Well this is just amazing. Here I am sitting at the kitchen table, drinking a cup of coffee. The windows are open, the breeze is blowing and the baby is napping in the bedroom. It only took us six months to get here, but I think Sadie is finally weaning herself from needing to nap in my arms. It’s not that I don’t love her needing me and wanting to slumber on my chest – but it gets a bit hard to get anything done when you have a baby in your arms or at your hip 24/7.
So, with my free time I will sit relax and write.
This weekend we went to MOCA’s newest exhibit, Art In The Streets. It’s a very controversial show all about street art -aka- graffiti. Many people are up in arms about the growing amount of street art in the LA area, but I’m a fan. We actually live at a pretty major street art hit up spot. The likes of Shepard Fairey, Space Invader and countless others have hit up our wall. Our neighbors complain and want it down, but we like it and don’t paint over it. We’ve caught several artists putting up their work there – they always get scared and look like they are about to dash, but we just nod and says what’s up and go about our merry way. After going to this show it makes our wall feel even more special – like we are a part in history.
Here’s a few shots from the exhibit.
Here’s my baby next to a Banksy. I think she’ll appreciate this photo when she’s older…
A few more Banksy’s…
If you live in the LA area, by all means, go check it out.
