Last year, Art Basel. This year, Dali Museum.

This past week, we took a >much needed< trip to Clearwater, Florida. I had a great time soaking up the sun with Elvis Presley, Salvador Dali, and some of my familia.

Blasting Elvis radio on the way to St. Petersburg fueled my excitement even more. We spent hours walking through galleries of the Salvador Dali Museum. Dali was a genius. The Spanish artist combined his interest of natural science and mathematics in his painting. His level of meticulousness can only be seen by viewing his work in person. Also interesting to learn, to much of his father’s dismay of choosing to be an artist, Dali continued painting throughout his lifetime. His choice of color, technique, and relentless rebellion of conventionalism left me inspired. Of course, we ended the day with Little Ashes (2008).
