The Dingo Walks in Love: NOLA Edition
An impromptu road trip to my hometown this weekend not only sparked much nostalgia and an opportunity to show my hubby first hand where the inspiration for much of the art in my Childhood Series came from, but I was also able to spread some important lessons in love with the help of The Dingo with a few free art drops.
Check out the pics above to see where some of the drops were made and check out the pics below to see some of the other sights & flavors we got to indulge in during our visit.
The first book of The Dingo Walks in Love series will be available for sale on Oct. 15th, 2014 through Blurb.com. Be sure to follow The Dingo Walks in Love official facebook page or signup for my bi-weekly newsletter to stay in the know.
Thanks to all for your support and remember to walk in love!

By now, you may have heard about my One Spark 2014 project called The Dingo Walks in Love. In a nutshell, I will use the power of art, the power of public art, the power of socially engaging public art, and not to mention the power of social media to spread very valuable lessons in love. The star of this new series will be none other than, The Dingo, who will be beautifully demonstrating how to walk in love through various scenarios which include but are not limited to: Love is Patient, Love is Considerate, Love is Environmentally Aware, Love is Community, Love is Sharing the Road, Love is Kind, Love is Humble, etc. These illustrations will be printed and used in my free Art Drops, will be self-published in a book/ebook, will be shared through social media, and last but not least will be used for future public murals.
All this is in an effort to spread lessons in love, be reminders of how to love, be opportunities for teaching moments for the young and old alike. The broader the reach, the broader the impact of this project. To start this impact sooner than later, I will be doing a month long Dingo Walks in Love Free Art Drop Extravaganza with the featured illustration being prints of: Love is Patient.
There will be 2 free art drops a day for the entire month of March throughout the city of Jacksonville and beyond. Here’s where I need your help:
- I need your help spreading the word about my project. Whether it be through social media, a personal email to friends and family, or even by word of mouth. Following the project on Facebook & Twitter is a great start because from there you’ll be able to share, tweet, retweet, post, like, etc the project as it develops and you’ll also have a better chance of scoring a free piece of art through the many Art Drops that I’ll be doing related to this project.
- I need your support. The time and funds required to pull off a month long Art Drop and an opportunity like One Spark 2014 is HUGE! Consider making a financial contribution, purchasing some art from my online Etsy Store, or becoming an official sponsor (contact me no later than Friday Feb. 21, 2014 to arrange sponsorship) of The Dingo Walks in Love Free Art Drop Extravaganza.
We’ve all experienced moments of anger, offense, and hate at some point in our lives, but like the saying goes: Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it. Whether we are the ones initiating the love or reacting in love, we can never have too much of it in our world. Help me to use the power of art to spread this message far and wide. Thank you for all your support. Now go out and make this world a better place 🙂

February 1st, 2013, was my birthday and it also happened to be Free Art Friday (woo hoo!) So I celebrated this momentous occasion with some very special Art Drops.
My day started at Metro Diner in historic San Marco where I got treated to the most decadent biscuits and gravy this side of the Mississippi and I tried a new dish called the JAX Hash which was just as equally yummy. As a thank you for my amazing breakfast dining experience, I shared some Free Art Love in the form of my 2013 YCL Art Childhood Series Calendar 🙂
Next, I saw a great opportunity to leave one of my favorite pieces called “Bath-time” a 30″x40″ acrylic on canvas painting by this beautiful statue of a sailor located on the Southbank of the Riverwalk by the Strand.
And finally, the day would not be complete if I didn’t share some Dingo Loves Jax love in the form of this 2013 Calendar. This drop was also done on the Southbank Riverwalk.
But that’s not all. In case you missed all the free art love that got shared during the month of January, be sure to take a look at the gallery below and if you feel inclined to help support this effort to Bring Art to the People, be sure to click the Donate button to the top right of your screen.
