Today, my artist friend, Airy and I spent the afternoon at the botanical gardens and came across this miraculous plant. Many bees fluttered around with clumps of the brightest orange pollen stuck to their legs.
My friend Mark and I visited several galleries.
Museum of Arts & Crafts
An artist set up an area for people to create that includes scraps of fabric and other notions. Mark was ready to leave, so I very quickly made this tangled piece.
Minnesota Street Galleries
Incredible collages by Vik Muniz.
Today I just worked on preparing black backgrounds for future collages.
Airy's mom joined us and she completed this collage.

On the way home, came across this rad mural.
Most of you know that Sargent is one of my favorite painters and so I was extremely excited to see this show.
I love this visceral ceramic piece.
This incredible installation by Charles Lee explores black cowboys.
Today I just worked on organizing my collage materials and making black backgrounds, while Mark was on fire.
Mark's best collage yet.

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

Mark's collage made from my scraps.
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.
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.
