I had such a fun night yesterday with my friend & #muse @therealkimle. Here's an #oilpainting of her I made on one of our other fun adventures this time at the @frickcollection. #AnnikaConnor #paintingsforsale

Tales from The Edge of Insomnia:
My brain was whirling and I was unable to sleep last night.
I was up late in the studio trying to figure out how to turn digital code into poetry for a new oil painting.

Finally well after 3am my mind decides to give me a break and I fall into a deep sleep.
This morning my alarm buzzes loudly. I roll over eyes closed to shut it off planning to get up.
As I turn I see another version of myself holding a gun pointed straight at me.
Gun wielding Annika says in a forceful voice "don't you dare. Back to bed missy." So I obey, hit snooze and promptly I start dreaming that I found two adorable puppies.
The next time the alarm goes off another version of Annika is there on the other side of the bed. She leans over me and says "be careful, she's angry in the morning and she's got a gun." Listening to the advice, I approach cautiously and quickly hit snooze again.
The third time I wake up I am late (of course). No time for gun wielding visions or cautionary tales from various versions of myself. I bolt out of bed and rush to get dressed.
Heart racing I awake, ready to start another day in New York.

So I just submitted this image and my short story that I wrote today about a bird at the grocery store to the #metropolitandiary at the @nytimes.
This is the 3rd story I have submitted this year so 🀞one of my entries makes it's way on to the pages of the paper.
Out of curiosity have any of you been published in this section before? Any advice? #annikaconnor #oilpainting #birds #metropolitandiaries

We had a big photoshoot today in my studio for a collaboration with @kevinshahroozi fashions and @kevinqassemzad video. While the pros were off shooting the models with my paintings, I found a new muse for me in the beautiful stylist @camry_akeen. What do you think art lovers? Shall I try and convince her to model for one of my paintings? #annikaconnor #inthestudio #newmuse

Ugh #subway where are you? Can't you tell I am late.... #annikaconnor #oilpainting #artistlife #late

Happy Derby Day!! Here I am with two of my favorite things, #inthestudio with a #painting playing with #hats! #derbyday #hat #AnnikaConnor #oilpainting

I am so disappointed and saddened by the choices of my countrymen and my leaders today. "In addition to rape, postpartum depression, Cesarean sections, and surviving domestic violence are all considered preexisting conditions. Companies can also deny coverage for gynecological services and mammograms." http://nymag.com/thecut/2017/05/new-healthcare-bill-ahca-sexual-assault.html @nymag #AnnikaConnor #protestart #iobject #americangreed #oilpainting #resist #iobject

I just can't America. My country men are depressing me again. This healthcare madness is insane to me. What happened to the country I love? The one that cares about the poor? The American that works to improve our world? The country that stands up for what is right? Where did you go? #trumpcare #iobject #AnnikaConnor #protestart #resist

Off to go have a coffee with the #collector who owns this #painting. #AnnikaConnor #artistlife #watercolor #sold

This is no time to be blind to what's going on. The time to holler OBJECTION is now! It sounds like Trump may have the votes to pass ACA repeal through the House TODAY. Make your voice heard on the issue ASAP. https://trumpcaretoolkit.org
