Frankenstein had a long awaited play-date with his girl-friend Daisy yesterday. Some neighbor kids came by for a visit too, so it was a super-duper-fantastic playtime! Needless to say little Frankenstein was all tuckered out by time we came home.
I posted a few more photos of the fun here, and one of him trying to get me to play just before we went to June's house.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

I had a dentist appointment this morning, hence the dental floss. The post card is for Jennifer Holloway Bopst's up coming art show at the Eric Schindler Gallery. The address book/day planner informs me that on the 16th the night of her opening I will be in NYC. The 18th is my birthday and also Frankenstein's Birthday (Observed) and two days after that is the anniversary of Mr.Eleven and I meeting for the first time. I love my desk.
My art adviser used to tell me to look at my pallet to see what was going on in my painting. Is it messy do the colors mix or are they all separate, what is the range of colors tones and values, is it visually pleasing, how well does the pallet reflect what you want to be doing on the canvas? When I look at my desk it is clean and ordered, and highlights what is important to me. Raw wood accented with greens and bright colors that indicate to me, I am on a good path.

Last Friday I was part of a selected works exhibition at the Schindler Satellite Gallery, with fellow artists, Lisa Taranto and Thomas Van Auken. I had 15 pieces in the show, most of them were painted in NY and a few from the early 90's I did while living in MI. It was the best birthday present ever, to show in such a lovely space, (my birthday is in 2 weeks) with 2 artists whose work I love and respect. From the second I walked in the gallery at 7pm to the time I left at 10pm, I was talking to people about art and listening to what they had to say. I met lots of artists, art students and people who simply like art, or had nothing better to do on a Friday night and happened to wandered in. It was an honor and a pleasure! Kirsten Gray the gallery owner/director is amazing, I truly-thoroughly love working with her.
The show is open by appointment only, but that may change (I will post new info if that changes). To contact the gallery for a viewing call: Kirsten Gray at 804-644-5005
Thanks to those who came out to see the show and to those of you who take some time to view the photos I have posted of it.
It was wonderful, but today is Monday and time to make some progress....
