It could be anything: building/space/food/drink/animal. I'll be painting 10 originals that will be available exclusively at the show...so this is your chance to have your say.

#ANTSinLA will run from 19 May - 10 June 2017 at @galleries1988.

Welp, there's only going to be 10 originals on show and for sale, and 110 (different?) prints. First were the palm trees, second is the Hollywood sign. If the trend continues, I'm guessing all 10 may be LA related.

She actually said "1/10" in her palm tree post, but I didn't read into it at the time. Maybe she'll have "paintings NOT inspired by Los Angeles" too, but I think that's stretching it too far haha. I could be wrong, just how how I interpreted it.

Visited the gallery to check out the show and maybe purchase an original. Yes, only 10 originals for sale for 1k each. Re: the giclees, they had one of each for sale. Each was framed and numbered 1/5 AP for $150. I asked how many prints would be in the regular edition for each, since they were selling APs and the gallery had no idea. what a joke.....

$1K for those? Better start adding hundreds to those pennies for size reference next time.
