Stella Im Hultberg has a new show of her exquisite paintings opening Friday at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles. Previously, Hultberg's media-of-choice have been ink and watercolors on tea-stained paper. These new pieces are oil on canvas. The show runs through September 5.

You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]
