My city is having riots. The mayor and then the Governor had a press conference and the National Guard has been deployed. Fires are being fought. The world is looking at us, in our curfewed, bunkered state. The revolution is being televised.
The painting referenced in the post below has set off the interest of another prospect. I advised him also to call the gallery. He was there when I dropped the painting off for auction. There's something about Eleanor Gatewood as Mona Lisa on the Sisson St. Bridge. I hope one of these goofballs brings a checkbook tonight.
Today I dropped off a painting for another Salon Show, at Maryland Art Place. It's a silent auction, first come fist served hanging. Then I posted a picture of the painting on another social media platform.
Within an hour an urgent offer was in my instant message box, over the reserve n all. Well the painting is already delivered so I advised the buyer to call the Gallery. I wish I had known.
The seedling peppers are ready. Eight plants were assisted into permanent homes in nursery castoff pots. The first ones are always the nail biters-will they perish overnight? So bells and jalapeños join some roasters, some Melrose plants, regular Habaneros and new this year for the parking lot, Paradiscum Alaku Sarga Szentes, a sweet Hungarian heirloom that resembles a pumpkin! The types that come a dozen seeds a packet wait for the certainty of frost free mornings.
On Thursday I hosted my own show of paintings. I sold a couple. I'd like to sell some more. Friday I attended an opening for a show in a college gallery about birds who smack, fatally, into high rise windows. Yesterday was Saturday. I attended a pre planning meeting for an international light show at the Inner Harbor. These two groups have opposite agenda for sure! So now, mixing stimulus.
I am thinking of glow in the dark fish.
