Save the Date

Please save the date! My Escapist solo show is rapidly approaching. It will take place on Friday July 27th, 6-8 at 1218 Heights Boulevard and will be called The Platform. As in train platform but also career platform. Think travel, departures, adventures, but also those underrated yet nevertheless magical in-between moments separating the highlights of a trip. The waiting, the anticipation, the quick coffee you enjoy before boarding an early morning train. But also think of The Platform in a different sense: getting ready to launch, a foundation for new an exciting things, a different kind of departure.

In a way, I have been building The Platform for years now, and if you’re reading this you are a part of it and I’m very thankful!

I thought it might be fun to show today’s painting in conjunction with the one I did five years ago, when I first started blogging. They go together, don’t they? I feel like I’ve come a long way! And still, this is only the beginning! Please help me celebrate on July 27th!

Sahara Dust

Houston is clouded over with a thin mist of something one might find ethereal and magical, or just plain annoying: Sahara dust! Yes, dust from Africa has actually migrated here and makes our city look foggy. The good news: its presence in the Gulf helps keep hurricane formations at bay. So you could say the Sahara dust is protecting us.

Also, there’s something quite romantic about it. Did you know, for example, that sometimes in the winter Sahara dust migrates all the way to Paris and makes the snow look slightly pink?
