Breathe.


Dear Ones,

I am in the throes of installing my show at the ACME Gallery. Hopefully that will be finished tomorrow as Thursday my mother and sister fly into town, Friday is the cocktail party, and Saturday is the opening.

Will you forgive me if I go on hiatus the next few days to wrap up all the details, play hostess, collect my thoughts, and prepare for the big night?

I promise to take lots of photos and report back on everything. And thank you all for your previously voiced support on my artistic venture; it means the world to me.

Before you go and get all famous on us, just know that it is the "little people" who were here, leaving lovely comments. But of course, you deserve to be the center of attention, after all you are in LA - lap up all the attention and shine like a starlet living a Bloomsbury life.
I know everyone will go GAGA for your work/

I think you need to stitch your blog header - on burlap!

to be honest I'm rarely unhappy that I'm not in california...but this weekend I'd really like to be there. I would dearly love to see your show and only the promise of many photos, stories from you, and I'm sure comments in pubs, is sustaining me. I KNOW it's going to be a smash. have a wonderful time celebrating with friends and family. dana

The size of your works is really startling. I had no idea looking from the previous photos. The concept, composition and execution are just terrific. I'm glad to know about them.

If only I could be a fly on the wall of Acme Gallery, well maybe not, how about a patron with deep pockets and a glass of champagne...Best Wishes for a fabulous showing...can't wait for all the details!!

Forgive you for the hiatus because of such an important event?!.... Lisa, darling, I'd forgive you if you shot me in the leg and broke my favorite Ella Fitzgerald record (The Cole Porter Soundtrack). You, you phenomenally talented, beautiful, and intriguing creature, need no forgiveness.

I wish you mounds of success during your opening, although I know that you'll be received, by all patrons of your show, with as much love and respect as I hold for you daily.

Your faithfully,
s.

Good luck with the show! And congratulations, I know how much hard work this is!

Am waiting patiently for reports and photos :)

Errant Aesthete said...

Terrifically exciting! The thrill of it all is palpable in your post and the comments.

I'm reminded of Emily Dickinson who said, "That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet."

Best of Luck!

The show is so beyond fabulous it is worth the wait for the next blog post. Went back again yesterday to see the pieces without a a million people in the way, and love them even more than the night before. xo

There is everything to love about the show ... the work you have done and your workspace.


LOVE this. It's a wonderful and satisfying experience and the use of needles and thread, all that time (and work) whilst commenting on beauty by needle.

Really, really appreciate this in all ways.
