Woman Kind by Lauren Ross, Tonight 7pm POPgallery

Hey Friends - Here's my little teaser pic and a reminder about Woman Kind by Lauren Ross tonight at POPgallery. Lauren has been a dear friend, incredible source of inspiration and constant collaborator for the last few years. Always with a calming smile and a laid back demeanor (and her dog Maybell by her side), Lauren documents the life around her through her camera lens. Most notably for me have always been her beautiful images of the powerful women in her life, usually close friends and family. These images seem to capture intimately candid moments and place them not in the present, but in a timeless and almost ethereal state of being. As I follow Lauren's journeys through her art, sometimes I cannot figure out if the image I am looking at is of her mother in the seventies or a photo of her sister taken yesterday. And I must say that that it has always been the movement in her images that has spoken to me the most, always capturing the spirit of her subject in their most comfortable and natural state – never posed…always free!

The tumbler of Ms Lauren Bradford Ross

This Friday night, we will present the show "Woman Kind" by Lauren Ross at the POPgallery. Since Friday's show will focus on her beautiful images of strong women (hence the name), I thought I would highlight a little inspiration from her tumbler that has more of a masculine ("for the dudes") slant. Consider this a sneak peek into her taste-level, and please make your way to the POPgallery on Friday night. But if you can't make it you can keep up with Lauren on her Tumbler (hence this post).

And I found my shirt for Friday's event conveniently on her blog as well!

Mason's Magic Carpet...

A huge thanks to Mason St. Peter and Two Birds Fly for my new magic carpet ride custom shaped by Marc Andreini.

I've ridden a few Andreini's over the last five years, but this is the first I have been honored to tuck into the rack. Now it's time to get in the water...but Mason knows my busy schedule well, and before he skipped town, he sent me a text which read "Hope you get a chance to ride your board soon"...(translation: go paddle kook, that board is NOT wall art!!!

Silk flowers from the 20's...the Rads.

"Tile, hand-crafted in Ojai" was the wisdom imparted upon this ceramic crow.

Here's Fuzzy...

And here's sort of a strange clip of Johnny Cash "introducing" the guess who, or just a really bad editing job..."Anybody here see fuzzy-wuzzly loving cup explosion...
I think we missed it
Anybody here see the changing of the year-end emotion..."
