You guys! I am alive. Are you alive? How does anybody survive December?? It was such a busy and great month!
I showed four small pieces at the Kayo Gallery in downtown SLC during December. Hum, you know, the cute one with the hair, had been out of town for a handful of days and surprised me during Gallery Stroll! I was just a little bit happy.
Kayo Gallery is a hip little place that I've grown to love the past few years and I feel honored to have my art on their walls! Also, every time I say the name of the gallery I just really want to say "kay- YO!" like I'm in the movie "Bring it On" or "Save the Last Dance" or some kind of cheerleader meets gangster movie where white girls get hip.
Then, on 12-12-12, I got to share my artwork at an über hip house show. So here's the thing. I showed my artwork next to Brian Kershisnik's and a living room away from Cassandra Barney's. These two lovely people are artists I've admired from a distance for years. I can remember the first painting of each of theirs that moved me in a deep place in my heart that I didn't know existed. I had to pinch myself a few times to know that it wasn't all just a dream. Also in the photo, the talented (and new friend of mine) Andrew Ballsteadt, and Cassandra's daughter Fiona brought the house down with her tasty illustrations.
Just a little sad I can't do it all over again on 13-13-13...
