My Podcast HourGlass on the Artist’s Story Is Finally Released


August 7, 2015 – NYC

My LATEST PAINTING – OIL ON CANVAS COPYRIGHT 2014 BY GIOVANNA AGUILAR

I cannot believe it’s been over two and half years since I wrote on this blog. Wow! HOW quickly time passes by, like sand through the hourglass (sorry can’t help it). OK. maybe not so original right there but I ‘ll share something that truly is, and it’s from my heart, my latest project, HourGlass – Time to Talk, an audio podcast that began as an idea to pay it forward by sharing stories about the artist’s journey—not just the work but the humanity. And while there is a lot of color on each journey, the variations of light and shadow flickering on life’s canvas not only define our individuality but also help connect each one of us to each other. So with that in mind my co-creator and co-producer Maria Torres and I hope to these stories about artists, across all mediums, can inspire each of us to move forward with wit, humor and empowerment.

Please see the release below and click on the audio file below for the first episode. 

Thank you – Giovanna Aguilar

Nothing like nature’s reminder of the captivating beauty that surrounds us, everyday. Fog provides a mysterious yet soothing backdrop to the winter-laden forest that has been  blanketed by its moisture, which the slippery ice failed to get.
