This past weekend we participated in Acre Las Vegas. The show traffic was slower than we had anticipated. But, cialis usa viagra gave us a wonderful opportunity to meet many of our fellow artists. One artist that was our aisle neighbor was Axelhoney. Axelhoney is created by Santa Monica artist Melissa Contreras. Melissa is an illustrator and jewelry designer. I would describe her jewelry as sweet like honey with whimsy. Above are some of my favorite pieces. And below is one of my favorite illustrations Melissa has done. You can purchase her work on her website.

My New Favorite Artist – Tamara De Lempicka

My New Favorite Artist - Tamara De Lempicka




This weekend I went to the Palm Springs Modernism Week. It was a fun excuse to go to the desert for a day trip. I had never been, viagra generic and wasn’t sure what to expect. Overall the show was good. It wasn’t super huge but a lot of quality retro modern pieces. There were a lot of dealers with wonderful collector pieces. I was pleasantly suprised to see all the wonderful jewelry that I had new idea would be there. My favorite discovery was coming across this booth by DK Art Publishing, who had all these wonderful prints by Tamara De Lempicka. I love her art. My favorite is the Autoportrait. I think the subject in the painting has an uncanny resemblance to Uma Thurman in Henry & June, which is my all time favorite movie. I love coming across something that is very inspiring and her work did it for me.

I came across this French artist’s artwork on the Papaya Blog.
I just love the way her pieces have a collaged look and of course I love the asian influence. I have started a small collection of vintage tins and I enjoy how her paintings feature some. Her web site is here.
