I am so inspired….


I had the most inspiring visit at the Virginia museum of fine arts today. (I am so blessed to have such a fine museum right here in Richmond ). There is a special exhibition of work from Kehinde Wiley. I literally walked around with my mouth open in awe. His paintings are based on transforming historical portraits, with black people as the main subject and creating a really interesting juxtaposition of colors and context. His work is mainly oil on canvas. His use of color is out of this world. I just want to stand there and stare all day long! And the skin tones… Wow. I am so inspired. Need to do some painting RIGHT NOW 💃💃💃
