hanging art at bedlam coffeehouse

My very loyal groupie (in above photo ;)) came with me to visit the grand opening of Bedlam Coffeehouse in Belltown, Seattle thursday night. Not only does this place have 5 of my photos hanging on their walls (=P) but this coffee place has many other things to look at too. As we sat w/ wandering eyes around the space, we saw little wooden blocks spelling out their coffee place. So cute! But they also have all sorts of collective items displayed in their space. One of the owners was even painting a monkey on the wall as we were drinking coffee! How cool is that? ha! It's very inspiring to see these young guys open such a coffee place in seattle... so different from any other coffee place... very community based which is nice! So, if you're ever in Belltown, go check this place out and check out my works and other photographer's works that are up now too... =P "Bedlam Coffeehouse on 2nd and Bell"
p.s. i like their chai latte and all their COOKIES! ... :)
p.p.s. thank you to the couple who bought 3 of my photos at Bedlam! and thank you Ben and rest of the boys at Bedlam Coffee for being so kind in always supporting all local artists.

silly dog...

My friend Lea and I crossed paths with this dog who I name in my head as Patsy during our artwalk adventure in the phinney/greenwood area last weekend. I look at this dog and she just cracks me up! No matter what angle I look at her, she looks straight back at me! She's so adorable! The owners saw how excited I was seeing her that they asked her to do tricks like sit up straight for me... unfortunately, I did not get a shot of that moment. I don't know what her name is but in my head, it's Patsy. If you should ever see Patsy around the neighborhood, give her a petting! ;)

great day...

what a nice day today! last night was opening night for the greenwood/phinney artwalk and i didn't realize that this event would bring in so many seattle people not to mention my good friends and family. it was really fun to meet strangers from all walks of life and everyone's SO friendly and nice!!! well, i tend to think everyone's nice usually... but they are! It's fun and sometimes funny to see what people say about your works...But it's even more fun when people come up to me to tell me how they can relate to the image I took... :) Today, I'll be there again but probably not so much staying at my own venue. I think today, I will take some time to visit the over 60 artists at this event.... :) The above image was an image I took last summer inland from oregon coast. today's such a nice day... just like the photo above... :)

my art in a design showroom ... :D

I'm really lucky to have design & art consultant, Keri Schroeder select 4 of my prints to be displayed and sold at a modern design showroom over in Kirkland. The showroom is MDS - Modern Design Sofas which they have 2 locations, one in Kirkland and one in Pioneer Square. They have really fine, clean designs and they offer interior decorating services too! Keri has a great design sense and is really nice helping me through this exciting new process for me. I hope to be able to work with MDS for quite some time so we'll see how it goes! :D Below are the 4 images Keri selected to show in their showroom. :) You can also learn more about MDS here :

another 'first'....

I mailed this framed photo out to my very first 'out-of-state artist buyer' on Monday. It's a first so I'm extremely excited so of course I must have a post for this... =P Today, the buyer emailed to tell me she received the package! I'm so glad it got to her in safe condition. Thank you Kathryn for being a 'first' for me and your support of young artists! :D

those days....

This new image I've taken gives me a feeling of what I think my parents have in their memory when they first arrived to america. It just gives me that feeling...
