LA Artist Takes Manhattan

Meet Kelly Reemtsen (

I've known Kelly, a Los Angeles-based artist, since 2004. She exemplifies the working artist life and has been a role model and inspiration for my art career.

I was thrilled to find out that her latest show, "America's Sweetheart", opened at the De Buck Gallery ( at the same time I was visiting NYC. So proud of her and in awe of Kelly's productivity, the quality of the concept of her series, and the execution of the paintings themselves. See for yourself…

Busy night at De Buck in Chelsea on a chilly Manhattan night!
With my date, Rachel! :) We're both huge fans of Kelly's work. 
Up close, you'd swear she paints with frosting. 
Catching up with the star of the show and friends.
My personal favorite. That orange…amazing!
