Minnesota '09

We're back from a little Minnesota trip. We had lots of fun visiting with family, picking strawberries, meeting new babies, running from mosquitoes, eating from the garden and much much more. Can't wait for the next visit...which will most likely involve a coating of snow.

Summer...At Last!

It's been awhile since I've posted here, baby Juniper and studio deadlines have been keeping me on my toes.  Now that summer has finally arrived and M doesn't have classes to teach we're starting to fall into a day to day studio routine again.  Fun!  This also has to do with having some pretty great b-sitters.

My Desk

I have to admit I'm not super great at washing my paintbrushes....or putting the caps back on the paint bottles.  This little habit started back in my college days and now I'm so used to my paints being slightly dried out it's the way I like my paint best.  A day or two with the cap off and the paint is at its prime.

Oldie but Goodie

Last year we worked on a fun collaboration painting commission for James which is an amazing restaurant in the Bella Vista neighborhood of Philadelphia. We've been meaning to put these pic's up on our website for awhile now but haven't yet gotten around to it, so I figured this might be a good place to start.

Matt and Wes stretching the canvas.

Here we have Matt painting away...just in case you're wondering, he does the more realistic glazed sections and I do the others. And yeah, I know, my studio is messy.

Hanging the painting.

...and last but not least, we reward ourselves with a tasty meal from the restaurant. So good.

Snow Day

Who doesn't love a snow day? Here's a pic from my studio window and also one of Juniper getting ready for a walk. We didn't get a lot of snow...not like the snow I grew up with in MN, but it's still enough to celebrate with hot chocolate.

It's a New Day

Inauguration of Barack Obama.

Line Skis

We worked on a fun project with Line Skis and were excited to get samples in the mail.  Check your local slope to see if you can spot them for yourself.

Baby Juniper

We've been keeping very busy since the arrival of Juniper in mid-November, she's slowly but surely getting used to life in the studio and especially likes sitting with me in her sling while I work on the computer. Now if I could just get her to hold a paintbrush.....


Hello, Welcome to the blog of Gina Triplett and Matt Curtius. We're artists, and put work related things on our other website. This is our place for the other things in our lives. That said, we're workaholics, so some of that will probably creep in here as well.
