- So this customer was my grandmother. 😂
She’s up there and age but still packs some spunk.
She came to me suddenly with a request. To do her orthopedic shoes.
They where big and bulky and all white.
Blain and dull structuring.
So this idea came up to create a feminine parter counter.
I took some old H&M shoe strings( you go girl).
Created a burgundy by mixing navy blue and green and a dark Red.
Use my classic them to fill the shoes designing.
Btw any purchase with my small business comes with a free canvas! Plus frame (optional) ✔️
She loved them overall!!! Just want to change the way Swaggs expressed. #GoodVibezDesignz 🎨🔥

In honor of MLK Day, we are sharing this work entitled “Your Choice” by Emma Amos which depicts Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X alongside one another. The work itself can be displayed in two different orientations, with one figure facing upward while the other is upside down. No matter how you choose to view it, Amos presents the two men as connected and inseparable, capturing the essence of contrasting philosophies bound by a shared pursuit of racial justice.
Today is your last chance to see this work on view in "Emma Amos: Color Odyssey."

“Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.” Born on this day in 1840, Claude Monet is often called the Father of Impressionism—he inspired the term that defined this movement. Fall in love with Monet's paintings in our European art galleries.

Happy birthday to Californian Pop artist Wayne Thiebaud who came to painting from an early career as an animator and commercial artist. By the early 1960s, he began depicting the everyday items that would become his signature works—baked goods, toys, gumball machines, and deli fare—rendered as colorful, lushly painted surfaces. See this delectable painting of cake in our installation "Pop Art: A New Vernacular."
