Get out of the studio!

Last week I was so happy to get out of the studio with a college friend of mine. We went up to San Francisco to the DeYoung Museum to see the David Hockney exhibit. I knew nothing of his work, but I’ve found that I can always find something inspiring to fuel my own creativity. (Forgive my fuzzy iPod photos.)image

There were watercolors, oils, charcoal drawings (my favorite), as well as iPad created paintings. His paintings are huge! He paints them using multiple canvasses. In addition to the art, there were also videos of nature shown wall size across many monitors. I’d love a wall of monitors with snowy or spring scenes in my living room. They were so peaceful and beautiful.

 The most fascinating part of the show was the iPad paintings. There were 24×36 inch monitors with iPad art slide shows, including a video of a painting in progress. They also had iPad created art blown up and printed in huge installations. Some were full body portraits printed in about 6′ panels. Others were huge images printed in multiple large panels.

It was so nice to just get out and see something different! It’s so important to fill the well, so get out of your studio and see something new.
