A day in Venice, CA. is often filled with synchronicities, chance encounters, magic, free stuff, psychosis, and plenty of friendly faces. We have been living in Venice (again) now for about two months, and it feels so good to be back home. Venice, since I first landed here in 2007, has always felt like home. What does home feel like to me? Freedom, warm sunny days, ocean waves, parks where children play, a never-ending creative display – from others – finding their way, and inspiration is never too far away.
It feels good to be back on the Scene. I recently had two exhibitions: The Venice Spring Fling, and the Venice Art Crawl – both were amazing! This year was the 2nd Annual Spring Fling, a free concert showcasing some of the finest local musicians, dancers, and artists. It was a warm sunny day on the beach, and it was so fun, I didn’t even mind getting a severe sunburn (I forgot my hat). The Venice Art Crawl happens every 3rd Thursday, from 5-11pm, and is the place to find all of the local artistic talent showcasing their work throughout the city.
With the Topanga Canyon Studio Tour coming up on June 9th and 10th, things have begun to shift into overdrive. I’m about to paint 20+ canvases in two weeks, turning our dining room into a controlled disaster (or, if you are an outside observer, into a catastrophe). I will be showing my work for the Studio Tour at Ribbit Tree Nursery, along with several other artists. Each year there are about 50 artists on the Studio Tour, with many artists opening their homes and studios to the public for this one-weekend event.
