Many, many thanks to everyone who came out to the Gallery Talk at the Principle Gallery on Saturday. While I wasn’t as sharp as I would have liked, everything (including the giveaways at the talk’s end!) went off really well and it was great to speak with so many folks that I only get to see once in a great while.
I don’t know if I can really ever fully explain how important these talks have been for me. It’s not only for the wonderful feedback I receive about the work which helps me see the paintings in the way others do but in the way it allows me to express my gratitude for the life that their appreciation of my work has given me. These talks allow me to see how fortunate I was to have fallen into this life.
So, a deep thank you to everyone there, including my good friends at the Principle Gallery– Michele, Clint, Pam, Haley and Pierre— who allow me to feel at home in their space with their warm friendship. You have all given me more than you will ever know, more than I can ever repay in gifts or words.
Since I was out of the studio yesterday and missed my Sunday morning music, I thought I’d fill that void today with a selection that gallery director Clint reminded me of this past week in a posting on Facebook where he played this song and invited his friend to identify it. It’s a song from guitarist Bill Frisell , called Ghost Town/ Poem For Eva. I couldn’t identify the song at first without a clue from Clint even though I knew that I knew the song. I have used music from this particular Bill Frisell album in an earlier video of my Outlaw series.
So, give a listen and have a good week…
