Marble Mountains

Slowly, slowly, slowwwwwwwwwly scanning all of my instant film from the past few years (years?! ugh, I'm so far behind) and I wanted to upload all of the film I took in Vietnam. These photos were actually taken on my first trip there in May 2014. We spent an afternoon at Marble Mountains, which has incredible views once you hike all the way to the top. But man, what a hike! It was a struggle to get to the top; most of the climb was in direct sunlight in 100+ degrees, but definitely still worth it.

Thoughts on Painting

Sometimes the hardest part of the creative process is actually starting. In college, one of my professors made us turn in 10 drawings every week. When I first heard that was going to be a requirement of the class, I was kind of freaked out. I mean, 10 drawings a week for 10 weeks is 100 drawings! That seemed like a lot, especially on top of all of my other work. But honestly, it became one of my favorite parts of the week. The drawings didn't have to be perfect or finished masterpieces, but it forced me to sit down and paint and not worry about all the details. Sometimes, even years later, especially when I find myself in a creative rut, I give myself the assignment to create 10 drawings in a day, or a week, and just let go.

A trip to SAM

There's nothing I love more than a trip to look at art and find inspiration. I went to Seattle Art Museum a few months ago and I'm still enjoying the pictures I took while I was there. I fell in love with a room full of paintings by Australian aboriginal artists. Their paintings are full of movement, color, and interesting brush strokes. And of course I had to see some of my favorite abstract expressionism artists, like Helen Frankenthaler and Frank Stella.

1.Wolfeboro IV -- Frank Stella 
2.Buzzards Bay -- Helen Frankenthaler
3.Anooralya (Wild Yam Dreaming) -- Emily Kam Kngwarray
4.The Yellow X -- Al Held
5.Piltati Tjukurrpa -- Eileen Yaritja Stevens
