unique artwork & gifts...created at the beach from the heart

Andrea Salamanca with Coco Bleu Photography took photos of me and my artwork about a month ago.  It was a blast!

When we were discussing the theme of the shoot beforehand, she mentioned bright colors, big hair, and “Starving Artist”.  She then sent me a few photos of Cyndi Lauper all dolled up in front of a bunch of junk.  Andrea wanted to convey the message that we can turn trash into treasure and that there’s beauty everywhere.  I thought this song perfectly displayed that point.

Show your true colors by being yourself, that’s the most beautiful you can be.

True Colors

“You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged
Oh I realize
It’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Show me a smile then,
Don’t be unhappy, can’t remember
When I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I’ll be there”

– Cyndi Lauper
