Welcome back!

Hey Dorota!

Glad to hear that you are resurfacing, i was worried about you. No biggie about laying low for a while, sometimes the body and the brain do not always jive with everything we want to do. I don’t think it is out of a lack of pushing yourself or even being a little lost trying to make sense of everything but I think it’s just a good break that you need in order to put everything back the way it was. When we have too much, we lose our senses of directions, our thoughts get scattered and shattered all over and it is hard to keep them all together. Been there too:-)

 No need to feel guilty at all. You’ll find your way back eventually and take the time it takes to head back to normal.

All is good here, real busy with artwork with Marie-Josee and my own of course, i am sure that you have been following some stuff on FB. I do not post everything there that i am working on but the main stuff. Busy with gallery shows and planning 2011. It’s great! I have tons of work and never bored. 🙂

Sounds like a lot but i still have the time for the next adventure with my darling Dorota when you are ready!

Funny but the other night i was relaxing watching a movie and i thought… when was the last time i went out? I can’t even remember… you know the type of night of going for dinner, movie, cocktails, bars and the night is always young… I have been such a home, studio, work mode that i cannot actually recall a full night of just letting go. The only things i do for entertainment are vernissages, hanging out at home with movies, pot lucks with friends and some small gatterings. Even on New year’s eve Bruce and I went to our friends Robert and Lara to watch a movie and eat dinner. And in all seriousness it was the best!

I think i am aging? 🙂 Kidding…

Without noticing i have been narrowing down my priorities. I still would love to go and hang out and go wild. But i rule a lot of it out. Since,  i got more intensively focused on my work i seem to function better. I am an artist and i love what i do, i made some compromises this last year and i am so much more productive now!

I guess what i am saying is that life does not need to be filled with options and opportunities that you are afraid to miss out on because in the end, it is your work that will be remembered. For me i would rather push myself into my art to give to to others than letting myself go and to not provide what i am good at (art).

Whatever inspires you now, is what you should be working on.

You write: Show them.

I do art:  Show them.

Love you tons baby and never forget the artist in you.


It’s true I’ve sort of disappeared…

My dearest Jerome,

I can’t believe what a flake I’ve been to you, of all people. You who has never let me down, you who always comes through in the eleventh hour, you who accommodates me so much…

But I haven’t been myself the last few months. Or maybe I’ve been going through some kind of transformation, not to be a flake, god I hope not.

I can’t explain it or really put my finger on it. I feel my productivity is slipping away, like I can’t seem to get even the easiest of tasks done. I’m not good at being a housewife. I shop too much. And I keep thinking I need a vacation, but I’ve sort of had several now, and it hasn’t seemed to help.

I can’t find a well-paying job, this one client that was supposed to give me ALL this work bailed, so I’m back to, I don’t know, blogging I suppose, and twittering, and really trying to write, although my efforts have been going to the third Sex, Life, & Hannah book lately, which is so ridiculous when I only have three pages to go with Lila, but I can’t seem to finish. I want to finish, I have ideas of how to finish, but now this whole Sex, Life, & Hannah thing…

Thank you for doing without the pictures, what is your website now? I want to check it out, and twitter about it. God, if the social networking doesn’t kill me, this new reality TV show I’ve been asked to do just might. Yes, reality TV. I should tell you the details over the phone, but in a nutshell: they want female writers to write about their life, relationships, sex, experiences, love. It’s weird, I’m sort of doing all that anyway, but this would be more personal, and more public all at the same time, and my parents may really disown me. But what’s life if you don’t take any risks?

Hubbie has sort of signed off on the whole thing. Sort of. He’d really much rather I don’t drag our private life through the mud, but I keep telling him: we can be better and smarter than the Kardashians. Although who knows if that’s what America really wants. Do they want better and smarter, or do they just want hot ass? And sex tapes? Not that there’s anything wrong with any of that, but it’s not what I’m about.

I’m still going to send you the pictures. Tonight. I’m doing it. Just in case. And I will finish Lila, though, I’m not going to give myself any timelines. For fear of looking like a flake again.

Love, love, love, and happy 2011 my dearest jerome, xoxoxo, D:)

Yeah, Noho is getting visited!

October 7, 2010

Didn’t I tell you about the show? Thought i did but perhaps i lost track of things. Well the show was postponed a few times, so you may have known of a previous date that still needed to be confirmed… But for sure it is this saturday night Oct 9th! Oh and i will be there too! Via satellite:-)

Some great art too!

Well…Jerome’s art at least will be in NOHO.

JEROME! I can’t believe you didn’t tell me about this earlier. I had to find out from hubbie, last night. Don’t you think that’s a bit bizarre? Anyway, can’t wait to check it out. You are the first artist I ever bought real artwork from, you never cease to amaze me, and always keep me coming back for more.
