Paul Porras – Fitness Coach in Arizona – Talks About Paul Core: An Outdoor Fitness club in Arizona

 

“Paul Porras has led a disciplined life of hard work and focus on excellence. All the while having a goodly amount of fun and frivolity. Paul speaks about his outdoor fitness club in Arizona: Paul Core, as well as a movement that’s grown worldwide with the Hike Street Boyz and Hike Street Girlz. I ask him about what got him to this point, how he mentors people into better habits, about fear, and, of course, about that beautiful ginger beard.

Chance the Rapper Sketch & Frank Ocean Artwork by Arizona Artist Alana Christine

“There is so much to like about Arizona Artist Alana Christine. Her skill for realistic portraits and pop art style, call for supporting living artists, and intriguing YouTube channel are but a few things that made me want to learn even more about this dynamic person. As a bonus – the time-lapse artwork of her subjects Frank Ocean and Chance the Rapper are scored by music from none other than her husband, Rob Hittz, who is an impressive artist in his own right. What a dynamo family!

Artwork installed in my local Phoenix coffee shop – Hava Java!

Artwork installed in my local Phoenix coffee shop – Hava Java!

UPDATE: I’ll be Live Painting at Hava Java on February 7th from 1 to 5pm! See Facebook Event here : https://www.facebook.com/events/2308100882756488/

You came for the beverage, but may linger for the art. Local coffee shops that offer its regular customers a rotating art collection always impress me. It takes time to reach out to local artists, curate those that respond, and install and de-install on a regular basis. So, mixing it up for those regulars that come week after week with a new collection of art is extra-special. Double-plus that if the artwork happens to be mine for a few of those rotations!

This is the second time I’ve shown work at my local coffee shop Hava Java. I actually did a feature of the curator who I worked with at that time, Melisa Elias, an artist in her own right. You can see that here.

My first installation was all about BIG pieces, but I wanted to mix the current installation up with a few of my old favorite pieces – a few of which were painted during my time in Buenos Aires – a little while ago now.

Each piece hanging at Hava Java now has a special place in my heart. As with all artwork, each has its own origin story – which is also is in part a story of me and a place and time in my life. Please see the images below!

The Living Room - Geometric Modern Art Ariznoa FIne Artist Skye Lucking Pink Frame

The Living Room – Geometric Modern Art Arizona FIne Artist Skye Lucking Pink Frame

I was listening to a “This American Life” episode titled “The Living Room” while creating this modern geometric art piece in a pink frame.

I have some lovely framed originals that would make great holiday gifts for a forever home! This framed original is titled “The Living Room” – 9.25 x 11.25 inches in a painted pink frame. On the inside of the glass, I’ve added ink to give the image a 3rd dimension. I’ve been playing with adding dimension in my works and this was one of the first experiments!  Send me a DM if you’re interested!

Chinoiserie Mural Project

Chinoiserie Mural Project

Installed last week, these Chinoiserie panels were created using stencils in the Chinoiserie style. Chinoiserie is the European interpretation and imitation of Chinese and East Asian artistic traditions, especially in the decorative arts, garden design, architecture, literature, theatre, and music. At first, the client wanted the stencils in white. However, after the initial painting, she decided she wanted them in the colors of her interior design motif of turquoise, blue, green, lavender, and purple. I’m so glad she went that direction! It turned out beautifully. This project was so important to me as an artist. See why below!

I was overjoyed to install this 3-panel “mural” project last week. The first inquiry about it came to me a week after being laid-off from my corporate job last year when I was in a whirlwind of “what next?” and considering both a full-time job as an artist or another corporate job or the like. Aside from the encouragement from my amazing hubs, this out-of-the-blue project request was one of the things that gave me the courage to start the most creative, fulfilling, curious, exhausting, and fun years of my life. It was the proverbial “sign from the universe”!

This client was a dream client – with a beautiful style, funny sense of humor, and adorable pup. She said she was fine with me doing other projects if I needed to while working in her’s which gave me the opportunity to do the Phoenix Mural Project. Now, this project is done- she’s delighted and I have bittersweet feelings about not having those birds hanging around my house. I am so glad I made the choice I did, scary as it was, to devote my life to my own creative process plus spotlighting the creative geniuses all around with @youarecourageous. These silvery panels were at the start of it all!
