting tables..these would be so perfect in our apartment.

and in addition..

perhaps these lime crime i crazy to think i might really wear that blue? okay, maybe.. but the the orange or the nude-ish color is kinda yes!

(so this one time, i had to sign a release for my fotos to be on celebrity apprentice..)

no big's..
it just my gal lisa (looking mighty-fine-as-always on her primetime debut!) and the (apparently-not-as-nice-as-she-should-be) ms. cyndi lauper shopping at court, with some of my tangled up in blue scene in the background.

p.s. i tried to make this a gif but after hours of uploading+resulting errors, they didn't work sorry but you'll just have to scroll really fast+use your imagination:)

¡Olé! is a great way to spend a saturday.

our first themed potluck was a smash success..full of flowery hair+flamenco inspired flair. though yet again (really becoming a habit-oops), i was having too much fun (+cava sangria) to document the evening..but we sure had a blast.

everyone brought something absolutely delicious to eat-handmade chorizo by ben, quail egg chorizo bites by sam+patrick, fried balls of delight by cedez, meat cakes by katie, ceviche by adam+claire, chocolate bites by angela, ice cream sandwiches by elizabeth, serrano wrapped asparagus+vegan dip by turner, citrus rice by george+dana, a chickpea pleasantry by chris+rachel, and mi senor whipped up a few delectable tapas including homemade tortilla, pinxto atun, croquetas y pan tumaca..while i love eating food, i am certainly not known for my kitchen, instead of whipping up a tapa, i focused all my energy into fashioning a cava sangria. (which i'd say was received very well+is certain to be on many menus to come!)

muchas gracias are undeniably the best.
