Feeling the Love...

As we all know, February is Black History Month and there are so many powerful events to honor the triumphs and struggles of generations of African Americans throughout US history. So much and so many to remember and revere…

For many people this month is also about love and Valentine’s Day, which has permeated the world… Love and friendship are celebrated these days in more countries and places… And once again, I find myself thinking how we can make this type of celebration more about their meaning and less about the consumption of stuff; for example, not buying balloons that will end up contaminating our oceans, or other products made of or wrapped in plastics… Making V-Day and our lives about our love for the Planet!

Thank you for your comments, Helena! It has been really busy but I am very excited about all the news and what our group is doing. As you know very well it is hard work to be an artist but connecting to others, artists and exhibits visitors, is really rewarding… Thanks for your ongoing support and ❤️! Adriana

Beautiful painting! I see a figure and so much more in it. I am glad you are having so many opportunities to show and I wish you the very best of luck with all of your artistic endeavors. I see that working as a curator for i3C is also working very well for you!
