Had my first love been the architecture ink........
I was about to leave a cute gallery/shop,sharing its already small space with a camera shop when I decided to ask her questions.
Me : So,how long have you been drawing?
She replied: Since forever.
Me : What kind of color do you use? It is water color?
She replied: Umm,it's some kind of architecture ink.
Not so often would my ice-breaking questions have me think more about a life of an artist.
A bright and lively gallery attracted me from afar before I even stepped inside.
Although You don't need more than a couple of steps inside to appreciate artworks in the gallery,I ended up staying there forever. Luckily forever seemed like a moment when I was there. Surrounded by myriads of vintage oil paintings, architecture ink posters, cards with colored envelopes or even screened baby onesies, I was a kid in a candy store.
I might be honest with you. I like this style of illustrations.
Wouldn't this, framed in a wooden pastel pink, look great in the bathroom?
Curious to learn more about the artist and her artworks, I extensively explored her site:
Here are some excerpts from the website:
"Photography was Connie’s first love. She began photographing black and white essays of her own family life to capture the concept of light in motion and..."
"With a monetary base of $5 and change, she worked as a street vendor, selling her illustrations as greeting cards with matching envelopes for $3. A year and a half of bliss flew by and so did her paper products in the Sausalito fog. A retail space was necessary."
Now I wonder how my life would be if the architecture ink had been my first love....
