Vegas baby, Vegas!!!

Heading to Vegas today, so excited!!! I packed a small sketchbook so I won't feel too guilty about my lack of artistic productivity lately. Maybe do some sketching on the plane or write down ideas after being immersed in such an environment for a few days. I'm also bringing My Love Affair with Modern Art to keep me entertained on the 4 hour plane ride from chi-town. Also hoping to check out the Bellagio's modern art exhibit up right now that was curated by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.

XOXO have a great week everyone!

clever blog title

An update on the painting that is taking me longer than it should to finish.... After doing the text I decided the background needed more work so I'm painting some layers over that and will have to go back in and re-paint the words. I like how the fade is coming along though from left to right. I also started the background on another canvas tonight that will be part of a diptych that I am pretty excited about. These new works involve fairly plain backgrounds and pretty bold, isolated text, which is new for me but I am enjoying the challenge.
