I made four of these triptych stretcher bars for #jeanmichelbasquiat in 1983 and primed them with black acrylic gesso. I should have kept the design sketch he made when he asked for them @thebroadmuseum

Artist Nan Rae, an internationally acclaimed Chinese Brush artist and author of “The Ch’i of the Brush”, will be demonstrating (at no charge) at the Chinese Temple at Greenspace’s Creekside Reserve as part of Cambria Historical Society Heritage Days Saturday, May 25th. Nan Rae, who appeared in the PBS program The Artists World, describes her technique this way: “It's painting done from the heart without sketching, or going over any strokes to make corrections. The traditional saying is ‘from heart to arm to brush to paper’. Brush painting is empowering and joyful for artists and those who have never picked up a brush.” The following day, on May 26th from 10am to 1pm (session 1) and from 2pm to 5pm (session 2), Nan Rae will teach students the basics of painting floral subjects using Chinese brushes, paper and colors. Co-organized by Cambria Center for the Arts and Greenspace, the fee for the workshop is $50, which includes all necessary supplies. Because Nan Rae’s workshops at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino sell out quickly, interested parties are advised to make reservations soon.

I’m thinking the newly approved @lacma and the #lucasmuseum will work well together #starchitecture #zumthor #starships #georgelucas


Linda and I think there is something...unseemly... about this wooden sea captain.
