Sold ‘Elvira, the Turkish Belly Dancer’ Empowerment Doll to a precious 7 year old who saved up her allowance to buy this treasure on a payment plan! The paper is a 5 day ‘countdown calendar’ she made to celebrate the days until our meeting at Starbucks when she could finally take home her doll!  It took her 5 weeks to save up enough $$.
.
.
.
This story/experience is magical to me because -
.
1. Her parents taught her to save for things she wants and cherishes.
.
2. A child could love my art so much that she would buy it with her own money!
.
3. The fact that my dolls/art provided a vehicle for me to meet this little soul sister and her family and to celebrate creativity with them:) ♥️🌸♥️.
.
4.  That this is how I spend my days - connecting, enjoying, creating, and celebrating the process. 🧚‍♂️☮️🧚‍♂️

Lynnette Yiadom Boakye @lynetteyiadomboakye paints her large scale oil paintings from her imagination. She uses scrapbooks and observation of daily life to inspire her work.

I like this as it allows the viewer to insert themselves in pictures.

It’s been an interesting week. I am usually drawn to #HappyArt but the muted tones of Lynette’s #Art seemed to be pulling me in asking me to contemplate and almost as it were brood.

A 2013 Turner Prize finalist, Lynette has established herself as one of the most renowned painters of her generation. Her figures, usually black are elegant and often depicted in a mix of melancholy and joy as if mixing those 2 emotions would bring forth a hybrid emotion, a name of which eludes one.

Ghanaian British Artist born in the #UK is also a #Writer and a #teacher lecturing at #Oxford

She works fast and likes to complete her work in one sitting typically one day

In one of her interviews, she embodies a honesty about her work. She explained that to continue working on a #painting and adding to it sometimes marred it. 
A honest day’s work. Capturing a variety of emotions, telling stories and captivating people all over the world.

We need to live in the moment. Treasure our time here. Live fully and joyfully, embracing Life.

Lynette is represented by Jack Shainman Gallery @jackshainman New York

Lynnette Yiadom Boakye @lynetteyiadomboakye paints her large scale oil paintings from her imagination. She uses scrapbooks and observation of daily life to inspire her work.

I like this as it allows the viewer to insert themselves in pictures.

It’s been an interesting week. I am usually drawn to #HappyArt but the muted tones of Lynette’s #Art seemed to be pulling me in asking me to contemplate and almost as it were brood.

A 2013 Turner Prize finalist, Lynette has established herself as one of the most renowned painters of her generation. Her figures, usually black are elegant and often depicted in a mix of melancholy and joy as if mixing those 2 emotions would bring forth a hybrid emotion, a name of which eludes one.

Ghanaian British Artist born in the #UK is also a #Writer and a #teacher lecturing at #Oxford

She works fast and likes to complete her work in one sitting typically one day

In one of her interviews, she embodies a honesty about her work. She explained that to continue working on a #painting and adding to it sometimes marred it. 
A honest day’s work. Capturing a variety of emotions, telling stories and captivating people all over the world.

We need to live in the moment. Treasure our time here. Live fully and joyfully, embracing Life.

The Danger Of A Single Story

We need to tell all stories not just the negative ones.

We need to inspire the future generations and ourselves. 
We need the #Good2Great stories about the young black man from #Philadelphia Who attended #Yale @yale for both his undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Barkley L. Hendricks was born 
April 16, 1945. He was a brilliant #Contemporary #American #Painter and #Photographer who was best known for his lifesized portraits of African Americans.

His subjects were composed, elegant, alluding to a middle class life often not depicted in American History.

Beautiful #inspirational #art showing strong Men and Women, Confident in their own skin.

They tell a story we don’t hear often. A story that should also be told alongside the stories of slavery, oppression and racism.

To know that it is possible like the #Obamas to rise and reside in #WhiteHouse despite one’s ethnicity.

I realise that this is not the story for most... that life is very difficult, that we can all do better to lift others out of poverty.

However, we need to also show that we can all rise despite the hardships and challenges. That we can have hope for a better life because there is precedence. 
We can see from Barkley’s paintings that life can be good.

Hendricks was Professor Emeritus Of Studio Art @conncollege #ConnecticutCollege from 1972 - 2010

Barkley Hendricks died April 18, 2017

Such a lovely group of bright, young adults from the North and South side of Mitrovica. Our city has so much talent!

It always amazes me to see how people are connected through heart, vibrating the same frequency and sharing the same feeling with a bigger community. 
#Tabeestoonfest2018 was all about the feeling of connection, joy and freedom. An opportunity to grab and free your mind from all the pre judgments, floating in the ocean of joy. 
Breathing fresh, and dreaming high.

It always amazes me to see how people are connected through heart, vibrating the same frequency and sharing the same feeling with a bigger community. #Tabeestoonfest2018  was all about the feeling of connection, joy and freedom.

There will be no picture of an art-drop today because the pig has flown!  He left for Indiana to be dropped on September Fourth, World Art Drop Day!

During my undergraduate days In Auchipoly I have few friends I respect so much for their mastery and display of excellence in arts. After 13 years ,  I’m so glad to meet my former course mate Steve Ekpenisi aka Steve 3:16 today @ Universal Studio. Steve is an amazing draughtsman , a skillful upcycled artist and sculptor. #AuchiPolyUnites #ArtUnites

Thank you, Nancie and Erik, for dropping art on my behalf in Madison yesterday and today. I've never been to this supper club, and that's likely a big missed steak.

Window of Hope?
Took this picture last year in #Beirut and posted it on another platform asking if this could be a #window of #hope , as #art fills the #walls of #Lebanon it is a way people can express themselves and find a #voice . Art can bring people together; see all perspectives. 
A way to #construct from the #deconstructed and for art to thrive despite the rubble. 
I hope this window has become a window of opportunity for #all #people and for art to #unite all and spread the message of #empathy and #understanding and #peace .

I once asked a bird:
"How is it that you fly in this gravity of darkness?"
She responded: "Love lifts me!" ~ Hafez
