Please join me this Saturday, June 12th for the LA Craft and Folk Art Museum's Global Bazaar, part of the LACMA's ArtWalk 2010 - stop by for unique, handmade gifts from around the world - or just to say hello! The museum is located across the street from the L.A. County Museum, and the bazaar will take place in the museum courtyard. 15 local and global vendors will offer the best in handmade, fair trade, and artisan-produced items... hope to see you there!
The fundraiser at The Beverly Hills Country Club on Saturday went great! Lots of wonderful items were auctioned off for iaedp, and the painting demo was a real highlight for me... it was my first time doing any type of art demonstration in public and I have to say, it was tons of fun... could it be because I'm in love with beeswax?! Yep, I think so!
I've been working and re-working a painting that incorporates a photo I took of Pann's, my favorite 1950s Coffee Shop in L.A. The building was designed by Armet and Davis, and is a great example of “Googie” architecture. It's such a fun place, and has made an appearance in films like Pulp Fiction and Bewitched, which was sadly disappointing but anyway, I can't wait to see how it turns out...
A small version of "Ingrid" will be available in the gallery
next week... this one was a special order for Christmas and turned out so pretty that I decided it needed to be a year-round optionfor everyone - hope you agree!
