Another Opening, Another Show!

Show Postcard-Can you guess which image is mine?

Another Opening, Another Show!  ( from “Kiss me Kate-great dancing–with a young Bob Fosse ).  “Always great to be in an art show-group-solo-intimate-prestigious-what have you.  I always get a charge out of exhibiting.  I believe firmly that you never know what the benefits and impact of your work might be.  Sometimes the show does you good-sales! recognition! great snacks!  ( I’ll never forget one show I saw in Chicago-an amazing printmaker who designed the currency for the Czech Republic.  Oldrich Kulhanek. What we all remember was the food!  Incredible amounts and varieties of cured meats and pastry–made me proud to be 1/8th Bohemian!  This seems to be a continuing theme-cooked meats!…).

Sometimes, you may have inspired, amused, connected somehow with a person whom you’ll never meet or know. It’s not always about us.

I won’t be able to attend this opening-I’ve been having some ongoing health annoyances.  Apparently, my presence isn’t necessary. I don’t even wonder anymore. I always get where I am supposed to be.

I was tickled to discover that my image was part of the “postcard”.  I had this email from the gallery for days before I looked at it closely.  A cheerful surprise.

So, get out and do something fun this weekend!  See some art! See people!  Eat charred meats!

Gourmet Brain: Science Fiction?

Today’s Monoprint!  Woke up ravenous.  Fed the cats and birds–then decanted last night’s wonderful homemade ham and lentil soup into containers.  Made by my husband-he’s the king of soup! ( it’s great cold-eating over the sink ) So!  A food theme.

I love odd factoids about brain science.  Which should be a clue.  I have spent many an unprofitable hour looking for facts/explanations/justice? in the occurrences of life.  Happier now to think that it is what it is.  Move on. Enjoy your day! Eat something YUMMY!

The etching plate/chine collé on the left side of this print was hand-colored with Rotring inks–wonderful, transparent color. No longer made. You can find them on eBay sometimes.  The foods depicted are another insight into my soul (food).  Seafood!  Turkey! Waffles! I also adore tiny little nibbles-party food-savories.

Hungry now-time to start today’s adventures.
