Hi! I'm Aubrey.
I am an artist based in LA (but from the good 'ol Midwest). This blog is a record of my life as a painter/artist. It is here to help me keep my place and motivation, ground me to learning and be a connection to other artists.

Travels, Arrivals & Cadillacs

Well, we arrived in LA on the 4th of July and spent all week cleaning and unpacking. This move signifies for both my husband and myself a decision to focus more on our creative goals. That means some serious painting time and more frequent blog posts!

I did manage to do a small amount of painting at one of the sites we stopped at along the way- Cadillac Ranch. This place is so much fun because there doesn't seem to be any rules. It is in the middle of nowhere (Amarillo, TX) and smells oppressively like a pig farm but there are constantly trails of cars and people making their way out -cans of spray paint in hand.
Perfect example of how this functions as a time-lapse art piece: Below is the family portrait Josh & I did. I spray painted my silhouette and Marvin's in blue and Josh did his own torso in black.
We walked elsewhere to do some more damage and returned not five minutes later to find that Josh's painting had already been accessorized w/ and orange hat and face. Hehe. Love it.
