 Been having fun making stretched canvas prints  http://bit.ly/rebeccasilusshop  Driveway, Los Angeles #fieldofficethumbnails
 New print in the shop!   #fieldofficesketchbook
 Finally—original paintings in the shop! 6 x 6" on Gessobord. Link in profile or go to bit.ly/abstracthollywood #fieldofficethumbnails  It's a holiday in Germany today. And even though I've been working at my desk all day, it still does have that holiday feeling in the air.
 New print in the shop: Nye's Polonaise Room. After 66 years in business, the beloved Minneapolis piano bar, polka dance floor, and restaurant closed its doors in 2016. Shop link in profile.
 I started a comic about the past called @aforeigncountry and broke down the 1920s barn dance scene for the second installment. Read it at aforeigncountry.com!  Nye's had a 67 year run before closing last year. The kind of place where the lady who presided over the piano bar started when she was 31 and was still there 49 years later. A favorite memory is watching a roommate from Iowa dance a mean polka with an elderly gentleman to a live band.
 Best thing about operating a nomadic painting studio for several years: paring supplies down to absolute essentials.  Blueberry doodle.
