I love every aspect of this image of the bride, in her gorgeous dress, with a glowing smile! She is the quintessential image of a wedding!

One of the commissions that I recently finished was of my client Nicole's grandfather. Shortly after his death she contacted me to ask if I could do a piece that would commemorate her love for him. The connection that Nicole had to her grandfather was palpable, and it was so much more than an honor to have been trusted with such a touching portrait. Thank you so much Nicole, for sending me pics of the piece in it's home!!!

September Artist at p!ay
I have really had mush for brains for the past week 2 weeks or so! I am so scattered all over the house and everything is a mess! I completely neglected to blog about my pieces being on display for the month of September at p!ay Hair Lounge in Simi Valley, CA.
Let me tell you a little bit about p!ay. Depending on how often you read this blog you may have heard me talk about the über-talented Miss Brig who was responsible for my blond-ness, and more recently my, my brunettey-ness. She is so good at what she does that I only have to say a sentence or 2, and I am all set. This is the easiest my hair has EVER been, and I have some annoying hair, so that says A LOT!
About a year ago Brig opened her own salon taking a fresh approach to the boring old salons. Each station has personalized Barbie that represents the stylist who calls that spot home. (This one's Brig!)
Everything about the place is personable and awesome. No wonder it is a wild success! All of the stylists in the joint are totally funky fresh, and at the tippy top of their game. Every time I am there the place is jumping. Because Brigs approach to her business is so new and fresh, she and the folks over at Bumble and Bumble are BFF's, so much so that they just flew Miss. Brig out to the B&B Headquarters in NYC to give a speech. She is just too much!
What was my point. . . . oh yeah, so, I am the featured "Artist Every Month" for September. Every month there will be something new and cool hanging in this area. It is lots of fun to check out the newest installation while your head is wrapped in foil! If your in the area, get over there and check out p!ay!

A quick THANK YOU to everyone who came out last night to check out the show! I am always so nervous at these events and I had a really great time! The feedback was super positive which made my leap out of my "portrait box" a lot easier! (duh, right!) Sometimes you just need to stand in a room with complete strangers and hear a nice comment to feel like all is well with the final outcome!
I want to make sure to say a HUGE thank you to Kelly, owner and genius behind Regeneration, for all of her kindness and support! I am really flattered and proud to have been asked to hang in your lovely shop!!!
The totally awesomely talented CJ Metzger came out to see the show and I am so honored that she decided to add this piece to her personal collection. The surprise bonus of the night is this picture, of CJ with antlers. When I put the camera card in the reader and this popped up, I laughed out loud. It is kismet!! I love it! Thank you CJ!
