Martha Rich Goes "Nutrageous" at La Luz de Jesus

Martha Rich just had an opening at La Luz de Jesus Gallery (here in Los Angeles) with David Sandlin on the 4th of January. If you have been following Martha's work and her blog you may know that she had been doing a painting a day over the past year. She's been documenting it through her website at Freedomwig. I could never do a painting a day. That is true commitment. I can relate to Martha's work so much because she paints all the things that make her happy. What more do you need in life? Support bras, cherry pie, beehives, afro puffs and beavers are the muses to Martha's imagery. Hope you all check out the work at the gallery or through the website at La luz de Jesus.

How come all the fun stuff happens out on the west coast. Martha Rich rocks and her painting a day was a great accomplishment. Now I must go work on my slacker painting of the month. :(

Welcome to the fun Coast. I lived a long long time in New York and although the East Coast is great, I think there are more great little shows and encouraging people out here than back east. At least more encouraging than in NYC. It's a tad clique-ish in NY and out here shows just seem to happen without attitude. And the community of artists here is good at support and pushing each other in a healthy competitive way to be better at what we all individually do. That's my West Coast sermon O' The Day.
