This was the first time we saw Russ's art and of course love it. The layering effects he uses give the paintings a great rich depth and make them interesting to look at. Tommy likes the dark brown beetle the best and my favorite is the deep, bright blue beetle, although they look so great as a set.
One of the things I love most about being in South Florida is the art scene. Not that I'm into an 'art scene' per say, but I love that people care about art and there is always an art show to go to and get inspired! I love meeting new artists and learning about their creative process and what makes them tick. And of course, the more artist I meet and know, the more sane I feel. Over the weekend Tommy and I saw a great show at Iron Side(a gem). Our friends Russ Ronat and Marcelo Daldoce had some gorgeous art at the show. I have to show pictures and tell everyone which pieces I want to buy someday.
I met Marcelo when we were drawing at a Sketchy Miami Party. I love the colors he uses in his portraits and how the brilliant pigments just drip off the page. very dream like. Tommy and I both want to add his self-portrait to our collection someday.
Marcelo, me and Tommy hanging out
And there was a fire show! It got hot in there. A gorgeous gal performed yoga, danced and meditated. I didn't get her name though.
Russ is planning a trip around the World! He leaves next month. Hearing him talk about his plans makes me think of what I would pack on a trip like that. I can't wait to see what art he makes from his trip.
like the 'room divider'?
And of course we had to end the night at the Mac'n truck. Our favorite vegan food truck. (the only vegan food truck in Miami as far as I know)
They love me. I got my very own Mac'n hat! I love them too.
Francesca hard at work and Mark looking kinda creepy in the window ;-)
We had another fun night in Miami looking at beautiful art and hanging out with awesome people.
