l.a. artists

this week has been pretty fabulous so far... it feels like it has been flying by! between interning and a couple of last minute diy projects i have been keeping super busy... i am going to unveil one of them on monday and i think you will love it as much as i do! my favorite interning task this week was when i was sent to the pacific design center to collect updated showroom catalogs to stock THE designer's library.  it was a fun task because i was able to visit showrooms i haven't been to before and check out all of their wares.... usually i am just stopping there rushed during a lot of other intern errands...

one of the best things about this last year is that i have met so many awesome people that i never would have had the opportunity to meet in my past career... a lot of them are folks i met during my many art classes while on the quest to "find myself."  the home of all these fabulous classes (weaving, pottery, metal smithing) is this amazing place called barnsdall... if you live in la i highly recommend you check it out! there's a gal in my metal smithing class, the creator of the beautiful cuff bracelet at the top of this post, that is so amazingly talented i only hope to be able to create pieces like hers! she was living in nyc and moved back to la a few years ago in order to take care of her mom, who was really ill. well, her creative release/ escape was our class and she just really blossomed in her talent! if you are interested in checking her stuff out you should go here ... it is all really really beautiful!

last weekend i hit a local flea market with a friend and happened upon my new favorite painting (above)... the artist that created it was hanging out with her friend who was working in a booth and brought one painting with her to sell. it stopped me in my tracks i loved it at first sight & i had to have it! bonus that it was at a super low flea market price! when i was paying for it i begged her to show me her others and asked if she had a website... she then told me that i was the first person to ever buy one of her paintings and she wasn't sure if they would sell! amazing! well, i gave her my info and asked her to send me an etsy link when she had one and here it is.

i hung it on the bedroom wall opposite from my fabulous hand painted wall & i think it looks pretty great!

and the friend i was at the market with almost had a someday chair experience like mine except we turned around at the car and went back to the booth one more time before we left the market and she snatched them up at a major bargain! they look pretty awesome and i can't wait to see how they turn out once they are restored!

so, a friend pointed out to me today when i was speaking to him that i use the word "so" quite a lot.... hmmm... i scrolled through my blog and apparently i do it a lot her as well... i guess you should all know that it is my voice for sure and i do write like i speak...

for those of you just tuning in and wanting to know more about me you can by going here... and if you didn't already know... i created a facebook page... check it out and "like" it! and follow me on twitter

until next time...
