What I now come to terms these few months, is that art and community must work hand and hand, and proving a Strong sense of love through the message of our creations, point blank.
I had the intentions of painting over two old paintings, and was stopped by RED CLAY WOMAN aka Reina Miranda .. the poetess, painter, and all around DYNAMIC soul... who provided me a delicious sized canvas, to help me continue my art for the night! I love her so much for being so loving, for understanding how much it cost us to continue what we love to do. ( if more gigs did the same, I paint for life ha ha ha ha).
* I gets ready now, looking at the people gathering around, ordering their dranks dranks, and then I saw Sandra Guzman.. " I know you from some where,.. " was my next words, as she approached me with a big smile... yes yes, CAPICU in Brooklyn and FACEBOOK amigitas.. never really saw or talked to her in person, and talking to her, realized she is a crazy cool cat! Bless to these networks.
AMAZING lady, mom, and photographer Laurie Marklewics was in the house! have a ton of love for her sight, her vision... she was also taking some pics there...
* Setting up now: and I get started.... the place got crowed so fast in such a short time! And then, La Bruja entered the scene, and also Pappo from CAPICU. From here, the Open mic starts, and Pappo bless the mic, saying a few words to Divino, then the show gets even hotter! By this time, I have already finished, and saw a glimpse of La Bruja, as I hold high the painting for her to see from far way, and gesturing Divino I had to go to the very soon. I was called to be upfront of the stage, with them, and I was so nervous, because la Bruja was there.. and they loved the painting. She shuck my hand and smiled and said to me, " I love it". More photos were taken, and there was a point that I really had to leave. I hugged as many people I could and waved good by. packed my bag and out the door I was, encountering Tasty Keish .
