Mickey’s Halloween Party: SoCal’s Best Halloween Bash

G & T dressed to impress as Scooby Doo characters Daphne and Fred.

Halloween has come early this year! Disneyland’s got a fun new event going on Tuesdays and Fridays leading up to Halloween where you are free to don a costume, trick or treat openly, and enjoy the unique experience of reduced crowds and no wait time for rides! (At least, that is the way it was on the rainy night we went.)

It was kind of an amazing night with both T and I hand-picked by Disney staff to ride on a float in the Disneyland parade with a select group of costumed partygoers, and a bunch of fancy Disney monsters and dancers. What are the chances of being picked out in a crowd of hundreds of thousands? Anyway, all the kids loved our costumes, and we got frequent requests to pose in other people’s pictures. Now I have the unique challenge of coming up with an idea to top this amazing party for the actual Halloween…

This years art exhibit was a big success! Got to show a collection of my watercolors from Iceland, along with the poems they were based on. It was my first time exhibiting poetry, which was a little intimidating, but the outcome was extremely rewarding! Keep your eyes peeled for my book with the full collection of my Iceland Abstracted paintings and poems, coming out later this year. Much thanks to all those who made the trip out to Malibu!! -Gayle

This year I’m exhibiting 15 watercolor paintings along with the poems they were based on. The paintings were chosen from a collection of about 35 watercolors from my Iceland Abstracted series which encompasses poetry and painting. The work was done mostly in the field in moleskine journals—on location in Iceland. If you have the chance, come on out to the museum!

Cotton Candy Clouds

LA has been burning this week, which also means out of the destruction emerge the most spectacular sunsets…all the junk in the atmosphere is making our sunsets over the ocean look like paintings with cotton candy clouds and liquid mercury waves. I shot these in Marina del Rey:
