The Forbidden Art Files

"Aqualove" by Stefan Gesell. Everything about this is perfect. 

"At the Window" by Nelina Trubach-Moshnikova. 

Artist Unknown :( 

"Julie" by Fay Helfer. Stunning linework. 


I can't wait to see Japan next month! I'll be going with the most incredible photographer that does as much (if not more) research than me! 

We are going to come up with some INSANE images! 

Kimono = check! 

American Geisha.

I can't wait to see the bamboo forest of Arashiyama (Kyoto)!

Until then...

The Forbidden Art Files

Art I won't post for National Art Society that I have to share...

Sugar cube sponge, adorable coffee cup tub...reminds me of Dita von Teese's martini glass burlesque show. LOVES! (Too girly/risqué to post)

A. Brito's nude b&w balancing pieces. Perfection!

Too political. Great imagery.

The exquisite linework of Adara Sanchez Anquiano...too nipply.

Bernini's "The Rape of Proserpina". (Too controversial)... but the detail of the hands on the thigh (IN MARBLE)...there are no words. 

Inspired by Jean-Auguste-Dominique (Ingres La Grande Baigneuse), Man Ray's (Ingre's Violin). 

I wanna run to you and get away, I want to hide with you but I can't escape (Flexprod)

I'm suffering from an irreversible condition known as "Wanderlust".

I want to see all the beauty this world has to offer.

...places I have only seen in my dreams.

Powerful serenity.


Victoria Falls into my heart.

Intense stillness.

Running destroyed my fears.

The more I run, the less I'm concerned about the opinions of others.

I'm a distance runner, I keep going even when it's hard. 

Be a bad bitch ;)

Actually, you can.

See you at the starting line.

Running Inspiration

This morning I ran the La Jolla Half Marathon with my incredible training partner, Tina. I encourage all runners to find a training partner. Partners keep each other motivated, encourage each other, and provide accountability!
We are 5 weeks out from SD Rock & Roll Marathon! Yayyy! :)
Love her! 

You'd be surprised how many problems you can solve while running. 

Allyson Felix: my alter ego. Absolute perfection. I like to pretend I'm her at the end of a race and kick FAST! 

Take your aggressions to the road. Running is the best form of therapy. 

This may sound crazy, but I have better times when I run in cute clothes and shoes. I think a great running outfit can boost your confidence :)

I thought this was a fun way to display race bibs.  See you on the road! 

Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams. Just go ahead, let your hair down.

The perfect bow. 

This gorgeous striped sweater/infinity scarf combo make me miss those romantic winter nights.

Black stockings, leather gloves, and trench coats should be in every fashionista's wardrobe.

Red bottoms. Warm heart. 

I'm not the same girl anymore. Running changed me.

Steve Prefontaine. Time for guts.
Runners are courageous.

Get your head right.
The longrun is what puts the tiger in the cat.

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of POWER, LOVE, AND A SOUND MIND!"
(2 Timothy 1:7)

Hey boy, I really wanna see if you can go downtown with a girl like me.

 Girl's Night Mandatory! :)
