Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Perfect Guacamole

2 ripe avocados
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 ripe tomato, seeded & chopped
1tsp cumin
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Cut avocados in half, remove pit. Scoop out avocado & mash lightly with a fork. Add onions, tomatoes, lime juice, cumin, salt & pepper. Mash again, but don't overdo it! This guacamole should be a little chunky. 

Create, eat, enjoy. 

11th Toronto Timeraiser

On Saturday, May 24th, I'll be participating in the 11th Toronto Timeraiser -- a silent art auction where visitors bid volunteer hours instead of money. Throughout the evening, guests will meet with various non-profit organizations in order to find available volunteer opportunities that meet their needs. Once matches are made, the bidding begins. I am so proud to be a part of this year's event! Here are the details:

WHEN: Saturday, May 24th, 7pm - 10pm
WHERE: The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery
231 Queens Quay West, Toronto, ON M5J 2G8

Bidders will have the opportunity to walk away with this limited edition print, based on the original painting measuring 48" x 48": 

Limited Edition Print (Signed), Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, 28" x 28" Framed

Hope to see you there!

The Cookie Project

Is there any better project than a cookie project? 

From start to finish, this painting has been an absolute pleasure. The photoshoot wasn't half bad, either. I sorted through three boxes of cookies in order to find the perfect specimen -- a nice, round cookie with good chocolate-exposure. I like PC's Decadent cookies because they are so relatable. We all know their familiar crumbly crunch, followed by that heavenly melt-in-your-mouth sensation. After a few casualties and a glass of milk, I finally found my star. 

Acrylic on Canvas, 36" x 36" (work in progress)

I'm currently putting the finishing touches on this painting, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Who wouldn't want to look at a giant chocolate chip cookie every day? I'm aiming to finish by the end of week... stay tuned for the finished product!
