The concrete jungle

doesn’t always seem that way. Photos taken 8/15/10 in Jersey City. There’s a pic of flying monkeys at the end because 1) flying monkeys are cool 2) they are inspiring me right now for some new paintings I’ll be doing soon for a solo show in February. More later, loves…

It’s untimely to write about this now at its end, but I attended in person…and was having too much fun.
Genoa is a remarkable city with beautiful, sophisticated and kind people. Their gelato beats any in NYC hands down, the espresso mi piace and the cheeses, mmm (not the headcheeses)…
The city is as beautiful as it’s people, with artwork everywhere, even the streets and buildings. I wish it were more like that here. The shopping is FAB. (FAB!!!)

An Italian Newspaper, the Corriere Mercantile, covered the MF Skulls show and chose my painting for the story:

The JC old-timers up the block love that.


Christopher Columbus is from Genoa.

With M&F, opening night @ MF Gallery, Genoa.

The opening was great and successful but it was xtra fun for Martina’s Bday, complete with skull cakes!

Frank, with his piece behind him to the right. Also pieces by Scott Holloway, Drew Maillard and a bunch of other great artists.

Morg & MF

Paulo & Wife, Enrico & Viola

It was a great night!

Around Genoa, too many beautiful things to even capture in a week. I had fantastic hosts and couldn’t have asked for anything more! Thanks M&F!

Silvano, who was also in MF show

We went & picked grapes at Viola’s family vinyard in the north. It was amazing.


Ooooh in love with Camogli

Martina graciously lent me her copy of “Hell’s Angel’s” when I couldn’t sleep and for the long travels home through France and Holland.

I really love Holland, I’d like to live there.

Well, I don’t cook meat so we know where this is going. I’m so full of beautiful summer veggies I got at the Hamilton Park Farmers market today. Next time I’ll use polenta, but this is my year of bad carbs (and it shows!) so I made a summer squash primavera with angel hair and fresh grated cheese.
Any how- I moved, hence my delay in blogging. No fears dears, I never forgot about you. Moved from the ghetto fab to the fancy neighborhood of Hamilton Park….fancy in it’s own way;

but hey, that guy’s from Belmar (where I lived before I moved back to JC, coincidentally) and there’s a reason they’re called Belmartians. *sighs*
Funny comments below article, naturally.

So, here’s some pics that will make you gain weight just looking at them.

Pretty Summer colors

Pierogies the other night, with Portobellos ~

Always room for dessert ~

Besides increasing my dress size, lots of fun things going on as always. The awesome M&F of MF Gallery are taking my painting to Genoa, Italy for a show there in September @ MF Genoa. I hope to join them for the opening 😉 Here’s a pic from an opening of Frank’s at Live Fast, NYC last weekend, go buy a Monster Head!
Martina, Frank, artist Gary Gilmore

and some pix from Martina’s rooftop BBQ. Poor thing, the view is horrible 🙂

Opening day @ Hamilton park after 1 year renovations ~

Ironically, I feel that Alexander Hamilton is popular this year, where as Lincoln was the man for the past few years, and I just moved away from Lincoln Park. Yes, my thinking is strange but it was confirmed by a Cracker Jack toy. This is Ike @ the Hamilton Park dog run, realizing this yorkie is an impostor and not one of his friends like Louie or Hercules.

My lovely flower boxes I planted in front of my apartment, really enjoying them~

And my fattie goldfish really digging his orange!

So, now that all is almost right again in my little world, next on to painting!!! (and maybe even the gym!)
