I'm headed down to Los Angeles tomorrow and I'm so excited! I'm such a travel junkie. Most people hate to fly but I crave that stale air, baby. I'm planning to catch up with friends and relatives and do some serious gallery hopping. By the time I get back, it should be time to reveal the project that Kevin and I have been working diligently on for the past few weeks. Life is good.

No, the Big Question is not "Does God exist?" or "What happens to us after we die?" It's far more important than that. The Big Question is "What the heck is on the walls at the Googleplex?!?" Do they have murals? Photographs of employees? I'm dying to know. For me, there would be no cooler job than picking out art for the walls at Google. I know most of the stuff that goes on inside the 'Plex is top secret but I really have to find out. I now have my mission in life.

Ok, I don't know if that post title is kinda cute or really annoying but whatever. The point is that the beginning of this month marked my one year anniversary of living in San Francisco. I'm a Bay Area native but I have to say there's a huge difference between living in The City and living just outside of it. I'm lucky to have gained an amazing circle of friends (remember that Minnie Driver movie? It was cute, right?) and carved out a new career for myself. I've also gained at least 5 to 10 pounds. Damn you SF and your tasty treats! Just kidding, I love you.

I bought this awesome little piece from Dana Robson yesterday. Not only is she a really wonderful artist but she's also my neighbor! She invited me over to her apartment which was one of the cutest places I've seen in SF. I'm quite happy to be adding her work to my tiny collection.
(I stole the image from her website 'cause all the photos I took kinda sucked. Thanks, Dana!)

We had the opening for Artifice of Form at Swarm Gallery last night and it was a great time. I finally got to meet Josh Keyes, whose work I have loved for quite a while now. The show stays up until October 14th so there's no excuse not to come and see it. There was also the debut of the Oakland Art Shuttle which took all the drunk-o gallery hoppers to the different openings. I think Oakland is really kicking San Francisco's ass right now in terms of supporting the art galleries and the visual arts in general. I hope we can catch up someday.

I came across this awesome blog yesterday. It features some really great artists, some of whom I know and others that are new to me. I love finding out about artists I haven't heard of and being reminded of others that I haven't checked up on lately.
