Open Studios. This Weekend. We're so ready.
It's been a whopping ten years that 3 Fish Studios has been a part of this program celebrating local artists creating original art, made in San Francisco, and it's made a massive difference in our business, and our lives. In other words: It's awesome, and we want to celebrate with you. We'll be debuting a brand new collaboration between Eric and our pal Paul Madonna, with super cool ceramics and original art from Annie.
Come hang, Saturday and Sunday (October 24th and 25th) from 11am to 6pm! In the meantime, here's a few of our fave things from the week.
During the baseball season I've been sitting in the red chair, reading, while Eric watches the game in the next room. It's a much better use of my time than time-wasting on my iPad and half-watching a game I'm not particuarly interested in. I've been getting through lots and lots of books this summer and fall and I love it! Here's my current crop from the library. (I'm not including Night Film by Marisha Pessl, because I finished it yesterday and was very disappointed. Her first book, Special Topics in Calamity Physics was amazing but this one? No.)
Thanks to Succulence in Bernal Heights for showing us how to do this. Fun and beautiful!
Need a quick nature fix? Visit San Pedro Valley park in Pacifica just about 20 minutes south of San Francisco. Trails range from easy strolls to challenging climbs. Schlep to the top of Montara Mountain for great views of the Pacific. Ahhhhhh.
I spend Thursdays at the studio with the gang, and *every* *single* *time* I walk through the door there are a ton of new treasures on display--basically, it's creative Christmas every week. (Me, all the time: "OOOH look at this! OHHH I love that!") Yesterday was extra special because everyone's getting ready for Open Studios this weekend, and Annie brought in some of her ceramics to sell. Holy wow. I knew immediately that I needed to make one mine. Each piece was my favorite for a quick minute, but ultimately I chose to buy this little dish and give it a very good home. I still need to find the perfect spot for it, but last night it sat on my nightstand because I liked looking at it so much that I kept picking it up and smiling. Pop by the Outer Sunset this week to nab a treat for yourself!
In case any of you were curious who really makes all the prints at 3 Fish Studios...
