Gen Art Vanguard Miami

Art Basel was insane. I saw some amazing works. It was so great to see all these amazing pieces together. The best part was of the trip was the Gen Art Vanguard Art Fair and Charcoal Studios. The Satellite Gallery was there with works from artists in Asheville. It was great to see Asheville represent in such a huge venue.

The show was sponsored by Bombay Sapphire Gin. There were models dressed in blue green dresses in swimcaps walking around handing out drinks. And some of them did this amazing water ballet.........

....this is how they stir your drinks

Me and Sas Christian, she was so nice and I was super excited to meet her.
Doug and Oscar posing with some street art.

At the entrance of the show.

Here are my pieces dispayed in the Satellite booth.

It was such a fun night. I have some more pictures that I need to sort through but these are a sampling of how cool the show was.

Art Basel show.......

So Wednesday I leave for Miami with my family. I am so so excited about the whole adventure that I'm about to go on. Doug and I have been planning to go for about 11 months. We started to prepare and plan for it. Doug and I have wanted to go for the last three years but it was so hard to organize around life. I am so excited to immerse myself in art and absorb it all. The best part is I am going to have some pieces showing in Miami ( Vanguard Art Fair Charcoal Studios 2135 NW 1st Avenue Miami, FL 33127 Wynwood Arts District). My paintings will be hanging with some amazing artists. I posted two pictures above of my newest pieces that will be on display.

The one with the whale is a painting called "Tragedy of a Love Affair". It's about a girl and a whale that are lovers. The torment of their relationship and their differences drives the whale to beach itself and implode from the pressure.

The painting with the unicorn girl is called "Parents". It is about a girl and her dark relationship with her parents. She is the result of misshapen creatures. She is awkward and mysterious and she feels connected and drawn to the ocean.

Anyway.....I'll keep this blog updated on the show....:)

daily sketches and haiku .....

I have been neglectful of my poor lil blog lately. I've decided to start posting daily sketches. It keeps me in practice and keeps my brain breathing. I decided to accompany each sketch with a haiku. Just some random thoughts illustrated and verbalized. Each image is right out of my sketchbook......... here we go.

hotel tattoo

So I found some pics from when I went to LA last year. I stayed at this little hotel on Santa Monica blvd. with my friend Erica. We met up with a couple of other artists who stayed at in the room with us for the night. Mildred and Ert do a lot of street art and we soon became major hooligans in a wonderful way....Have you ever heard of hotel tattooing? Well, the art was all hidden, but if you looked hard enough you could find it.....soooooooooo....if you are ever staying in a hotel on Santa Monica blvd. look behind the pictures and under the furniture...hehehehehe.
