Sushi Love by Lisa Barbero
Happy Valentines Day lovely people! Today’s artwork is brought to you by the super cool ancient art of sushi design and pretty love hearts. Oh, and while we’re talking about ‘V’ day, I have some thoughts (as usual). ;)
While you’re out buying roses and Hallmark greetings, take a moment to give someone a hug or a kind word. Make someone smile, help someone out. Call your mom, send a lonely friend a funny ecard, bring sugar free chocolates to the old folks home. If nothing else, just be nice and understanding in general and watch how people respond to you. Then when your day is done and the night creeps in, hold tight to your sweetheart (insert fitting substitute here for single folks) and make sure they know how very much they are loved, cherished, and appreciated.
Love is more than just silly made-up ideas of romance. It’s a real force for positive change. Let’s use it together.
Easy DIY Valentine Idea: Take a paper mache box (found at craft stores and preferably heart shaped). If it’s not heart shaped, paint a big red heart on it or decorate it like a Valentine somehow. Place paper baking cups inside and fill with sushi (instead of chocolates). This is what the LOML is getting this year. ;D

Two more in the LOMO series - now my favorites. This series is named LOMO for a few reasons. Well, only one really, but it works on a few different levels. First, the acronym LOMO stands for “land of my own”. For me this is not only about the literal fact that these images start as photographic landscapes, but it also symbolizes a head space - an emotional landscape we all carry with us. I also get a little kick out of knowing that lomo is short for lomography, which can be loosely defined (without getting in to the history behind the movement) as a type of photography where color in emphasized. And these pieces are super infused with color. But…
