Jasper Johns

Jasper Johns representing on the west coast.  So excited to be able to see his awesome work in a gallery.  He was showing prints and these bronze number pieces that are so cool.

Moving Christmas

Cuteness personified.  Matt posing with his mom and dad's new book, "Moving Christmas."


For some reason we were photo free this holiday weekend.  Maybe I was foggy because I had a cold throughout the entire holiday.  I forgot to take pictures of Mario, Curt and the boys at the Stooges festival, the dinner table at mom's house, dinner at Nancy's house, our visit to the gallery to see the Braque and Picasso the past long weekend will surely fade in to the haze of life but here's a few that we took:

A perfect day

Santa Barbara is the perfect day trip.  Especially when one of your best friends lives there and she just got a new puppy.

Introducing....Kaya, a nine week old miniature Australian Shepherd.  One of the cutest things I ever laid my eyes on. I'm in love!

Kikey Castillo Photo Shoot

Here's some behind-the-scenes pictures I took during our photo shoot/publicity film shoot that we did with Kikey Castillo.  I'll post some of Vince's still photographs once they're cleaned up and ready to be shown.

Halloween Week 2012

There's no denying it....the holidays are here!

We took a drive to the Angeles Crest Forest in search of fall colors but mostly found burned trees.  The poor mountains need a few more years of recovery after the devastating fires last year.

When we got home from the forest it was time to get ready for the party.  Let the carving begin!

Later that evening we went to Janet and Kim's costume party:

Vince went as Kim!

The next night we saw "Book of Mormon" for Mark's birthday.  It was hilarious!  My face hurt from laughing:

And then Halloween officially arrived:

Vince got several thumbs up on his carving skills from the trick or treaters:

Our neighborhood goes nuts on Halloween.  Thousands of kids are shipped to our hood for a safe place to trick or treat.  It's wild in the streets with little kids all hopped up on candy.

Even Jack in the Box made an appearance:

Laura Stickney's show at Theodore Payne Wildlife Sanctuary

We enjoyed seeing Laura's watercolors at the Theodore Payne Wildlife Sanctuary in Sun Valley where Laura is the artist in residence for 2012.

Laura is my printmaking teacher so it was nice to see her watercolors and oils.  So talented in many mediums!

Herb Ritts and Gustav Klimt at the Getty

We finally made it to the Herb Ritts show on the last day of the exhibition.  It was crowded but fun to see his photographs.

Thinking how great this would look in my living room....

We took a spin in the garden before we went home.

They even provide umbrellas for us fair skinned people.

End of Summer Fun

After two weeks of brutal heat it felt so good to go to Santa Barbara and Malibu for a weekend spent with good friends and cool ocean breezes.

Lorie and Gug rocking their new chaise lounge.  Looks comfy.

We went to Henry's Beach at sunset.  It was the first time in months that I put on a hoodie.  Loved it!

The next day we drove down the coast to Malibu for a party at Cece's house to say goodbye to our dear friend Nile El Wardani.  Today she moves to Egypt.  Gonna miss you honey!  

Cece's growing her own grapes.  I felt like I was in Italy.

Heaven on earth
