I was recently in Beacon with some friends for the 'second Saturday' art gallery showings. This painting was shown in the gallery Open Space. I loved the artist's theme, which was aliens portrayed with an innocence, like the painting shown here. Most of the paintings looked like they were pretty simple, and they were appealing in that there wasn't so much to have to figure out about them. They were 'cutesy' but not overly so to the point where they should have been on display at a children's daycare. The artist said that she was thinking of collaborating with a graphic animator to start doing cartoons, which I think is just down this artist's ally!
