They're here!!!

After my surprise cupcakes on Thursday i came home to a large, highly anticipated package. I was concerned about this but the gallery people are no strangers to bubblewrap of all sizes so the crunched corner was no big. I pulled out layer after layer of bubble to uncover these First opened was the flat one, my signed, hand-numbered Duaiv litho "Red Cafe" (all of these pics were taken without flash and are a bit shaky cause i was pretty excited; sorry about the crappy quality) Next was the smaller piece, a serigraph of Patricia Govensky's "Summer Breeze" I love the roundness of her lines contrasted with the angles of the city and the crazy, bright colors. It reminds me of Matisse. I think she is going in the living room. Finally, i opened my Peter Max "Angel with Heart" I love her. The color is amazing. I love that you can see little paint splatters and the masking lines. These pictures do the art no justice at all. You will have to come over to see them. Thanks for the early birthday present, Douglas.
