I am working on my annual postcard "Postcards on the Edge".... basically you do your art on a postcard size piece of paper and donate it for auction to Benefit the VisualAids organization. This is my 3rd year doing it, so I invite others to do it, you have until the first week of december to send it in....This is my piece so far...

So here are some new ones.....

Just a little note that my work is now up at Sugar Sweet Sunshine for the month. It is close to the corner of Rivington and Essex. I am having a little mini party Friday night at 8 if anyone is around. I put up the work last friday and 3 pieces have sold, so it is pretty exciting. They are already in another country and I had to put up new work again yesterday!
I hope all is well and hope you guys can make it at some point to check out my work and get a delicious cupcake!

To those of you who don't know. In October I will have some work up at a cupcake cafe in the lower east side Sugar Sweet Sunshine. I visited last week and it is a cute little space and I will be able to have about 4 pieces up. I also volunteered to make a small painting of one of their cupcakes. I spoke with the owner while I was there and decided to try the red-velvet cupcake. It was delicious...I took some pictures and decided this is the one I would paint. I highly suggest the place for sweets and hope to see some of you over there when the time comes. Above is the 7"x7" painting "sugar sweet sunshine...with sprinkles on top"

-Well, as most of you know, I seem to have a million places where parts of my artwork is, in addition to the "real" website which was ancient and lately under fake construction (i wasn't working on it, who are we kidding). So I have discovered blogspot! It is pretty easy to keep up to date so I have spent my saturday morning/afternoon uploading mostly EVERYTHING onto this site, I am sure there are a few things missing but it is a whole lot better than before. The pieces are pretty much stuck up there with not a lot of descriptions but from now on, the new updates will be better.....
-In addition, as most of you know - I am starting a new endeavor, of painting peoples wedding cakes. I have started already building a portfolio at www.lisawickasweets.blogspot.com which can always be accessed on this site as well. Please let me know your opinions and recommend me to anyone you think might be interested. I am now taking a break on those paintings in hopes for commissions :-)
-I believe what has started all this organization and new beginnings is the fact that I have a studio space to work in for a while...nothing like paying for a space to be a little kick in the butt I guess. It has been pretty productive so far and I hope it continues.
-If you are new to my work, take a look around, leave some comments and let me know what you think. If you are interested in a studio visit, just contact me by email and we can set something up. Enjoy!
