I saw the depths of California in her glory. It wasn’t a pretty sight. People living practically on top of each other in these 800 square foot two-bedroom homes, a purple haze over Los Angeles—trash galore all over her white beaches, homeless people on every corner. That was my California. I would venture out of the city to find her beauty, and I’d see her flowers in her hair—the sea life running through her veins. I used a vibrant palette in watercolor to highlight the daintiness of California and how unforgiving she can be.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
