I was invited to participate in the I Like Soup exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

May 26 to August 19

I just paint things I always thought were beautiful, things you use every day and never think about. I’m working on soups, and I’ve been doing some paintings of money. I just do it because I like it.
– Andy Warhol, Time Magazine, May 11, 1962

From the Museum of Contemporary Art:

As MOCA and the Hampton Roads community celebrates the Andy Warhol: Portraits exhibition, we wanted to take a moment to explore Warhol’s idea of a tin soup can and the many ways in which popular culture influences artists today. A plain, unused tin can was given to a selection of local, national and internationally recognized contemporary artists. They were asked to reinterpret the can and use it in the creation of their own art.

Each original can is for sale on MOCA’s website (coming soon). The proceeds from the sales will help benefit MOCA’s educational programs and the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. With your help we can provide nourishment for the heads, hearts and stomachs of the people in our community.

My dad passed away on September 25, 2018. Missing him today and hoping that his spirit is connected to all of the positive particles in the universe and filled with love and light. I think the most important thing that I learned from my dad is that it’s okay to be weird. If there is a lesson for me to pass on it would be to always reach out to those around you, and communicate, tell your friends and family how you feel even if it’s confusing and might not make a lot of sense. And hug people more. And tell them that you love them. ❤️❤️❤️
