The Healing Hearts Project by CT artist, June Ahrens

A lot of good love can happen in ten years.  ~Jim Carrey Similar to Ghetti’s Tears tribute, Ahrens also memorializes the number of victims.  Three thousand hearts – inside are messages, prayers of peace and hope – silent and unknown.  I remember walking into Ahrens’ studio at a Loft Artists Open House back in 2002 [...]

Green Question Mark

By Michelina Docimo It’s the morning after Valentine’s Day and this is a loaded question.  For some it may be rosier, for others back to drab gray.   This may be a good time to consider what is the meaning of true love?  So many definitions of love, literal and metaphorical, yet it remains mystifying [...]

pop_art_kiss

By Michelina Docimo Ancient lovers believed a kiss would literally unite their souls, because the spirit was said to be carried in one’s breath. ~ Eve Glicksman When I started Myartobiography, I included a few pieces that didn’t make the cut because I felt there was still something there.  I thought about the time that [...]

Mayer Kirshenblatt, "The Gramaphone," 1999

A Collection of Memory at the Westport Arts Center By: Michelina Docimo We are a world obsessed with memory.  And rightfully so, because in the end, this is what is we are left with – an intangible of all the tangible photos, videos, letters, souvenirs, newspaper clippings, charms, and other keepsakes that we collect throughout [...]

By: Michelina Docimo I love cake – cheesecake, carrot cake, strawberry short cake, chocolate flourless cake, Italian rum cake, lemon poppyseed cake, ice-cream cake, and even cupcake cake.  I remember events by the cake served.  I eat my leftover birthday cake for breakfast.  Last year, I had two of the most beautiful birthday cakes ever.

"Mornings of Gold," Amber Maida, 36x48

By: Michelina Docimo Back in February, at the opening of Industrial Strength in Bridgeport, I was introduced to Amber Maida’s art.  A multi-artist show in one room, I started my walk at the entrance, from right to left, like Arabic text.  But when I turned around, along the back wall, a magnetic pull brought me [...]

cherry tomato in soil

By: Michelina Docimo Last night, I spent hours thinking dirty, sinking my hands into luscious loamy soil, squeezing silt and sand in between my toes, mmm the intoxicating smell of  the wet earth.   The Greenwich Audubon hosted an event that realized this fantasy and appreciation for soil by bringing together some of Connecticut’s finest [...]

Picture 069

“I said to myself — I’ll paint what I see — what the flower is to me but I’ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it — I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers.” Georgia O’Keefe By: Michelina [...]
