Christmas in Las Vegas!

When I was about 8 years old my dad had to take a business trip to Las Vegas. I had such a fascination with the idea of seeing the incredible city and begged him to take me with him. I even offered to sit in the room all day while he worked just so that I could see the city at night. Of course, my mother didn’t seem to think leaving an 8 year old unattened in Vegas was wise.

This past week my Las Vegas dream came true! And that’s exactly what it felt like… a dream. Vegas is one of those places that seems like it has to be a lot of hype, the list of movies about the city is endless so part of me anticipated that it would be hyped up quite a bit.

It WASN’T.

It truly is as incredible as the movies portray it to be. There isn’t anyone who can say that there was nothing there for them. I made it out of the city on top and craving more of it!!! Every moment was cherished. From playing Black Jack until 6:30am,  eating the most unique flavors of jelly beans, walking along the strip, spending time with family, seeing the shows… the lights…the excitement…  PURE MAGIC.

Art Basel Showcase

Art Basel- My first experience

What a whirlwind! I still can’t believe I pulled off getting ready for an art show in a matter of days. A week ago I was wishing I could be involved in an Art Basel event. Now, one short week later, with aching feet and a pounding head…. I could not be more content from showcasing during this exciting time I thought was impossible to be apart of in any way. Life is so unpredictable!!! On Monday, I was invited to be apart of the event and on Friday I partook in my 4th ever art show. This event was a small step towards where I wanna be but it was a step nonetheless! To be associated with one of the largest art shows is the beginning of all I hope to accomplish. I am grateful for all my supporters and buyers that have taken this journey with me.

Coconuts and Corvettes

I recently made the best of some bad luck by having little fun. A coconut fell out of a palm tree and shattered the back windshield of my car! I can’t make this stuff up… Only me and only in Miami! Being distraught over the situation I decided to turn this unlucky event into a positive experience. I rented a 2015 Corvette Stingray to ease the pain of the coconuts damage. All my worries soared away the moment that convertible top went down.

Here are some photos of a model I shot with the car in Wynwood, Miami.

Betrothed to roses

Roses betrothed to her bedside

They cling to one another for existence

Wilted blossoms-

Bowing flowers ring out melodies of sorrow

Her heart keeps time

Enchanting aromas dance through the air

Both beauties mourn for the other

Stripped of purpose – peddles drop

In the end every rose fades…

Call her rose tonight
