AHhhh. The beauty of being an artist. Free as a bird! Headed to where the inspiration will find me.
I am headed to Holland to paint on a super creative decadent hiatus. I absolutely adore the Netherlands! The culture, the scenery, the history! I will be spending my days taking photos of inspiring things, sponging the scene, drinking “coffee” from the “coffee” shops, connecting with friends, designing some cool new stuff for a double top secret new project for Anthropologie. PAINTING A NEW COLLECTION TOTALLY INSPIRED BY THE NETHERLANDS!!!!!!!! I have packed 59 tubes of fresh paint. 20 paint brushes and I have two giant rolls of gessoed canvas that will await me in my makeshift studio in holland!
I will be staying in a cottage built in the early 1800’s in THE HAGUE. Ill go on fun day trips!
Vermeer, Van Gogh, De Kooning, Escher…..they are all Dutch artists! What in the hell inspired them?
I want to live the Dutch life! I am going to ride my bike! Drink Beer, eat cheese and dance!!!! and most importantly I AM GOING TO PAINT PAINT PAINT!!!!!
Ill be making regular posts!
