RE CAP: "Busted in Two Cities"

This show was a mega cool show! Amongst the many real developed artist, I was one of them. HONORED I was when Frankie Velez asked me almost a year ago to participate... I was like "YEA !..."

Unfortunate I have heard from him that one of his friends passed away. I was very sadden even when I never knew that guy, I did know that Frankie was a down to earth guy, who Loves art, and LOVES to work with other artist, and anyone so fortunate to know this guy, is some one mega special. In dedication of his passing, he was sole organizer of this event, and WOW, I am so proud of him, I am so proud of my Friend Frankie Velez!

The other good that came out of this positive motivated program was that my son has helped me developed this art work. He collect the dry paint, from all my paint tubes and gathered them for me. We layered the mannequin with a dark navy blue coat, to then add these dry paint gathering that my son picked up on to the piece.

*At the show in New York City, I was so excited, that I ran early to hang it up,(*long story). I was there and met up with many of my art friends. I wasnt able to stay long, but I left there feeling so glad to be apart of this mig art show! The Place was so packed when I left. Thank you Frankie !
