I created this little piece of art down at the Ranch a couple of days ago for an art class by Erin Lee Gafill. It's always so fun to take art classes because it reminds me of being a kid. The particular piece goes along with a story I wrote in the beginning of the class about going through my parents records at our house by the beach in the early 80s. We were living on Pierpont in Ventura which was awesome during that time (still is a beautiful place, but it had a certain magic then).
My parents would play David Bowie (China Girl was my fav), Flock of Seagulls and Hall & Oats (I was also a big fan of Maneater) and I would dance around in the living room. I was also kinda of obsessed with the album covers and looking through their collection.
So anyhoo, I tried to recreate that feeling that I remember from that time. I remember a lot light pinks, blues, yellows and purples, not just because it was the 80s, but also because we lived by the beach so we'd have the best sunsets. Everything would glow down by the water. Good memories.
I will be in Hawaii for two weeks, but I plan on blogging from there with lots of photos, mkay? I'll be around in spirit :) Some news, I know I mentioned this before, but I will be opening an Etsy store for a limited period of time to sell some of my art pieces before the holidays. I don't have a date yet, although it will most likely be sometime in early December. So stay tuned! I will announce it on my newsletter first and then here on the blog.
By the way, is it seriously November? Am I really going on my honeymoon in two days? I cannot believe how fast time is flying by.
