Canvas', Cafes, and First art shows...

My show looks so swell! I'm so thankful! I've updated it a few times in the last two months and each time add more and more hand made canvas' and water colors. It's glorious having a space to hang my work, and i hope to have the privilege to do it again!
I truly LOVE how this canvas came out! So pretty, and cute. I love it!! <3

I am SO grateful for United Arts. I couldn't have done ANY of this without them. Just filling out the grant application gave me the COURAGE to apply to have my work at B3, the grant i won this year provided me with materials to make this show come true. I am so very blessed. I have sold originals, and prints at B3, Drunken Monkey, and Timothy's Gallery. 

Bikes, Beans and Bordeaux has the BEST egg/cheese sandwich I've ever had.

I am SO blessed. Thank you to Jen and Darrell at B3, and to all my friends and family who have supported me, and purchased my art. I am honored, and so thankful for your support. It really does mean THE WORLD to me. :)

Much love,
Jenipher :)

Tonight's [colored] Doodles.

Just stopping by....

These doodles wanted me to color them and show them off so badly, that i just couldn't resist.
Have a beautiful [creative] night!

To New York! And beyond. :)

So..... i just came back from New York. I had the most incredible time. I've been living in nostalgia the whole week i've been back.

Camilo took me on lots of adventures; we were literally 'adventuring' from 10am to 4am every day i was there. CRAZY!


I stayed in Astoria, Queens, which i think might be my favorite 'borough' in NY. I LOVE the quaint brick houses, and that it's still full of people, yet not over crowded and intimidating like the city.

Although all the 2011 sketchbooks were on tour already when i got there, i got to enjoy the 2010 sketchbooks from the Sketchbook Project at the Brooklyn Art Library. What a pretty store!!

I also got to enjoy Renegade Craft Fair which was PRETTY STELLAR! I'm going to apply to it next year. ::crossing my fingers!!:: 

This was my first time riding a real train. It was kind of like a grey hound, only much larger. Double decker in fact! I made friends with the tattoo'd pierced, bald, ticket collector man. He was my peep!

I seriously can't wait to go back!!! I miss my friends terribly, and can't wait to run a muck with them in the fall!
Have you adventured anwhere recently? I'd love to hear about it!
Over and out,
Jenipher :)

Daily [animal] Doodles.

My lovely friend Andrea, from Paper Sparrow, is heading up the 'Daily Animal Doodle' project. It has been SO SO great participating so far, and getting some of my friends involved too. These are some of my doodles from the project.
this one if MY favorite, but i don't think anyone 'got it'.  such a shame! :)
Have you been participating in the project too?
do you WANT to?
let me know if you do, i'd LOVE to see your doodles!!!

smiles to you my dear inspiring friends,
Jenipher :)

It. Will. Get. Better.

I've been struggling a whole lot anxiety has been at an all time high, and i'm at the point where I'm hibernating, and not wanting to see people or leave my house, but get extreme loneliness every other hour or so.... it sounds like a contradiction doesn't it? 
Seeing as i am a very logical person, i wish i could see it as that and just dismiss whatever issue seems to be the problem. So, instead of freaking out over and over [oh wait no...i DO do that..] i decided to doodle the three statements i need to hear the most right now.

These are VERY important statements i think everyone should and needs to hear daily. So if you're not getting your daily dose of support or optimism, know that I'm out there, wishing these things for you!!!
I hope you're having a beautiful day you talented people you!

i heart bones.

I am utterly and completely in love with the show "Bones".

It's such a rarity that i actually watch a tv show consistently, and nearly IMPOSSIBLE that i would out of my way and spend money to purchase the DVD's of a series. 

As an avid 'chick flick' fan in everything from the books i read, to the movies i watch, i never once even considered watching "Bones" until it was playing as back round noise while working at my parents house. But the more it played, the less i worked as i became captivated by the quirky humor, and intelligent scientific babble that helped solve murder cases. 

I never watched"Angel" and never fancied David Boreanaz, but his character Booth is so genuinely sweet with Brennen...i find him very endearing. At least in this show.

Emily Deschanel is an amazing actress, and plays Dr. Brennen so well. I'm in awe that there are people IRL that are so smart, that they don't have a smidgen of so many general characteristics that most encompass.

If you're looking for a series to watch that has intelligent, witty humor, and a cast with amazing chemistry [punny!] then seriously, this show is for you!

Have a beautiful day folks!

Those who can find their way, are never lost.
Delight yourself in this statement with this snazzy compass necklace. A real brass compass hangs off a brass 24 inch chain.
