eat dessert first

Last week I hung artwork at Flour Bakery + Cafe in the Fort Point neighborhood of Boston. This is my first public display of my art since I started painting full-time last year.

I was so excited for this because I love Flour. After I complained to Mike that I still hadn't found "my" coffee shop since moving to Boston (I dunno, a vital requirement for any Seattle native?), he gave me gift certificates to ten coffee shops around the city for Christmas. Most of them still sit unused, because we visited Flour once and I was hooked... I like the vibe, the art and the incredible food. I already mentioned I have a slight addiction to the delicious Chunky Lola (which becomes even more irresistible once you know its adorable namesake) and enjoying one with coffee while seeing people check out my art was the perfect start to my week.

Berry Bread.... I. Can't. Even.

Aren't those yellow walls awesome? After breakfast it took all my willpower not to come home and paint our entire apartment yellow and get evicted immediately.

Well, you know... twist my arm, Flour.

My artwork will be up until the end of May. One painting has sold already and is being replaced by a brand new piece on Tuesday. If you happen to be local, stop by! I'll be the girl a sugar coma under a pile of Chunky Lolas.
