Los Angeles art fair

chickentacoWe are settling in.  The key to Saturday’s endless errands was two stops to try tacos.  We first started at a green market we drove by in Santa Monica and had chicken tacos.

shrimp:fishtacoOne taco did not fill us up so we opted to pull over at La Playita, a local dive and try a shrimp and fish taco.  It hit the spot.

The late afternoon we went to the Nada art fair in Santa Monica.

It was a small show.  A few galleries we know and others we did not.

sharpieThis was kind of funny.  Sharpies.

The artist did an amazing job of painting people in daily events.

        Looking at the brush stroke piece above reminds me of this piece I’ve had hanging over my dresser forever. Still touches me and such a huge wink to the world by one of my favorite artists.(sorry-horrid photo)

    Pasadena– the home of the Chouinard Institute– has an incredible art tradition. Chouinard produced a lot of cartoonists includding the late John Dempsey of Playboy and the New Yorker.
