Today we met at Atlas Cafe and had to be almost thrown out because we went so overtime. Sorry pics are so blurry.

Research on Artist
Back in October of last year, I visited the Toledo Art Museum and discovered the artist, Ralph Albert Blakelock, who I instantly fell in love with. He sadly spent many years in a mental institution. Tonight I reviewed his work online.
My friend and I screwed around making paper after visiting the museum. It was really fun and I'm excited to try integrating spices into the paper.
Museum attended - Guo Pei
I was not surprised that I'd love this show. It is completely over the top and decadent.
I had to revisit a few of my favorite paintings as well.
My friend and I stopped by the piers and I snapped a few pics. I played with low res pics and blurring.

Art quilt detail
I have worked in many wood shops and this just looks like one of the scrap bins.

Once a year, the de Young Museum hosts an event where they invite florists to bring in flower arrangements to compliment some of the artworks.
Afterward, my friend Airy and I sketched.

Xmas Break - Visit Museum & Galleries
During my recent trip to the MidWest, I saw a beautiful drawing by Theodore Roszak, one of my favorite sculptors. Tonight I spent some time revisiting his work.
SKETCHING at the Park
Today, while standing in line for Free Farm, I quickly sketched the tents. Not great.
I then headed over to the Mission Gardens and stared at an acrylic cube for a really long time. I struggled trying to get the angles and proportions correct. Another one that is not good.
Gallery Shows & Street Art
I honestly felt that some of the street art I stumbled upon was more interesting than many things in the art galleries. However, I found this drawing that I fell in love with.
Toledo Art Museum
John Singer Sargent is one of my favorite painters.
Rembrandt may be my very favorite painter.
I want to research this artist more. This extremely black painting was my favorite of the day.

ART GALLERY VISIT - WILMINGTON, NC
Toledo Glass Museum
Fort Wayne Art Museum
Today my mom and I hit the art museum during my MidWest visit. I've been really excited to see the Alphonse Mucha exhibit. No picture were allowed, but I've included ones I found on the internet.
I was really excited to see a drawing by Theodore Roszak because I've only ever seen his sculpture.
Here is an example of one of my favorite pieces by Theodore Roszak.
A good friend's son recently died, so I painted a portrait. I'm unhappy with the way the mouth turned out, but I like his hair. It took me a long time because every time I sat down to paint his picture, I became overwhelmed with emotion. To help me, I turned the picture upside down and painted this way.
