The opening reception for my art show at the Caffé Phoenix went very well last night. I was very happy to see so many people attend that I actually know. I was also happy to see a number of people come that I did not know, as well as a few pleasantly surprising pop-ins from folks I had not seen in a while.
The above photos are a couple of quick snapshots of the new work. I'll be taking better photos of the new paintings soon and posting them for you to enjoy (presumably). Until then you'll have to go down to the Phoenix to seem them!
And now for the candid shots of unsuspecting patrons from the reception. Photos are courtesy of the lovely Nikki, and probably the reason why I seem to be in so many of them. Sorry about that.
Shawn, Gwenyfar, and Austin being very supportive and probably rather tired at this point. I know I was.
James, my mother Eva, and some four-eyed nerd. No idea where he came from.
The lovely Wendy, wearing a very awesome top, and that guy again. Why does he keep monopolizing the camera shots?
Hiroshi-san, Georgia, that weirdo, and Tenney. It's always nice to have the support of your colleagues, eh? And that's all folks. There were a couple other shots that didn't turn out, so that's the most of it. I'm just happy Nikki took the liberty of operating the camera, since I was too busy yackin away.
A huge thank you to everyone who came out to support us. Your presence means a great deal to me, and I very much appreciate it!
Update: Just discovered the little write up in Currents. I would like to thank Isabel Heblich for putting that together. You can view it online here.
