Catalina Garreton Firework

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework

Happy Independence Day! I woke up early and headed to the studio with a fresh start on this gorgeous sunny day in SF.

I’m currently working on some pieces for a show this fall at the fabulous Bacchus in Russian Hill. Details to come. I’m nodding back to a style that I showed at Jeffrey Allen in Portland, where I took much inspiration from the antique Buddhas that also found a home there. At that time though, I was sitting on the floor in my mama’s foyer, painting away. Now I’m sitting on the floor of my San Francisco studio, painting and feeling grateful for the journey.

ImageI can’t help but see the fireworks in this (disclaimer: work-in-progress!) piece, and I took some extra inspiration from Katy Perry this morning as I worked (this also lead to a spontaneous dance party).

ImageHer lyrics “You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine…Just own the night like the 4th of July” ring especially true today…xo.
