The Horowitz’s

By Janice Bremec Blum

Moxie Bright’s Renee Dalo, giggles when telling the story of being a guest at a wedding with her husband Joe who went to the reception bar and came back with a glass of gin. No mixer, just gin. “It was all they had!” And why? Because Dalo discovered that the bride spent her wedding budget on a $12,000 gown with nothing left for the party. “Something that I have learned along the way is to never compromise the experience of your guests in favor of a luxury choice.”

With a background in catering, Dalo understands firsthand how to run a party but more importantly, as the guest of that all gin wedding, she really understands the plight of the party attendees. “I always ask these questions; is this welcoming for the guest? Is this going to be comfortable for the guest? Are they having a good time, are they hungry, thirsty, bored?”

Assuming that everyone at your wedding loves plain gin is surely a question that Dalo would have loved to have asked the bride donned in a pricey gown. “Everyone enjoys beautiful things but those things can’t be enjoyed if you’re thirsty or starving or annoyed or cold” says Dalo. “If you have a gorgeous outdoor wedding with no heaters, no one is going to remember how gorgeous it was, they are only going to remember how cold they were.” Wise words indeed!

“I’ve been told that I have a golden and magnetic aura, and love that description which I hope to always live up to. I think of myself as a 68 year old petite woman with the heart and energy of a child. I’m always open and love to embrace new ideas, and creative challenges.”

…Alexander Dillon told TribeLA Magazine that she took the burned brushed home, and at first, she didn’t know what to do with them. She played with them turning them back and forth … then she began to paint and stories evolved. With all of her brushes, “They show up and tell me who they are,” she says. Working on each piece over the course of several days, she finds the emotion and personality of her characters. The results are beautiful and engaging faces, often reminiscent of Roman-Egyptian mummy portraits or Baroque painting. “I’m influenced by the art of every era”, she says.
