Getting ready for Open Studio- hanging my work and feeling nostalgic for the 2 on the floor that were displaced from frames to make room for newer work. I've put up posters at Rainbow Grocery, in the dry cleaners' window by my house and at Joshua Simon, a well-visited women's clothing store in Noe Valley.
Yesterday I went on a gallery walk in downtown San Francisco and saw fabulous art by Marine Jardel
http://www.martinejardel.com/index.html , Alexis Manheim http://chandlersf.com/ and Dana Harel http://gallerywendinorris.com/a.php?view=&event_id=103. I was inspired as these artists work on paper and canvas. I came home feeling transformed by looking at great art, feeling a renewed dedication to my path an artist; it's easy to get caught up in the details and preoccupations of mounting a show and forget the larger picture.
