our firm rents art from the sam gallery on 3rd ave for our front lobby; this allows us to change it up every 3 months or so. i was super excited to pick this month's, since i'd been too busy in the past. the gallery is stock full of some great seattle artists including liz tran. while i was down there i was introduced to the art of gala bent. i love the combination of delicate pencil & ink with watercolor. her paintings are soft, feminine & filled with hair.
