hearting artists

Melissa Contreras show 01

This Friday was Melissa Contreras' show "Sickly Sweet" at Black Market LA on Sawtelle.
I died over the front installation and these sculptural hanging guys.

You can view (and purchase?) work from the show here.

The Part Where I Shamelessly Self Promote...

So I've been working on this little project called "8 sisters": 8 4x6 watercolor/ink paintings.

The project came about because
a) I wanted to push myself to make a small piece of art every day for a week
b) I wanted to make some affordable artwork to sell in the shop
c) They were just in my head and I wanted them out

8 sisters
Yes, they are named after letters.

Please check out my Etsy shop to purchase one of the sisters or just browse.

all quite on the western front

Things may seem quiet but really it's just before the storm...

and sometimes I change my minds

So after looking at the image from last night's post I decided that I didn't like the frames I used for the mirror paintings. No sweat, I just dashed out this morning and got some that I like much better. Now off to send them!

work for Gallery AD

And of course the purpose of this post...

In which I display my camera deficiency yet again...

work for Gallery AD

I'm a bit rushed to get this stuff in the mail to Gallery AD in San Jose so here's a quick photo of them all together.

forgive me for i have sinned...

It involved a large basket of muffins, powdered sugar covered chocolate chip brownie concoctions and other sugary goodness... It's good to be bad.

But I digress...

Since I've not been able to post much about shows or anything else lately I thought I'd share a view of my little art corner. Yes, I agree it's pretty cramped but hopefully I'll be able to work in a better space soon (...).

There's a sneak peak of a painting that I finished a while ago but have had some trouble coming to terms with it really being "done" so I haven't really showed it to anyone.

You can also see my palette of water colors and some other works in progress sitting on my little work table/art storage thing.

can we talk about my new obsession with hand mirrors?

Pink Mirror 01

Blue Mirror 01

When She Needed Wood

These are watercolor and pen/pencil.

Work is really going to pick up for the next few weeks making it difficult for me to post and even more difficult to make it to shows.
That said, this will replace my usual Thursday Moleskine post but I'll be sure to post a new Moleskine sketch next week.

liar liar

So I did go to one art show this weekend:

Deth P. Sun 2

Deth P. Sun 1

Deth P. Sun at GR2 on Sawtelle. Nice group of work. Love it or hate it GR has been really important for young contemporary artists, especially asian artists and I can always get behind that. But really I just love going to shows there because it's close enough to walk to and gives me an excuse to hang out on Sawtelle and go to my favorite sushi place Hide.

I have a very sad feeling I will miss Audrey and company's show at Thinkspace on May 11 because of work. Poo is the only word that comes to mind.

If you like any one of the artists it's really going to be a good show as they are so different yet there are definitely parallels among them.

I have not forgotten about my promise to post some of the art I'm working on. It's coming...
