3-D Walls

The start of a new piece.  Not sure where I'm going with it but that's the fun part.

Also not sure which way I like it better - vertical or horizontal.

One things for sure, there will be a statue or something else standing in front of this wall.

Bettye Lavette

I first heard Bettye sing at Obama's inaugural ceremonies with Jon Bon Jovi.  They sang "Change Is Gonna Come" and the emotion brought me to tears.

Here's the clip in case you missed it:
Bettye LaVette & Jon Bon Jovi

We saw Bettye perform at a free concert in Pasadena over the weekend.  That raspy soulful voice is a pleasure to my ears.  Love this lady!

Dim Sum and Then Some Shopping Fun

We ventured off to Chinatown for Nancy's birthday.  Had dim sum at Ocean then shopped around and bought parasols and kimonos.  Such a fun day.

Vince was there too but he was the "paparazzi" and didn't get in to any of the photos.

"Our Legacy" Recording Day

It's a great feeling at the end of the recording day when you're celebrating a job well done.  Our actors rocked this session!

Audrey - A happy rescue story

I have fallen head over heels in love with Nancy's new dog, Audrey.  It's amazing the love and smiles this dog brings wherever she goes.  I can hardly believe this little fur ball was found on the street all gnatty and scared. I've got to give it up for the rescue group that took her out of the pound, cleaned her up and saved her life. She will now spend the rest of her life being pampered and loved by Nancy and all who lay eyes on her.  This dog seriously puts a smile on your face.  Nancy has had her for about three months.  She's definitely feeling like the luckiest girl in the world.  This is a very happy rescue story - yay!

Beauty Culture at the Annenberg Photography Center

I swear this should be illegal.  Vince had it right when he said he'd like to see an interview of a grown up woman who was put through this when they were young.  Would love to see how it affected them in their older years.  My guess is it wouldn't be pretty....
