I think this is the last of the PGB exhibition photos. I don’t think I saw anyone else taking photos. Time to move on. Thanks, Sharoofa, for taking part of this experience and sharing your photos. It was fun, wasn’t it.
Because photography is always encouraged in my life, I asked people to bring their cameras. So you will be seeing a few of these posts in the next couple of days.
Because I’m always showing videos and slideshows of my works in progress, I thought it would be a good idea to turn the tables and photograph others and their creative processes. So I set up a little work station and let people do their thing. Artists include Yasmeen Dimashkie, Yousef Abu-Ghazaleh, Khaled Abu-Ghazaleh, Zainab Abu-Ghazaleh, […]
For all the hardships endured in getting this exhibition up and ready, I would say that the opening went quite smoothly. And I think I might have even enjoyed it a little too much for a girl whose legs were about to collapse into a fleshy pile around her feet. But enough of my wobbly […]
I have finally completed this painting. It’s taken over a year (well, I did stop for months and months, but still, it was there gnawing at me, simmering on the back burner). I’m very happy with not just the way it has turned out, but the fact that I can include it in Tuesday’s show.
The date of my exhibition is creeping closer and my stomach just had to turn on me! In the past few days, my turbulent mind was stuck in a body that wouldn’t cooperate. I’ve finally mustered up enough strength, energy and appetite to post this final leg of my postcard series. For the next four […]
Many times when I do these postcards, I start off with circles. Watercolor is lots of fun when your brain is relaxed and you’re absent-mindedly painting colored shapes. When the circles are finally painted on and dry, either I get inspired immediately or not. With this one I didn’t get the inspiration until I started […]
I have started the official countdown to my upcoming exhibition, PrettyGreenBullet|The Exhibition. Just typing this has aroused the dormant butterflies in my stomach. I’m not going to go into details of the exhibition because, although I have a general feel of what I want, I know my ideas and thoughts will shift, expand and possibly […]
When I did this sketch, I wasn’t aware that it was drawn on the last sketchable page in this book, my second of the Sketchbook Twenty Ten books. So I was a little shocked when I felt the quality of the page, grainless and smooth. Plus I’ve always believed in the necessity of good-byes and […]

I was feeling very organic last weekend so decided to go out and buy some untreated canvas and play around a little. I also remembered that I had two or three potatoes once destined for a hearty mash, just sitting around in the fridge. Who knew that this would be their destination. I […]
A few years ago I bought a sketchbook. At the time I couldn’t find these sketchbooks in Kuwait so would buy them in Europe or the States. It was always special when I bought a new one and I took very good care that the books were themed by medium and state of mind. This particular […]
In 2006, I had this idea for an anonymous magazine, giving the writer/artist/photographer not just the freedom to display uncensored work, but the opportunity to be whoever they choose to be. The concept was to go all out, no holds barred. I e-mailed, messaged and called my most opinionated/creative friends and requested (demanded really) submissions.
