Jose' Parla' (one of my very first favorite artists I met back in 2006 when he was featured at The Koehler Gallery here in Spokane) has inspired my own work from the beginning.

Jose' has painted a phenomenal 90ft x 14ft mural that will be installed into the entrance of the World Trade Center.

There are also new paintings that will be featured in his solo showing titled, 'En Media Res' beginning tomorrow, September 12th - October 18th in New York at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery. 

If you're close it's a must see!

Would You Like a Steak and Cheesy Potato To Go With That Fragrance?

This Summer I purchased for the first time a Bath and Body Works Duo titled, "Hello Sunshine" (so I could save a little on my Nordstrom's fine fragrance perfume).

It's no wonder why I chose "Hello Sunshine" as it contained some of my very favorite ingredients...Sparkling Meyer Lemon, Luscious Tangerine, and Sunflower Petals. Ooh.

I couldn't help but think how we humans enjoy smelling like edible things which actually consists of a plethora of dessert items that appeal to our senses (Honey Crisp Apples and Buttered Rum Orchard,  Pumpkin Latte and Roasted Marshmallows, Brown Sugar and Fig, Warm Apple name a few).

I mean. Why not smell like something that will not only make YOU, but all of those around you really really hungry too?

Stay with me now.

And if we so enjoy wearing edible scented fragrances, why not take it a step further for the Modern Man. I say Men should have a line of fragrances equally as desirable.

How's about some:

*Steak and twice baked cheesy potato
*The Papa Murphy's Cowboy Family Special (I know, right?)
*Liver and Onions (for some great 70's childhood memories)
*Oh. Let's not forget the Coney Island Hot Dog (heavy on the Coney)
*Five Guys Burger and Fries (for that one guy)
*Moon's Mongolian Grill (need I say more?)
*Beef Pho with hints of mint leaves, plum sauce, and sriracha
*Chips and Salsa (classic)

Hey. Why not?

All I know now, is that it's about lunchtime and this whole conversation has made me hungry.
