two day art residency

I got a chance to crash my good friend Julia 's art residency at Centrum in Port Townsend last week.  I am calling it my two day art residency.  My wonderful blog readers know I am a fan of Port Townsend and this second visit did not disappoint.  Photos of the new work to come soon.

Featured Artist Monday|Gala Bent

I recently saw Gala Bent's show at G. Gibson gallery and loved this new work, specifically this piece, so I was thrilled she received the City Arts Art Walk award  along with two other ladies who I greatly admire.  More on Gala's work here . Go Gala!

Gravity in 3D is so Captain EO

I saw Gravity in 3D last night and kinda loved it.  There were certainly some cheeseball moments but it was a stunning film. And why the Captain EO video?  Well, you'll need to draw your own conclusion on that one but I am happy to jump at the chance to reference this little marvel whenever possible.

no more shampoo?

After a rather annoying day I would like to take a moment to reflect on something fun.  I recently tried this method of washing my hair with baking soda and apple cider vinegar from the How to Hair Girl website .  It's pretty genius, cheep, and low effort.  If you check out the site there are lots of good braiding tips too.

one movie a week - Enough Said

I went to see Enough Said last night.  James Gandolfini was really good. Understated, funny, sweet...all those things.  The movie itself was really charming too. Part of what I enjoyed about the movie was the shots of Los Angeles. There is not much I like better than watching a good movie filmed in L.A. while I'm up in Seattle.  Growing up in Phoenix I visited L.A. almost once year and spent much time in Burbank, Hollywood, and on Catalina Island.  Enough Said was the Los Angeles I know and love. BTW- This is awesome map is from here .  Thank you Wikipedia.

Daniel Mullikin

Breach from Alicia on Vimeo . My intro to dance class (which is not pictured above) had live music last night by Daniel Mullikin.  We were in the middle of a ballet unit and the music was beautiful.  Could I have a situation with live music accompaniment everyday please??
