{Starry Night}

Such a long time since I last did something in my nails.
Being van Gogh one of my favorite or my favorite painter, why not try one of his work on my nails?
Starry Night was it.

Took me a lot of time to get the swirls done and for them to look decent:

  • Navy blue polish.
  • Black polish.
  • Top coat.
  • White, yellow, light blue acrylic paint.

{Cigarettes. Cigarettes.}

...but I do not smoke.
Ever since I saw a photo of a painted cigarette eons ago I have this weird fascination with them as a painting/drawing media. The only problem being: I do not smoke therefor I couldn't get my hands on a package up until yesterday. I got them for free which is a plus since I was not going to buy a package just to paint on them and then just find somebody who will want them. I got a small package and started doodling in them.

I just need to find somebody who will be willing to light one of them to see how the colors burn! no, I will not let people smoke them, I just want to burn them. And to see what happens since I painted them with Sharpie®

  • Cigarettes.
  • Sharpie® markers.

{26ª Bienal Nacional de Artes Visuales}

Last Sunday I visited the Museo de Arte Moderno {MAM} with my classmates and my teacher for the 26 Bienal Nacional de Artes Visuales. Since I forgot my camera I had to go back on Thursday. A Bienal it's basically a contest in which several Dominican artist or international artist with more than 5 years living in the country present their works in the museum { I did not explain that right but you get the general idea}. I had the opportunity to see a lot of amazing works from very talented artist:

Persio Checo "Mis parientes más cercanos"
Samuel Priego “Comercial desde 1492”
Moíses Pellerano "Rape?"
Charo Oquet "En un abrir y cerrar de ojos"
Aquiles Azar Billini "Colada"
I'm looking forward to visit the museum more often. Didn't spent the amount of time I was hoping for cause I was visiting it with a friend and we needed to go after I took the photos I needed.

{Chalk it up!}

I finally did this!
I've been wanting to do this for almost a month and the weather have been so unstable... I was going to paint them yesterday but while I was taking classes it started raining and continue raining all day long. Today was all sunny so I went outside and start painting my cans with chalkboard paint:

Really easy to do. Just grab some empty cans and paint them with chalkboard paint. My camera battery is not longer working...

  • Old empty cans
  • Chalkboard paint

{"C" is for Cookie}

that's good enough for me.
I had a hard time picking the right colors for this. I painted this God knows how many times before I got the color I liked. I'm not sure how I ended up making this. I think I was making a mold for something and while testing it I had this chunk of clay and nothing to do and this is what came out of it:

  • Air Dry Clay
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Wire
  • Scissors, cutter, toothpick {for texture}
