I started this project with no intention of rushing through it. I just wanted to let it grow at it’s own pace.. anyhoo, here’s a full shot of it .

The music.  Singer/Songwriter Nick Frey filled the barn and captured us. I loved the band smack dab in the middle of the Great Room. #legacycreativeevents #byronbarn #njart #livemusic #singersongwriter #princetonmusic #plainsboro #rusticdecor #rusticbarn

It's always fun to see my Instagram #topnine each year! I'm a little confused about the pic on the lower left, because that's the work of (now retired) Chief White House Calligrapher Pat Blair! Thanks for the compliment, IG!

Artist of the day! Cathy Chestnut hand pours these soy candles. Creating scents through experimentation of her own blends she adds healing crystals and dry herbs to add a little something extra to these delicious candles. #candles #handmade #shoplocalnj #supportnjlocal #njart #jerseyshore #monmouthcounty
Today I have reignited my desire and my NEEEEEEEED to create. I guess I’d sort of lost a little faith in myself and my ability to create. Turns out, I just needed a little jolt!

“Mirror with Birth Defects”

Charcoal on canvas panel.
“Mirror with Birth Defects” Charcoal on canvas panel.
Oh so loving the intricate details and symbolism in the work of artist @michelamartello . We have some new smaller works by Michela as part of our current exhibition, “Gilt By Association”.
This piece “Radioactive Shield” is available! DM for details or 
Email info@Parlor-gallery.com
*
Michela Martello works are humanistic, accessible, and consistently characterized by her use of symbolism. A perpetually curious and interdisciplinary artist, she brings together the traditional and contemporary influences of a variety of techniques, media, themes, and cultures to create art that achieves a universal language of aesthetics that merges centuries and crosses cultural bounds.  Pen&Brush – 2017 – ” Future is Goddess ”

What’s something you’re proud of that you didn’t think you’d accomplish recently?!
Also: ☀️ GOOD MORNING ITS 9:30 and I am now on LARGE COFFEE NUMERO DOS. ☀️ How are y’all!? 😂 I was up at 5:55AM exactly and on a train by 7:59. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I would like to celebrate that I’ve taken a train and a subway ALONE and am going to a class ALONE in thirty mins.  In the last 2yrs my mental ability to do a lot of things solo had been waning. And yet...HERE I AM AND I DID IT!!! And so I celebrate with a maple coffee while I bask in the glow of successfully traveling solo for the first time in eternity (a feat with multiple chronic illnesses! And I’m sure I’ll feel the pushback from my stupid body later in the week 😂). WORTH IT FOR THE MENTAL BOOST tho!

This great big beautiful  floral installation by Mya Frey looks so lovely in the large spaces of the Byron Barn! Her creations will look lovely in your space as well!! Book this woman! She not only gets the art of weaving nature together in ways that just seem right, she gets people too. She recognizes who someone is and can create flowers around them. A gift not to go unmentioned! #myafreyflowers #byronbarn #plainsboro #njart #art #cranburynj #princeton #princetonarts #installationart #installation #floralinstallation #florist #frederickmd #northeastartist #byroncreatives #courageoushearts #vernisage #maker

This word really used to drive me up a wall, and I used to not like to associate with it.  Now, I don’t mean I wasn’t into equality and closing pay gaps and the ideals of the movement by any means - alignment with those principles is the core of how I was raised by my mama - but I hated what so many women (and men) did with the word.  I hated when white women used it against other women who were different then they were. I hated it when men used it as a means to justify crudeness and support their patriarchal bullshit because “if the feminists can do...I can do...men’s equality!” Etc.  I hated how people used it to LIE about their position of equality but really what they meant was “only for straight white women” after awhile. It bothered me and until I could find a way to represent everyone with this word, I didn’t wanna use it - and then someone showed me the intersectional folx and I was thrilled!
In the last few years, with the push for intersectional viewpoints, LGBTQIA supporters, etc, I’m more than comfortable accepting this term and “label” now if you need to assign me one.  I truly believe in equality for ALL genders and ALL abilities and ALL races and ALL religions, and so I support intersectional feminism so fucking hard I may just explode.

I understand that as a Caucasian woman I also can * use my privilege * for good, to make way for women of colour, transgender/non-binary, disabled, immigrants.....and raise all of their voices higher than ever!!! I will stand up for, stand by you, and shine the spotlight so people can understand we have made strides but aren’t as “fair and balanced” as it may seem.

In keeping with this passionate life and political stance, I shifted my subject of artwork to include themes of equality, feminism, & LGBTQIA subjects both subtly and blatantly.

I had seen similar earrings months ago in a shop, but never got em. (Snagged these on amazon for a holiday party outfit 2wks ago lol!) I have no problem wearing this banner now.  I’ll gladly engage anyone in a patriarchal bullshit “challenge”. And I will  fist bump any females/femmes that resonate with me.
The times they are a changing, & we have the power to do it!
