I just finished this painting for a juried show, hopefully it makes it in! The show Finding Friendship has been up for about a month, and the opening was great. I was so exhausted afterwards with my new job starting, I never even updated the blog (sorry!). For information about the show and images, check out the companion blog; findingfriendship.wordpress.com; or lobotgallery.wordpress.com for information about the closing TOMORROW! I hope taking the show down goes smoothly, I don’t know what we will do with all this wood- maybe time to put up a ad on craigslist “free lumber, some monsters painted on it- nbd” .
I’m trying to establish a more regular scheduale to update this with work! Bare with me and stay tuned- weekly updates coming soon!

This is what Sam and I worked on today. The platform is going to be a stage, the paintings are on plywood. The painting with the brown circles is going to be one of those stands where you can stick your face in the hole and have your picture taken. The other painting with the red/orange body is going to go outside so people know when they’ve found the LoBot! We also found out the apartment we thought was being saved for us wasn’t. So that was disappointing, now we need to find a cute one bedroom in North Oakland, that allows puppies and nice couples. I think we are both feeling the pressure of jobs staring, art openings approaching, and the need for a home, but hopefully we can keep it together and continue to Find Friendship!

I made these watercolors during my collaborative artist-residency with Sam Weinberg, at the LoBot Gallery! We are loving Oakland, and have found a way to stay here after our residency. It is very exciting to be living some place so different, though I miss my friends and family on the east coast. The art scene in Oakland is very vibrant, and I am glad to be joining it!
These drawings were not made collaboratively, but are filled with influences from life with Sam. I plan to continue to make more for our show opening August 26th, Finding Friendship. The title of our show was inspired by my west coast cousin Laura Reyes and her adorable and friendship confused dog Austin! Her beautiful art can be seen at The Aura In Laura. Stay tuned for sneak peaks of the rest of the Finding Friendship show!

My family and boyfriend came and spent Mother’s Day helping me install my show. We were only able to do half of it since there were some walls destined for other spaces parked in my space. But how lucky am I to have such an awesome Mom and family!
