I have a recent obsession with old-fashioned scissors. And drawing from imagination is, indeed, terrifying. Silverpoint on gessoed wooden palette. Incomplete, as a lot of gilding will go on this (because I’m a masochist).

Another great video produced by @myaing_projects called “Save Your Art with Archival Art Materials.” It’s shorter & a bit more informal than the previous video, and a bit more universally applicable to any art practice. Click the link in bio to check it out!

Working entirely from imagination. Terrifying but much more stimulating. Silverpoint on the palette you can see me priming in @myaing_projects ‘ video a couple posts back!

This lady will be up tonight for @inliquidart ‘s dynamic Benefit in Philadelphia! Silverpoint on paper. Tried to pull a Steven Assael by using a razor to incise highlights but alas, he alone is the master of that technique!

Graphite drawing on butcher paper to transfer to my prepared panel. Composition was very specific so I wanted to ensure that I could erase & adjust the drawing before making incisions to transfer, then completing the drawing in an inerasable medium: silverpoint! Big challenges on this: lots of gilding & working mostly from imagination.

Beautiful install shot of “Of Silver & Sword” by my husband, the sculptor Brett Harvey (whose work can be seen @brett_f_harvey ), showcasing my fearless Abuela & portraits of my brother Carlos, a talented photographer (whose work can be seen @miklo34 ). Lucky to be surrounded by such creative dudes!

Many thanks to Alejandra y Jorge, and check out that creeper @brett_f_harvey in the background photographing me😅 But seriously, it was the best night, I’m still energized by it. The show is up now for the entire month, so if you’re in LA, please stop by!🙋🏽

Copy & paste crabs.rockportfilmfestival.com in your browser to learn where these little crabs are going! Even with its annual sponsors & venue devastated by Hurricane Harvey, the @rockportfilmfestival in Rockport, Texas is still going on this November. Buy one of these crabs, decorated by myself or another artist, to support the festival & ensure that the community can count on it! They're only $50 each & would make lovely Christmas ornaments or home decor. DM me if you have any questions at all! 🦀🦀🦀

These hands, as a part of "Of Silver & Sword," are getting some press love! But mostly they get MY love ... cheesy, but true. They're my abuela's hands. They hold our whole family, our whole history & legacy, and as such belong to the greatest warrior & brightest soul I know. I love these hands unconditionally, from her tropical island to my island of Manhattan, from when they helped me walk as a baby to when they twisted, dancing, at my wedding. These hands are my whole world, and what an honor to have my life originate from them. She is my biggest muse & most fearless queen. These are my abuela's hands.

I've lately been thinking of hands in two ways: firstly, as keys in a piano, and secondly, as their own portraits. As my awesome model @vargasagrav ' face is turned in this composition, her hands sound the notes of her story. Swipe right for a detail shot of this silverpoint drawing.

Cropped detail of the new silverpoint drawing with the awesome @vargasagrav as model & muse! Also: I drew this freehand without any prep work; overall drawing size is approx 24 x 30," which is big for a silverpoint & ambitious to draw in an in-erasable medium. Quite pleased with my weekend work!

This piece (and its pair) turned out to be some of the most solid gilding I've ever done. (And I'm a very bad gilder, so luckily that means the bar is set low.) Stay tuned for the final images ...

Trying to render a shiny helmet ... from imagination (gulp). I put a liberal amount of bone ash in this traditional gesso, so with some work, I *can* smudge a tiny bit with my finger, which isn't typical of silverpoint. Happy to be in front of my AC, drawing, while listening to @thecantinacast !
