alex kanevsky

i was able to experience alex kanevsky’s paintings in person at the
dolby chadwick gallery in san francisco and i can’t stop thinking about them. the three i keep coming back to are hotel, bathtub with movement, and pink room.

i found a quote by kanevsky on vivianite that i love. it’s advice to an artist who is just starting out.

build up your self esteem to the level that might seem unwarranted. this will help you ignore both positive and negative responses to your paintings. both are usually misguided, since they come from the outside. be your most severe and devastating critic, while never doubting that you are the best thing since sliced bread.

I agree. These colors always make me feel good. They are also the colors in Aunt Trisha's new furniture!
