Here are three groupings of my paintings hanging in The Candy Store. There is more work in addition to these.
I can't wait for Thursday. It is going to be a rockin' party. I just found out tonight that one of my dearest friends, Brenda, is driving down from Sacramento for the opening. That makes me very happy. Lots and lots of SF friends will be there, but I don't see Brenda often enough.
The only person who could elevate the night even further if she was there (besides my mom) is Deedee, my friend who is about to have a baby any day now. We'll miss you Dee.
While we were in New York, we spent time at the MoMA. I was there years ago, before the move to Queens and back for the recent renovation.
The design section was wonderful. I loved these posters by Otto Aicher.
I thought this giant wall of doodles was David Shrigley first, but it wasn't. I loved it, but unfortunately I don't remember the artist.
The museum was having a huge Richard Serra exhibition, which was stunning. This is the piece that was outside in the sculpture garden. There were several huge galleries inside filled with his massive steel works.
After art, we fortified ourselved with lunch and went to the Museum of Natural History to see some bones and cool dioramas. It was a good day.
Back in cool beautiful San Francisco. We got in quite late last night, so I was a bit yawny today. Then tonight, Eric and I went to the studio and did some painting. Jenny and Jen came by (owners of the Candy Store) and we discussed my show, which opens next Thursday the 28th, 6:30pm. It's going to be a blast, and there will be a LOT of paintings there, because I have big walls to fill.
In other news, thank you to amazingly prolific blogger Victoria at SFGirlbyBay for the props on my cards. I'm going to do more, and they will be available at The Candy Store too.
We are having the best time here. The apartment we are staying in is huge and amazing, with giant windows looking out on the city. Today was the MOMA and the Museum on Natural History, and dinner in a little while (at 10:00 pm, how New York!) at Gramercy Tavern. Yesterday was all about Brooklyn. I visited Rare Device (but missed Rena) and what a store; it's tiny, but I loved every single thing in there!
The Renegade Craft Fair was great. I got to meet Sarah Neuberger of The Small Object and Emily of The Black Apple. ...Oh, it's too hot to type. I'm going to go have a glass of cold wine with Eric and Amy and Randy. Bye for now!
