New Watercolor Paintings

After months of hard work, the new watercolor paintings are ready!

They will be made into the next set of greeting cards and all of them will be sold at Artist Alley so there will be two different styles of paintings to experience.

Will people like the watercolor as much as the acrylic? Which painting will people fight over the most?

You never know what can happen!

Treasurefest

Yesterday, I attended Treasurefest in San Francisco’s Treasure Island with my best friend Sam.

Usually I attend this event alone, but this was the first time that I brought someone with me and it was kind of a last-minute plan. The only thing I bought was a white Tim Rattay jersey, who was the San Francisco 49ers quarterback from 2000-2005 after recently buying a red Terrell Owens Jersey during the last event. Both of them were from 1996-2008 and Sam said that they were the best uniforms that the 49ers wore along with the gold pants.

While I didn’t see Linda Cullen last month, I was able to see her this time and gave her some of the new Kevin’s Cards Brochures I created so she can have more information about me and potentially order cards.

Although I do enjoy going to art shows alone, sometimes it’s more fun to go with friends because they’re something for everyone. As I’ve mentioned before, Treasurefest is one of the places where I can sell my cards along with other shows, art and wine festivals, or craft fairs.

You never know which one will work the best!

2019 March Madness Champions

Congratulations to the Virginia Cavaliers for winning the 2019 March Madness Tournament! It was an intense battle, but in the end they won it all by a final score of 85-77 over the Texas Tech Red Raiders!

With College Basketball season over, it’s on to the NBA Draft for a bunch of seniors to see which teams they’ll play next season!

College Basketball is more intense than football because there’s a bunch of schools competing and it’s hard to tell who’s in what conference, which is why they don’t call it for March Madness for nothing.

I don’t know if my projects will relate to college basketball, but I have done a bunch with college football since a lot of the teams, conferences, and rivals are pretty much the same, but who knows what I’ll come up with!

To all the future college players out there, good luck next season!

Back to Baseball!

Today the 2019 MLB Season kicks off!

The defending World Series Champion Boston Red Sox will have a ten game road trip to face the Seattle Mariners, Oakland Athletics, and Arizona Diamondbacks, before coming home to face the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Oakland A’s will have a seven game home-stand with their division rivals the Los Angeles Angels and the Red Sox before heading on the road to face the Houston Astros.

The San Francisco Giants will be on the road to face their division rivals the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers before coming home to face the Tampa Bay Rays.

This year’s All Star Game will take place at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. It’ll be a long journey to see who will face off in this year’s World Series and who will be crowned the next the next champion!

If you want to find your favorite teams, check out A House Divided for the MLB and/or my custom made MLB Posters.

To all the teams out there, good luck and have a great season!

Las Vegas Tour (The Finale)

The final leg of the Las Vegas Tour included places I didn’t get a chance to cover until today!

First stop was a bird’s eye view of the strip from the High Roller Wheel. This giant Ferris wheel is larger than the one you see at the county fair and you can have a bar service that’s perfect for celebrations and get-togethers!

Next were the other two casinos I wanted to see on my last visit, but never had the opportunity: Treasure Island & The Mirage. There were also some other places I wanted to revisit, but unfortunately I didn’t have enough time: 

-Trump Hotel

-Circus Circus

-Fremont Street

-Madame Tussaud’s

On the flip side, I did manage to visit the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, since I wasn’t able to do it on my first visit.

Overall, this trip to Las Vegas was even better than the first because I was able to see a lot more things and I got an opportunity to go to my first Vegas Pool Party, which was definitely the highlight of it all!

Can’t wait till my next visit to Las Vegas and to see where my next destination takes me! 

Las Vegas Tour (Vegas Pool Party)

The Las Vegas Tour continued with a Vegas Pool Party at the Drai’s Beachclub at The Cromwell Hotel and Casino.

This was one of my bucket list items to do in Vegas since I’ve heard a lot of people have done it. The most popular place to do it is at the Encore Beach Club at the Encore Hotel & Casino. However, the admission is about $100 and the bungalows and cabanas were around $3000!

After looking at several casinos that have pool parties, I decided to go with Drai’s Beachclub because the admission was $30 and was definitely a lot cheaper than Encore Beach Club. Every moment of this experience was totally worth the money!

With perfect weather and a great view of the strip, this was the perfect setting for a pool party! They had two pools for people to use with a walkway in between each one, bungalows and cabanas with pink sofas for lounging and hanging out with friends, a bar with refreshing drinks to enjoy, bar service from lovely ladies, a DJ playing upbeat funky music to get the party going, and beach balls to throw around the pool!

Overall, this was without question the highlight of the Vegas Tour because I got to experience a Vegas Pool Party in person and met a bunch of new friends to hang out with! I highly recommend this place to anyone whose looking for a pool party in Vegas at a reasonable price!

With one day left, there’s more to see and surprises to uncover!

Las Vegas Tour (Casino Hopping)

Today’s tour of Las Vegas covered more ground than yesterday! This was basically casino hopping, going from one hotel to the next. Here’s a list of all the ones that were covered today:

-Excalibur

-Luxor

-Mandalay Bay

-Tropicana

-MGM Grand

-Flamingo

-The Cromwell

-Caesar’s Palace

-The Venetian

-The Palazzo

-Wynn

-Encore

-Paris

-Planet Hollywood

While going through all the casinos, I wanted to find one that had a pool party for a reasonable price because the Encore Beach Club was the most expensive and I’ve heard a lot of people go there.

Out of all the ones I looked at, I chose the Drai’s Beach Club at The Cromwell Hotel & Casino and it looked reasonably priced, but let’s see if it’s worth the money.

Other highlights included winning $11 on BlackJack, riding the Las Vegas Monorail, and riding the Gondola at the Venetian Hotel.

Overall, this was an awesome day and there’s more to uncover as the tour continues on!
