I can't think of anything that's as much fun as painting, unless it's delivering new work to a gallery! Recently I made the trek up to Decatur, Ga., accompanied by my studio manager/photojournalist/art colleague and dear, dear friend, the fabulous Tracey Dumont.* We were dropping off my newest works at Wild Oats and Billy Goats, an amazing, pow(!) and very cool spot in the ever-so-art-friendly Downtown Decatur shopping district.
Not a parking spot for blocks, and we've got a lotta paintings to move! OK, park in the commercial loading zone, pop on the emergency blinkers and pray the meter maid doesn't own a Segway.
Love the window! It's just kitsch enough! Laura, our wonderful gallery associate that day got my paintings all checked-in while Tracey made a final dash to the curb outside to see if the tow truck had showed up yet (I think they're very serious about the parking there....).
Ooooh! Hand made pita, fire-roasted veggies and what I can honestly name as the best lemon salad dressing I have ever had emerged from the kitchen looking like this...what more could us girls ask for?
