Greetings!

      I hope everyone is healthy in mind, body and soul.  Social distancing and being isolated from loved ones has been most difficult.  I started this painting at the very beginning of this pandemic.  I had the canvas stretched 6 ft by 6 ft and delivered to my studio way before I even heard of the Covid19 or Corona Virus and definitely had family in mind and being together, sharing in love, food and drink to be painted on this massive canvas.    

     I have finished this piece and I can only hope and pray this will be us, as a community, as a state, as country and as a World  very soon, sharing in drink, friendship, food and most of all Love and Happiness.  There are many symbols throughout this painting....Music, people, nature, particularly the bees and hive which represent community and the way we should work together just as the bees do.  I have food and drink that we share and the white dove to symbolize peace.

     I wish everyone only the best of health both in body and mind.  We shall overcome this and be stronger together.  I hope you enjoy this painting and thank you all for your continuous support.  I appreciate any and all feedback. 

         Stay happy and healthy.

Greetings, friends and family!

I hope this letter finds everyone healthy and in good spirits.  Social distancing, closed businesses and lockdown is how we are living and life as we once knew it has been taken away.  Usually this time of the year I am at festivals and enjoying the outdoors, wonderful artists and striking up conversations with patrons of the arts.  I think the hardest part of this pandemic is not being able to hug your friends and family.  I am a hugger, so I am sending you all a virtual hug and hope you all stay safe.

I was able to hook up with a company and offer you these cool face masks.  So if  you want to be a little artsy out in public I am offering these  Face Masks with my art.  They are $20 each and include shipping.  They are taking about 2 weeks to fabricate and deliver.  If you are interested in purchasing these masks please text me at 702.499.3984 or email info@nikijsands.com.  

Thank you all!  May you all stay healthy in mind and body, we shall overcome this together.  XO. Niki

These are cloth face masks made from 100% polyester.    Each mask includes two woven, elastic loops for a one-site-fits-all fit.

In times like this we need to reach out to one another and show kindness, empathy and reassurance.  I hope that everyone and their families are getting through this pandemic. This has affected so many people across the globe both health wise (mind and body) and financially.  

      May you all stay healthy in both mind and body.  

May Love and kindness spread throughout the world.

May the world recover financially.

Last may Mother Earth heal.........

 

I appreciate each and everyone and Thank you for all your support. 

I hope my art brings a smile to your face and comfort to your heart.

Spring Forward with a Smile!

Well, I just celebrated my birthday and I am starting my 60th year around the sun and I couldn't be happier.  When people ask me "how long does it take to paint that?"  I like to say it's taken me all my life to create that piece.  It takes years of practice, thought, mistakes, love and dedication.

I just completed this piece, I hope you enjoy!

Farewell to 2018 and welcome 2019!

Happy New Year to you all and I thank you all for your support and encouragement.  

It's going to be 2019 in a few days and I wish you all a new year of good health and happiness.  

A new beginning is starting for me in Abstracts.  I will still continue to do my figurative cubist-surreal work along with several different series of Abstracts.  

You must always challenge yourself in life, it keeps you strong mentally and physically.  

Cheers!
