2588 Paint by Number

Todd Oldham's exhibit is memorable for many reasons, but today I'm thinking about how he used Swarovski crystal to recreate paint-by-number paintings (found in thrift stores) on the backs of some of his designs.

I headed to Providence, RI today to join two painters for lunch at the Providence Art Club. Founded in 1880, the PAC is the second oldest art club after the Salmagundi Club in New York. After visiting the galleries and lunch at the PAC, we attended the Todd Oldham exhibit at the RISD Museum.
