Open Studio was totally delightful- my friend Erin took this photo of me on Saturday. She came with a friend and did an excellent job of explaining my evolution as a painter. I wish I'd recorded her- it sounded so amazing. Friends came on Sunday too- it's wonderful to experience unpredictable pairing of people with similar interests. The greatest joy for me was receiving people into my usually solitary workplace. I'm looking forward to doing another one next year.

Yesterday I got the framed paintings up - I am so happy to finally have them up. The walls are made of pegboard and the nails just kept bouncing off. Luckily Todd from across the hall lent me his hammer and mini-ladder so that made everything easier.

Painting of the Stargazer scorpionfish ( lower image ) was like probing a lunar lanscape; he reminds me of Charles Laughton as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame ". He seems to embody all the world's suffering. I've been delighted with the idea of hanging him next to my cheeky pufferfish (top image) like Comedy and Tragedy, the Greek theatre masks. Sadly, the framers have no time for me this month so I'll come up with another narrative- I'll put on my recent (unframed ) work on one wall and display the older work along the other two walls. It was amazing to see the framed work again - I need sunglasses to look at them, they're so bright. Only 11 more days until show time !
