throwback to the super fun family Valentine's dance i helped to throw with two other amazing ladies at my daughter's school last weekend. being a Mom and PTA vice prez are my most favorite jobs I hold down. ✨💪🏼

happy Valentine's Day to the most tremendous weirdo, the love of my life @wizarddust ❤️❤️❤️💗💗💗⚡️⚡️⚡️✨

just a few of the pretties. lots of bunches left, but they're going fast. Here until 7pm. #studioposy

2) loads of brand spanking fresh new terrariums available @samla_shop / Studio Posy for Valentine's Day. perfect gift for your girl/dude/best friend/favorite teacher, etc. get em while they're hot 🌿⚡️

lots of announcements! 1) tomorrow night i am stoked to be sponsoring @flickitfridays super fun gallentine's event @narocinema along with some other rad lady- owned businesses. join us at 7:15 for a screening of 'Thelma and Louise.' There will be champagne and door prizes (including a 'Thelma and Louise' themed terrarium by yours truly ❤️)

(pardon me, i've been to my church, and wish to exalt my gods) this is a piece by Kandinsky, and he is a true master. my love for him was first brought forth by my master/mentor/professor Dr. Halide Salam. A brilliant painter in her own right, I was lucky to be her office assistant during my undergrad. she also happens to be a badass feminist Muslim woman. But I concur: Kandinsky was a prophet; everyone should read 'Concerning the Spiritual in Art.' In a nutshell- If you are an authentic artist, be it creating art through music, skateboarding (Kandinsky didn't say that, but I did), painting, etc.,anything that comes from an internal necessity/drive, you are part of an upward moving pyramid that is Always proceeding into the future. just keep making true art, and you will reach the apex. this shall usher in a new reality/ future for tomorrow. even back then, just as it is now, this will be a radical new way to see reality. just keep music- making, art-making, skateboarding into the future, and the truest of the true shall reclaim tomorrow as their own ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿#artsaveslives

and this piece painted in 1967 by faith ringgold. 'American People Series #20: Die.' life just keeps repeating itself. when are we going to all wake up and fucking do something??? #blacklivesmatter

always a hopeful/frivolous/comforting piece to gaze upon. matisse/ 'dance' -true works of art are always and forever in the process of 'becoming.' this joyous dance has such beautiful, perfect energy and shall move in peaceful circles forever, i hope. we need works like this just as much now as we ever have. art shines the brightest light in the darkest corners of our humanity/existence.
