He was a man of his time, with all that entails, but he never told me I couldn’t be what I wanted to be.
He was raised by three women: his mother, grandmother and aunt. They all worked. Unusual household in the 1920s-30s.
I miss him.
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!
