Ever since I met him, my friend Ryan has been inspiring me. He is probably one of the only people in my class from Roberts that is still actively pursuing his dreams in every area of his artistic interests. His charcoal drawings are especially lovely and this summer he was chosen to hang some of his works in Boulder Coffee off of Alexander (ahh I miss Rochester)
Best thing about this display is that you can purchase these and I got the one in the very upper left, the little rowboat from Turkey. It's gorgeous and I can't wait to have it in person soon! All this to say he's keeping me inspired to keep producing my own work and I wanted you all to get to see something of his!
Tomorrow morning we are heading out to Antwerp. I didn't know this until a few weeks ago but Belgium is not only famous for Waffles or Chocolate or Fries (which are not supposed to be "French" apparently Americans got confused at some point). There's another reason that it is famous, diamonds. Maybe I'll get some in Antwerp...? Not holding my breath but who says I can't window shop :)
See you on Monday!
