I decided to try something different for my Christmas break this year. After finishing up with the Alice in Wonderland production in Baltimore, Brandon and I headed back to NYC for a few days before flying down to Fort Lauderdale to visit friends, hang out at the shore and relax for a bit.
FORT LAUDERDALE BEACH
BRANDON LACY CAMPOS
All in all, it was a wonderful trip. A few funky days inland in the beginning were quickly forgotten once we arrived at the shore for the remainder of the trip. Most of my previous trips to Ft. Lauderdale revolved around the beach, the patio of my friends apartment and drawing, painting and relaxing. This time, Brandon and I actually trekked around a bit and headed to the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale to check out an amazing exhibit of Carlos Luna's paintings paired up with a selection of Picasso's ceramic works. An interesting comparison because of their "exile" status and politically infused imagry but in my opinion completely unnecessary as Luna's work can and certainly does hold it's own. I stood in awe over his technical mastery his choice of subject matter, usage of typography in his work and the passion apparent in each and every painting shown.
May the new year bring all of you Peace, Love, Joy and tons of creativity. I know Brandon and I are looking forward to the new year and all of the possibilities it holds for us.
Peace - David
