It’s the end of a long day painting at the harbor followed by an inspiring night in Copacabana.
Finishing a day of painting at the square. ~FlutuArte!
It’s 4am and storming here in Rio de Janeiro as I zoom down Avenida Atlantica along Ipanema beach in the back of a dark taxi van filled with empty seats and me.
I am coming from a new friends house, a girl named Perola whom I deeply admire. I spent the evening with her and a few of her eclectic friends in an apartment in Copacabana, singing, playing music and practicing Portuguese. Perola’s artwork is like something out of the renaissance era. She can sing like a both a haunting ghost and a glorious angel and she has a special spark of infectious glee. She will be painting a boat for FlutuArte, the floating gallery project which I am working on every day with Maxine Nienow among other collaborators.
We just launched the website today: www.FlutuArte.com
