My Photography

 Photography by Tina Winterlik aka Zipolita


I'm Back!!

 It wasn't easy, let me tell you.

 I worked hard cleaning AND, CLEANING....making beds, cleaning toilets, commuting and trying to create paintings to sell, making soap and websites and social media....

 and friends and family helped and well I am ok. I made it. Hurray! I can breathe for a bit. 

Everything is much more expensive 


Which sadly is a really for many women my age, women all ages. 

So sad. I can't imagine an YET THIS IS REALITY, so scary!!!!!! 

Just yesterday someone was stabbing people in the tentcity, and a while back someone set someone on fire and a while back someone shot homeless people. It is INSANE. I HAVE NEVER SEEN IT SO BAD.

So for 6 months I am in Mexico and praying that when I get home that a bunch of social programs are implemented and the government and people show they ACTUALLY CARE about women, mothers, sisters, daughters, nieces, grandmas. 


Imagine YOUR grandma or mom forced onto the street. This is the reality for many women in Canada right now. And we are a 1st world country. Shameful Billionaires allow this. Shame anyone with power and money allows this. Shame. Shame!!

What I Need- Wishlist

 Zipolita'Z Painting Project 30 in 30 Wishlist Idea


Oh my I have been working at this all morning and I need to take a break. But wanted to tell you a little story about this blog and how it really started. 

I had this idea that I could take my kid to Mexico (to meet her dad- I came home when I was pregnant- was 9/11, long story...anyhow) if I could get people to donate each section.  I had seen some PBS show of some guy traveling the world with his kids and I wanted to do that with my girl. I believed at the time I had the skills and still do but there were biases and all sorts of things that would get in my way.

The general idea was I create a post on my blog saying what I need and a person would pay that part and onwards. I had a whole trip from Vancouver to Zipolite mapped with buses and hotels and everything. In the end I just didn't have enough followers or friends to make it happen and well we just made it happen on our own. 

Fast forward 14 years and I need to get back and that is still my plan. To make a list of things I need to survive and hopefully people will help me out. I am into bartering. So like all these 31 paintings I just made, you could buy them all and send me on my way or even a few or trade me something I need. 

Ok to be continued ...
