“ I feel a very unusual sensation — if it is not indigestion, I think it must be gratitude.” ~Benjamin Disraeli
I am constantly blown away by how completely terrific people can be, rock solid, rock steady, and rockin’ my world. It floors me every time when folks travel to come to my openings — this last show broke some kind of informal record for “modes of transportation.” Some spent all diggity day long on buses, others drove across state lines, and a few flew down. I couldn’t have been more surprised if someone had clomped into the gallery on a the back of a dusty burro.
How to thank these hardy travelers? When in doubt, I make things. Seeing each and every ones of their faces at the opening meant so much to me, so I took the faces from the four Monster Martyr paintings in the “Monster Ballads” show and made a button set. It took a while to get them in the mail, but they’re finally out there.
