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!

Are you one of the many people who are waiting ’til the last minute to get your 2013 wall calendar? Or maybe you’re one of those people thinking of just going to Walmart to get one of their mass produced cheap calendars? Well, if you’re either of the aforementioned people, then you might just be setting yourself up for disappointment as you get stuck with some not so exciting generic images of flowers or cats. No bueno
To prevent this sort of lack luster yearlong visual monotony in the upcoming new year with a wall calendar that you don’t really like, take a moment to consider these 5 reasons why you should invest in one (or both) of these two YCL Art calendars featuring my original art work:
Reason #5: You’ll be supporting a local business (a.k.a. a local artist) and as we all know, Going Local (GoLO) is the new black 🙂
Reason #4: After 2013 is over, you will have 12 beautiful fine art prints that can be framed & enjoyed for many years to come…or re-gifted to that somebody special 😉
Reason #3: You know and I know that technology is not always foolproof, especially when we forget to charge our cell phones more than we’d like to admit which makes having a wall calendar a much needed necessity.
Reason #2: Another failed apocalyptic scare has come and gone so you will definitely need to prepare for next year.
Reason #1: It’s almost next year already!
Yup, those are indeed, 5 very good reasons to invest in your very own 2013 YCL Art calendar.

Are You Ready For Some Kickball?! 22″x28″ acrylic on canvas
It was roughly 1982, and I was attending Phoebe Hearst Elementary School in Metairie, LA. Our P.E. uniforms were all green, with our school logo in yellow, not the most fashionable attire, but I don’t think school uniforms ever really are.
So with my favorite pair of green tennis shoes , my sweatband in place & my jock socks pulled up all the way, I was ready for some kickball action. I was the tallest & lankiest kid in my class and I was never really good at any sports, but one sport I was pretty good at was kickball.
There were several perks about this particular sport that seemed to work in my favor such as but not limited to:
- The ball was big & red, which definitely was a bonus for my poor vision.
- Unlike other sports, it was customary for the person serving the ball to ask you “How do you want it?” My response was always the same: “Slow and Bouncy!”
- The 2 previous perks allowed me enough time to brace myself, prepare my ridiculously long leg to swing, and with the bounce element factored in, I was also able to time my large foot exactly where it needed to be: right under the ball as it was coming down from a bounce.
With all the above in place, I swung with all my might, sending the giant red ball farther than most anyone in my age group, but never far enough for a home run. Though I had pretty decent kicking skills, my awkward stature made me a super slow runner. Either way, at the very least, I was able to impress the masses with my kicking ability, even if it only was just for a moment 🙂
