Pantone and Priscilla - An Arty Day In Venice

Yesterday began and ended with art. The day began with a morning walk, and the discovery on the graffiti wall that Pantone's colors of the year for 2016 are "Serenity" and "Rose Quartz", announced with a mural by Man One Art. The hues are BEAUTIFUL, and the skies reflected them exactly when the sun set. Gorgeous.

This display was followed by the art opening for Priscilla Witte, our wonderful Venice illustrator whose work can be seen all over town at places like Superba and the new Rose café. It was held at the fancy shmancy (and, as a chain, doesn't really belong in Venice) Alexis Bittar jewelry store on Abbot Kinney. I LOVE when openings and things are right around my corner!

The crowd spilled outside on to the steps, with Venetians cramming in to look at Witte's great pieces. I love everything she does, but this one might be my favorite ... flower love!

I checked out all the art while sipping on some champagne, and was once again so happy that with all that's going on in the world, people can still get excited about art.

Witte was beaming with all the praise being heaped on her, and it's so nice to see one of our own get their proper accolades.

And sales, as I saw quite a few green Sold stickers. Hooray for working artists! Witte certainly is one, with collaborations for Keds and all sorts of cool things.

Oh, hang on ... this one is tied for my favorite.

You get it. It's just all good ... as is any day that is bookended with art. Especially in Venice.
