Here are a three of my newest pieces, they will be at The C.A.V.E. this Friday. I will post a couple more tomorrow.
Push Me Pull Me:
I know it's been forever since I've posted and I do apologize for leaving you guys hanging. I've been busy getting ready for my first Featured Artist show of the year. It's just next weekend already, and I still have so much to finish. As always I know it will all get done, but I'm really looking forward to next Sunday and relaxing after transferring artwork to a couple other galleries. I would say I'm really looking forward to next Saturday and the show, but I start to get nervous stage fright feelings and wish that I had a stunt double to play me. I would just hang around listening in. I will have around 12 - 14 pieces, all but 4 new ones.
So the quick info is:
Cannibal Flower one night show
9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
2323 EAST OLYMPIC BLVD
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES, CA
Just a heads up, one week after, on April 3rd I will have some work at the C.A.V.E gallery in Venice, so if you can't make it to Cannibal Flower - I know it's tough for homebodies like me, just one night, late and $ - I will have the work showing here! It's going to be a really cool collage and mixed media artist show.
Once I sleep for a day I will be back with all kinds of updates! Until then, enjoy your sleep for me.
I just spent the last two days on taxes. Each year we make some changes to how we organize our book keeping and each year we realize we have more work to do to streamline the process. I also keep adding more things to keep track of like sales tax. It doesn't help that my sales tax schedule is from June to June and income tax is calculated from December to December. But it's done now, only three new organizational projects were born from my efforts and one paper cut so I'm feeling pretty good.
A few weekends ago, Brian's best friend from collage came for a quick weekend visit. Tim and I were able to keep the whole thing a surprise. We went back and forth with grand ideas with how we were going to shock Brian when Tim got here but Brian ended up working late so we just got a tiny surprise in - still worth it.
They went on a scavenger hunt on Sat. It could have been cooler but Brian admits it was still fun. They had to photograph themselves at each clue spot. This one is at a car dealership where they had to pick out the right key to open a car. They surprised everyone with their smarts for picking the key out. Instead of just trying each one, they noticed that the cars had bar codes on each door and the keys had codes too. Tim read off the codes and Brian found the right key. I wont go into details but Brian ended up with an escalator bite.
We went to check out Art LA on Sunday. It was fun to see lots of different galleries in one place. We had a yummy lunch at the Santa Monica airport where Tim got brave and tried the Ants appetizer. Later at the show I had a macaroon. I was very disgruntled when the woman placing my order mauled something I had been looking forward too all day. Hehe. You guys know I'm serious about my deserts!
We ended the trip with Tim trying many different drinks for his beverage review blog. He tried so many drinks before he had to leave for the airport, I don't know how he did it. I especially loved looking at this drink with a little fruit in it. Last but not least he had to try the Obama water.
So Brian and I just celebrated a 15 year "dating" anniversary. He doesn't really take it seriously but for me it's a big deal. When we first met at school and got to know each other Brian asked me to be his girlfriend. I had just gotten out of a long term relationship and as cool as Brian was I just wasn't ready yet. Once I was ready and had fallen for him, of course he wasn't ready. We went back and forth like this for the next year and a half. I told myself if he ever asked me again, if were ever in the same mindset again, I was going to take the chance. Finally on Feb 9th 1994 he did just that and with a simple "yes" I changed my life forever. There are other directions it could have gone, and I can't imagine any of them being even close to as wonderful, creative and adventurous as the path I am on now. The path I have spent with Brian. This day will always have a special meaning for me and I will always celebrate it as a pivotal moment in my life.
