Decided to take a break from setting up the studio to get some sun(burns) and hang out poolside with a fruit smoothie and a George Bellows painting. #ashleybravin #studio #georgebellows #summer #smoothie

Just completed my first radio interview with Josefa Salinas of HOT 92.3. Tune in August 10th at 7am to hear about the research behind my paintings, the release of “Pavo, Finding New,” and how I got into this whole crazy art gig in the first place. #ashleybravin #radio #interview #hot923 (at Clear Channel Radio Burbank Ca)

Pulled an all-nighter to clear out the studio. Getting rid of over one hundred unsuccessful drawings feels like a much-needed breath of fresh air. Of course, now that the studio is empty, I’m getting ready to fill it back up again with new drawings! #ashleybravin #studio #cleaning #drawing #sisyphus

Couch ridden with back pain today, so I’m taking the opportunity to test out the new Pentel Aquash water brushes I got for field sketching. Finally starting to get the hang of it. #ashleybravin #sketchbook #sketches #watercolor #pentel #drawing #lucianfreud #study #art

A big breakfast of lox & eggs, toast, and fruit, whipped up to help me face a mega to-do list in the studio today. Art ain’t all fun and games (especially when it comes to the business side).

Just saw Glen Keane’s animated short film, “Duet,” and I couldn’t resist doing a few sketches. Do yourself a favor and go watch it. #ashleybravin #animation #glenkeane #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #duet

Feeling under the weather this morning, so I’m catching up on some sketchbook work and a cup of coffee before I head up to the studio. #ashleybravin #sketchbook #drawing #art #studio

Pavo, Finding New" is now being carried at Amber’s Cove, Lollipop Boutique, the Palos Verdes Library Gift Shop, and Nantucket Crossing (and online, of course). It is so cool seeing your work in store windows, and everyone has been so supportive and encouraging with this book. A big thank you to Ali, the author, for the opportunity. I’d say we make a pretty good team.

For more info on the book (or to place an order), please visit my website: [link]

The exhibition focuses on the collection of and community surrounding artist books, and will be accompanied by presentations from artists, historians, curators and critics on the history and future of these bound artworks. Hope to see you there!
