Hello and a bit of Pics from 'Go East' LeBasse Projects NYC

Other than leftover (annoying) chores around the house, it seems that I can finally paint again...hooray! It's really nice hanging out with my family, but I do miss painting a lot. Now I could totally relate to anyone who mentioned how their hands were itchy to paint again. I just couldn't understand it that time. Now I know:)

A little bit of art related news. We went to see 'Go East' LeBasse Projects in NYC. The gallery was at Lower East Side. We went to The Met for Vermeer exhibition prior to that. Vermeer Exhibition is only until Nov. 29th and we definitely didn't want to miss that. It was truly amazing to see The Milkmaid upclose. Anyway, we went to LeBasse show afterwards. The crowd wasn't that packed when we got there but boy, it got cramped pretty fast. All the paintings from Yoskay Yamamoto, Tessar Lo, Edwin Ushiro, Joao Ruas, Mia Araujo, Nate Frizzell, and Eric Fortune were just beautiful. I got a chance to say hi to Beau Basse, the owner of the gallery, Yoskay, Mia, and Joao. I'm pretty much shy in nature but the whole environment encouraged me to do that. They were super friendly.
