|Thanks Wilbur and Selena for sending me this photo. It was at Union Station. Unfortunately, it was taken off before I went to see it.|
There are more around the town, but I've been too busy to go take photographs.
My painting, In Bruges I is all over downtown in billboards and advertisement boxes. I'm very excited about this. Now I can check that off my Life Wish List:
In Bruges I is a special piece for me, the painting was inspired by trip to Bruges. I always wanted to go to Bruges after watching Daughters of Darkness as a teenager. Then in 2008, a great black comedy, In Bruges came out. I needed to go there. When I told people I'm going to Bruges, everyone asked, "Where is that?" or "Never heard of it. Why do you want to go there??" It is a beautiful Gothic city above water, perfectly preserved. It is sort of like Venice, but I love it more than Venice. Bruges has surprisingly affordable and beautiful Bed n' Breakfast places with skeleton keys. I was alone there, once again. After 5pm, all the museums and shops close in Bruges and tourists leave the city. I was strolling between the striking Gothic buildings eating Belgian fries, I felt happy in loneliness.
As a sneaky sneaky-little-doo, I sneakily linked the image to my Society 6 page. If you have a disposable income and like my piece, you can order prints :D
Anyways, In Bruges I won second place at The Courvoisier Collective awards. I'm very grateful for the wonderful people at Courvoisier. They kindly sent me two mini bottles of their delicious cognac. A small drop tastes like a burst of grapes!
My piece is shown at Gallery 1313 starting tonight, August 10th to September 4th, 2011.
Opening reception starts at 7:30PM.
