Working at the Gallery

Today I have been at the gallery all day. It is a beautiful day and there has been lots of foot traffic walking by. Not many have ventured into the gallery but enough to keep it interesting. One woman and her young son saw the alley painting, and asked me where it was. They were going to ride their bikes over to Harvard Gulch to discover it! And she wants an alley painting! She just can't afford this one... Still, it is refreshing to see the enthusiasm she showed for my work and how excited they both were.

I also recieved a call from an old friend of mine. I have not heard from him or seen him in 25 years. He saw the little article that was printed in the Washington Park Profile for my opening and called the gallery. What a coincidence that I just happened to be working here today. His name is Sal Ruibals, and he is an amazing stained glass artist. If ever you need a window, let me know and I will hook you up! I own 5 or so, myself.

This past week, my daughter and I were in Taos for one night. I went out early to do a painting before breakfast, wiped it off, had 20" left so did this sketch. I took it with me to the gallery today but didn't get a chance to work on it. So be it.

Glad you and Sal reconnected after so many years. Maybe that could be the subject of another blog, how art connects us all. It connects us to each other, to places, to moments in time.

Good Idea, Aloha Sistah. I will take that under advisement.
