i was happy to see a good turn out tonight at the reception for the color purple and my show of about 14 pieces.
there was wine and food and music. very nice. mostly i enjoyed seeing some of my favorite friends. meredith (big happy birthday) with her husband ron were there-- she won honorable mention....she has a small painting of 3 people, one of them looks to have a hairdo by an live electrial wire. zowie. i liked her other piece more --- i call it a cement piece because the color she used looks very much like cement. the shows runs for a couple more weeks if you would like to see it. i got third on one large piece that can been seen from the front window called "mild bewilderment" and another one caled "balloon max".
victoria was there, of course -- she runs the gallery.
denise and her daughter lillian also gracied the place. and a few others who spoke to me but i couldn't recall their names.
of course gastone (husband) and rosie (daughter) were with me. i remember them. my daughter brooke is working in LA this weekend and my son, jamie, is still living and playing in santa barbara. jamie call your mom. so, i didn't see those two.
tomorrow i have plenty of articles to write for the various stampington magazines. i will be delivering everything to them tuesday as kathy and i will be driving up to laguna hills. wednesday i will be interviewed by rice freeman-zachery for a future feature. exciting stuff on the horizon.
toni torgersen and i will be having a grand opening of our studio and show in october. i will post that later. we will also be hosting a juried show in la mesa. workshops are on he horizon also. i will give you a big heads up about that.
next second saturday of the month i plan to be at our open house in escondido - at joan irving studios. please visit me
