'Blender' opening night


photo by Andrea Shear

It's so hard being in Oz when my first LA group show is happening on the other side of the world. It would be so cool to be there. So I've done the second best thing and pieced it all together from random internet accounts, blogs, and other peoples photos. I'd like to think of it as a private investigation of sorts (when really it's just google... but there is no way I'm admitting to googling myself! omg - how narcissistic would that be?)

So, my private investigator (just humor me) tells me the opening night went really well - packed with people taking very blurry photos of the backs of other peoples heads, with a hint of art somewhere in the background. Arrested Motion gets points for having the best photos. I don't know how you guys managed to get photos of just the art, but you did, so you rock!

Daily DuJour gets points too, for having not just one, but two write-ups on the show. And also for reporting that my paintings sold out on the opening night - very exciting!

Hi Sis. I read the comments, they made me giggle. Esp the one about you blatantly being in it for financial gain! Hehe, yeah like you totally quit your high paying job to become a student again for financial gain! But it's funny, none of the comments really incensed uncontrollable rage in me. They mostly just made me giggle ;)

Advice, never read what critics write and NEVER EVER take it to heart. I say this because a critics job is just that. To be critical. They're paid to do that.

You on the other hand are an artist. Thumb your nose at what was said.

Pick up those paintbrushes and paint your worlds. Because quite honestly. This world wants to see more of it.
