Come By and Say Hi

Hey LA peeps- Come by and say hi! 
I’ll be at the Papyrus store in Century City Westfield mall this Saturday 1-5pm, with some sharpies in hand so that I can doodle on a card if you decide to scoop one up of mine while you’re shopping. You can also catch me at South Coast Plaza and Beverly Center in the weeks after. 
See you soon!!

Hide That Red

Throwing this Thursday back 10 years to when my baby girls were babies and I painted this piece as I was imagining what they would be like in just a few years in preschool. 
Let’s just say this painted prediction was spot on. All you new moms out there- hide that red lipstick.

Something Sweet

Wild Bluebell? English Pear & Freesia? Or perhaps Nectarine Blossom & Honey? 
Whatever it is - Anais does not ever leave home without a spritz of something sweet. 
I hear ya Anais, I am the same. I don’t walk out of my bedroom with out a lil dash of scented deliciousness on the bottom of my wrists (my personal faves are Jo Malone... Yum!)

What's A Girl To Do?

Camilla is feeling a bit indecisive and can’t decide if Monday night calls for pink or blonde? I personally like the pink - go for the pink, Camilla. 


                         
So many colors, so many options.... what's a girl to do??

Speaking of May Flowers


...Speaking of May flowers...
I recently received these 2 fun pix from someone who picked up my Spring Time counted cross stitch kit and got to stitching! Work in progress- and completed.  
I have not had a chance to complete this kit on my own - awesome to see someone else got crafty with it!  Pretty weird seeing my painting translated into cross stitch - the super fun and interesting part of the art licensing biz! Which I love.

 Work in progress-


The completed project-


The Kit-


The original art that this cross stitch kit is based on-



If you are interested in buying this kit- head over to bellapilar.com, and click on the SHOP tab, you'll find info there.  Enjoy!!

Taking It All In

Sue (a city girl with a dress for every occasion) was so amazed by the fantastic desert views- she just had to pull over and take it all in.  It's in this moment that she realized - 3000 miles later, she's not in Brooklyn anymore....

Cali Life

Since my last card post was a shout out to the city, this one here is a shout out to the desert. We all need a bit of balance- and as much as I love the the city, I sure do love floating on a flamingo floaty during a Palm Springs get away. Take a piece of Cali life home with you or gift a friend some birthday love - this one is new and out now at Papyrus .. .

Analog vs. Digital

I’m an old school painter. I’ve always painted analog. Paints, brushes, paper. 
Then yesterday a friend inspired me to walk into the Apple store and play on the iPad Pro using the Apple Pencil and Procreate. I left the store with my first lil digital illustration ever. I was feeling quite proud and inspired. 
But of course I got back to the studio and just felt this urge to recreate it... old school... with paint (and pen and pastel)...and brush... on paper. I just couldn’t help myself.

Iced Latte


My kids recently asked me “mom, how come you never finish your coffee and you always leave a little left at the bottom?”. 
Hummm... I do that, don’t I?! 
Doesn’t everybody? Maybe not. I don’t know. 
So sorry to my bottom of the cup iced latte for not ever finishing you up. I still love you.
