these texts are an archive of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area from march 2007 - march 2015. it stands as a record of close to a decade of my life, charting the struggles i faced as an artist, daughter, and lover. messy and chaotic at times, eloquent and poetic at others, these texts are an index i am proud of. it was here in this electric box that i learned how to be honest about my experiences and the person i needed to become. it was here that i first learned the truism that words make the world and how to trust such a beautiful, rife, hard fact.

thank you for meeting me here in such tall grass.

my artist website is here.

i allowed myself to sleep in today. it's the big beautiful perk of saturday and i needed to cash in on it big time. i got crappy sleep all week. out of no where my horrible tendency to lay awake all night returned and it made the week long and painful and unhappy. adequate sleep is a magical and lovely thing.

so now, well rested and with newly polished teeth, i'm in an eager and bright mood. it's chilly but sunny and in a little while we'll head out to the city to drop off new work. i love drop-off day at the gallery. LOVE! it's so much fun to sit around and talk shop and make art nerd jokes.

and yesterday, columbia pictures bought this little painting...

6" x 6"
acrylic and graphite on canvas
angela simione, 2009 part of the set design for The Smurfs movie! hahahahahahaha! my little painting's gonna be on the big screen! i get such a big kick out of that! awesome!

all this to say- it's a happy, happy day.

You Artist you! Congratualations!!!

Mama -And again another favorite of mine. One of these days I will be able to buy a book with all your prints and then I will be able to look at all my favorites in my home on my couch and say to people this is Angela Simione's work isn't she brilliant and hey guess what in my best 5 year old voice she used my hair for a piece. (after Halloween I need it for my costume : )

Jeanne Flores said...

Ha! I have your postcard with this painting on it on my office wall right now! With the new decor regulations, it's the only thing I pinned up other than a picture of Peter. Congratulations, Big Time!


angela simione said...

ohhhhh marta, i will be waiting. let me know when you're ready. no rush. it's a hard decision to cut off so much hair all at once.

it's so fun to think about all the things to come- all the paintings and projects. i can dream all night long about them and not get a wink of sleep. :)

angela simione said...
