Field Trip: The Frye Art Museum Seattle
Last month I took a trip to the Frye Art Museum in Seattle on the suggestion of a friend who had fallen in love with their salon style gallery. The recommendation was apt- I fell in love with it immediately. Of course, with 3 Bougereaus in one room, how could you not? I appreciated the mix of late 18th and early 19th century portraiture, and especially some of the wilder lesser known pieces.
You’ve Got Mail: The Postcard Project
For the holidays this year my dear brother gave me the gift of an art supply spree- because he’s the best. I meant to space out my purchases and really give them thought and planning… and then I walked into You’ve Been Framed on Foster/Powell and I just couldn’t help myself. Or rather, I helped myself, to a lot of incredibly fun things I wouldn’t have normally splashed out for, one of which was a package of blank postcards. I’ve been slowly working my way through them and enjoying the small scale and finality of them as a medium. Clearly I’ve been heavily influenced by my dark wave playlist recently- why name your own pieces when you can let Morrissey and Depeche Mode do it for you?
One thought on “The New Portlander”
Love getting the issues. You just keep getting better and better. Would like to see some “lighter” work from you soon. However I also appreciate the darker stuff and am glad that you are expressing all sides in such a beautiful and healthy way.
