So happy it’s Friday! I’ll be spending some time in the studio this weekend. Working on a test run of a commissioned piece. I’m super excited to see what happens as I’m combining a few different techniques... Not sure how it’s gonna turn out BUT I’ll for sure share some stories on #thegram
I’m also going to see @florence @florenceandthemachine this weekend with my gal pal! I’m so stoked for it all.
Be well Loves 💛
FRIENDS! We are SO excited to announce that Metro Transit and @ashleymaryart are collaborating this fall on the Twin Cities’ most colorful public transit stop, the Color Pop Bus Stop! On Monday, October 22, Ashley Mary is TAKING OVER Uptown Transit Station! 🌈
Ashley will bring a rainbow of colors to the station during this live painting event in which she will beautify the walls with her energetic and oh-so-colorful artistry. Riders and passersby will be delighted with this visual treat while they wait for their bus or take a stroll through Uptown. And as the colors of fall surrounding the station fade into the grey months of winter, the Color Pop Bus Stop will remain a cheerful site to see for even the weariest of Minnesotans on the most dreadful winter days. The installation will be in place at the station through February of 2019.
Maybe the Color Pop Bus Stop will brighten someone’s day as they stop for a selfie. Maybe the stop will become a child’s favorite part of the day as they ride the bus with mom or dad. Maybe it will spark a fun little conversation between two bus riders who wouldn’t have looked up from their phones otherwise. We just hope it temporarily brings a little bit of colorful joy into the world!
Join us to celebrate as Ashley puts the final touches on the Color Pop Bus Stop on Monday, October 22, 2018, 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.! Enjoy free hot chocolate and goodies, free ride coupons, snap some social media pics, and enter for a chance to win prizes.
Where: Uptown Transit Station, Gate A, at Hennepin Avenue and W 29th Street (Southbound side of Hennepin Ave)
Accessible via bus routes: 6, 12, 17, 21, 23, 53, 114, 115
By bicycle: Midtown Greenway Girard Avenue exit
My plans Mondays? COLOR POP BUS STOP. The title of this event alone is making me REAL SMILEY. I’m SO jazz-hands to share I’ll be live painting for @metrotransitmn transit stop in Uptown all day starting at 9am. I’m going to paint their entire bus stop (no glass left behind) until evening hits and I have NO pre-designed plans on what to paint, it will all be from the hip but I have a few noodles in the old noggin and I love to work spontaneously. They gave me permission to go “hog wild”! OK!! I’m thinking I’ll use EVERY COLOR because Minnesota gets real white and mucky soon and could use a lil rainbow action to keep the energy up.
Join me as I paint the final touches on the #ColorPopBusStop on Monday, 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.! Hot chocolate and goodies will be mandatory to enjoy, enter for a chance to win prizes from @metrotransitmn AND myself (stationery, poms, etc)

This was my first time shooting this beautiful city from this location. I was on top of a parking ramp that I had never even seen before, taking a look at some beautiful color in the background of the Minneapolis Skyline. There is another parking ramp a few block away that I have used a few times this summer, but I seriously had never seen this one before. I am sure I will be back with a view like this available from it. ⠀
From this view, you can obviously see the US Bank Stadium, the Capella Tower, and the IDS Center. The Wells Fargo Tower is barely visible from behind the Capella, but it is there. ⠀
I hope you enjoy this Minneapolis Skyline photograph, and please feel free to share!⠀

you taste like sunshine
just like you’ve been kissed
by the morning light
and I was the darkness
dancing with the stars
and our lips meet softly,
color erupting in the atmosphere
the absolute lightest darkness
dawn is breaking:
A fleeting moment when the sun can kiss the moon.
These are the Gorilla and Mandrill originals. I paint on Strathmore Bristol Board, which I love using. Getting these colors to translate well into a print was a process...I have more test prints of the gorilla than any of my other animals!
