Trip to Richmond: Frame Shop and Exploration

This past weekend I went to Richmond with Ben and his parents - they picked up a framed collage that I was commissioned to do. I also wanted to get a better look at the city since I'm thinking about going back to school to get my MFA, and I've heard such good things about VCU.

I like the way frame shops look - there's something artistic and appealing about all the frame samples that line the walls.

We also strolled around the city, grabbing a bite to eat at Joe's Inn where some of us got breakfast for lunch. On the side of the restaurant, there were a few murals done by a nonprofit organization that works with kids.

We thought this part of the mural was particularly amusing - it looks like a bear shark/cat shark.

That's all for now. I'm actually headed up north tomorrow to NYC. And now I'm off to work on studio art for the day since I've spent the week reworking the structure of my website.
