city swimmers

Discovering all sorts of beauty here in Beijing, it's truly a magnificent place with incredible people, architecture, art, food & so much more...It's this fantastic blend of the ancient with the futuristic modern that makes one swoon! More to come ...

Glimmering Waters

I've been in a packing frenzy mostly, but in my free time I've been painting...I fell in love with the exhibit on Babylonian art at the Met last winter, in particular with the ancient pottery, so I put that inspiration into this pattern of black fish with phosphorescent eyes. I once went to Eilat in Israel for vacation, & I saw such fish floating about in the dark waters; truly a stunning sight!

Bound For The Orient

I'm bound for more traveling very soon, this time to the far far east...I can hardly wait! I'll be setting up studio abroad & continuing my painting/exhibiting/shipping internationally as usual.

How fabulous is this photo by my very talented cousin Mehdi Van Den Bos? Words cannot express how much I love about his work, he captures both people & nature so magically...On another note a million thanks to Deb at Bon Bon Oiseau for her beautiful post about my painting. The is feeling is incredibly mutual as I adore her gorgeous jewelery designs!!
