Sea cap beauties finally finished

After going back and painting and perfecting and trying to make the water look like water I think I can safely say that I am done painting this piece. It was very challenging but one that I knew I would throughly enjoy and I kept going back and adding more but I needed to know when to stop, I find sometimes that I am enjoying painting so much that I find it hard to let go of it – to stop. This was also the case with the “Sea cap beauties” but I am satisfied with the results!

Sitges Carnaval mini exhibit at Albert & John’s

Image

This year’s theme for Sitges carnaval was music. The carnaval was highlighting artists like “The Beatles”, Madonna, Abba (just to name a few) for their floats and their shows, so I was asked to do a mini exhibition at Albert & John’s men’s clothing shop.

Básic Barcelona where art meets urban behaviour

ImageImage

I have recently had the pleasure of discovering another gem in Barcelona. An artsy funky t-shirt store called Basic Barcelona. The owner David creates his own stencils for his t-shirts and the results are ab fab. Very urban yet distinctive, there’s a simple elegance to his designs and his prices are incredibly reasonable for what its worth.

While Basic Barcelona concentrates mostly on t-shirts and urban wear, David is an active supporter of the arts, there are hand made objects and variety of different items. Many different artists (including myself) also sell some of their latest works there. I wanted to share with you my Basic Barcelona experience…

New Art exhibition in Sitges, Barcelona

Days are passing by a little too quickly for my liking but as they say time flies when you’re having fun. I have been ill for the past two weeks, and quite busy and yes having a lot of fun too. My latest mini exhibit is now in a new bar (just opened up in my town) called KVA Sitges -which stands for Catalunya’s famous champagne like drink”cava”. The bar is quite small but has a fantastic chilled out ambiance which is what attracted me in the first place, plus the owners support the arts which is just an added bonus. If you’re ever in Sitges be sure to visit this place which also features live music on the weekends.

New exhibition @ La Bascula

Another exhibit in el Borne, BCN! La Bascula is one of the coolest restaurants I have ever been to, although I am a carnivore this vegetarian rest. really knows how to do it up. Awesome food, deserts and my fave the decor -mostly recycled stuff such as doors being used as tables. Whole bunch of antiques- books, other peoples art and just random cool stuff. Exhausted but getting there! A “Woo-hoo” is definitely in order!

The golden hour @ Sitges

I live in a small town and there’s only so many times one can walk around without seeing the same thing over and over again, I decided one late afternoon to re-discover the paradise town called Sitges and take a closer look so I started to chase  shadows (and flowers) and here is what I discovered…
