other things on walls

Last weekend I was invited to see Sage Vaughn's show at the Known Gallery in West Hollywood.

You can read about the show on the gallery's website but basically the textiles are based on recent collage work that Sage has been working on. Interesting theme for sure.











The textiles were $300 each and there were 3 of each design. My lucky friend Mitra snagged this one:

I heart



Inspired by this upcoming Valentine's day I created some heart paintings in watercolor. They are each original, unique and cut straight from my 7x10" archival Arches watercolor block.

This would make an awesome Valentine's day or any occasion gift for a friend, partner or family member and would be adorable framed in a nursery.

the walk

It's been forever since I've done a post about art shows. I haven't been to any notable art shows/walks in quite sometime. I'd like to say it's just a result of being a busy mom but the truth is that I needed space from the whole scene for a little while.
Last night I dragged my daughter out with me for her first art walk in Culver City and was pleased to find that she loved it. I was happy to see some art in person.

The main event for me was the Esao Andrews and Allison Sommers show at Thinkspace. Here are some of my favs:

I really love this piece.

I didn't get a good pic of the tiny matchboxes but they were awesome and you can see them along with the rest of the work here.

We happened upon the Koplin Del Rio Gallery and got to see some work by Kenny Harris who I had never heard of but we really liked how he displayed his studies and sketches along with the final work.

And special bonus image of my daughter running around the gallery.

It's nice to be posting again in this space for anyone who is still listening. I toyed with the idea of trashing this blog and starting over but I'm not quite done here. Maybe Tumblr would be a good option? Any thoughts are appreciated.
