Newport to New York

Home from VASE and straight to the Studio.  At the last minute we were giving the green light to create a 3D street painting for the Herald Square UFC TakeDown in New York.  Remmie and I love to visit NY.  He spend 10 summers there, when he was just out of school, working at a summer camp for mentally challenged children and adults.  So we were excited to spend a few days in Manhatten enjoying the city in spring….only after Julie and I created the painting, of course ;p

While we were painting the UFC painting in studio, we were also painting for a Lexus.  Lexus wanted a Sailing inspired painting to promote their brand at the Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race in Newport Beach, CA.  We created a Wall, ground painting with half created in studio, and half created live on site at the event.  Beautiful weather and big crowds on balboa island where the festival took place.  Check out our pics…

After we installed in Newport, Remmie and I left for NY to instal the UFC painting.  We were just there a day and a half but really had fun.  They day we arrived we had dinner at the Bourgeois Pig for Fondue!   OMG…delicious!  It was so good and it is such an intimate, baroque/gothic/victorian mix of style and ambiance.  We loved it. Installed the painting the next morning in Herald Square, right in front of Macy’s and as the crowds started to form to be a part of the big event, we made our exit.  Just a few hours exploring the city which was overflowing with tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, ranunculus…it was stunning to see.
