I Whooped Eva’s @$$

Scrabble Tiles

Not related to the coffee shop at all, nor to surfing, but… I just wanted to let everyone know that I whooped Eva’s @$$ at scrabble the other night.

I beat her with a seven-letter word (W-H-E-E-L-I-N-G). …And it happened to be placed on a triple word tile, giving me 48 points. …Plus I got an additional 50 points for using all of my seven tiles –BONUS!!!

HaHaHa Eva!!!

“Surrender” series by Patrizia Didiomete

Patti's Art Show pic #1

Ok -so I know I just now, shared with you all the first artist I showcased this season, but we are on …to the next one.

For the month of February, Picture of Patrizia Didiometethe shop will be featuring artist,
Patrizia Didiomete.

Patti as her friends call her, comes from Vancouver Island –studied art at North Island College exploring clay, stone, metal, concrete, paint, and canvas -resulting in the creation of sculpture and paintings which emphasize form and color.

Which is amazingly illustrated in her newest series “Surrender”Paintings of women floating, drifting, and simply sitting.

Here, she uses the female form as a metaphor for the existential search for meaning and ultimately happiness.

The idea of “letting go” and “surrendering” as an exploration of self discovery and the journey to finding and living a purposeful life.

Below, is the “Surrender” series.  Check them out 😉 Continue Reading →
