October 27th, I had a birthday. And I am 29! The celebrating started the night before when Jeff surprised me with dinner at a highly rated vegetarian restaurant. Yes, I am a struggling vegetarian with a carnivore boyfriend.
On my actual birthday we went back to Ronin gallery for the opening of “Colorful Rebellion” by Japanese mixed media artist Sebastian Masuda. I mentioned him in a previous post. My goal for the night was to introduce myself as an artist. When I first got there though, I avoided the task completely, and headed for the candy bowl and some hot apple cider.
I did finally get the courage to speak with him and get a picture. I introduced myself as an artist. Mission complete. My analysis was he wasn’t interested or didn’t speak much English. I think it was the second. He nodded politely and said “thank you.”
The following weekend, Jeff and I took advantage of the fall weather and walked through the NY Botanical Gardens.
Living in New York is so great!
My birthday present from Jeff came a little late but it was so worth it. I love anything colonial, especially pewter. Now I own some! Jeff got me a colonial plate. It is in near mint condition and has the mark of pewterer Thomas Danforth III on the back.
I couldn’t manage to take a good picture that didn’t include my phone. My apologies.
I submitted two applications for some art residencies and an application for a gallery show. I also got my table at K-Mart and had fun carrying it around Union Square. Working on my display. Things are coming together.
Thanks for reading! Happy Sunday!
