Full disclosure: This post has something to do with the fact that I just wanted that orange creature on the blog.
You know how some people have “spirit animals?” They’re usually wolves and stuff. That embarrasses me. But if it didn’t, my spirit animal would be a pterodactyl. And I would buy the painting you see here, with its pterodactylish creature front and center, and meditate in front of it daily whilst wearing hemp pants and a pair of Tom’s.
Moving on. Vermillion has an art opening this February 10 from 6 to 9pm. The show is Watershed from painter Karen Hackenberg. I’ve been to a few openings inside this skinny slice of 11th Ave East and they’ve all been edifying, illuminating, and truly fun.
