It’s been a somewhat complicated day. I had some bureaucratic matters to attend to, paperwork, etc, and I was feeling tense. But then I bought two big wood panels and I worked on stuff for my show (I’m only sharing a teaser here). I also went to Whole Foods with my sister Lily and we sat outside and ate good things. Then we got back to the gallery where John was watering the plants and he and I got into a splash competition with the water hoses. I got thoroughly soaked and I could not stop laughing. We just love behaving like children! We have so much fun!
And tomorrow we get to do it all again. 🙂
And maybe tomorrow the panels and canvases I ordered online will arrive. I so cannot wait! I’ve so much painting to do!
Please save the date! My Escapist solo show is rapidly approaching. It will take place on Friday July 27th, 6-8 at 1218 Heights Boulevard and will be called The Platform. As in train platform but also career platform. Think travel, departures, adventures, but also those underrated yet nevertheless magical in-between moments separating the highlights of a trip. The waiting, the anticipation, the quick coffee you enjoy before boarding an early morning train. But also think of The Platform in a different sense: getting ready to launch, a foundation for new an exciting things, a different kind of departure.
In a way, I have been building The Platform for years now, and if you’re reading this you are a part of it and I’m very thankful!
I thought it might be fun to show today’s painting in conjunction with the one I did five years ago, when I first started blogging. They go together, don’t they? I feel like I’ve come a long way! And still, this is only the beginning! Please help me celebrate on July 27th!
