Opening night



Last night was the opening of a show I am in with Deborah Weir and Melissa Frankel, called Three Perspectives. The venue is the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center and the rain let up long enough that we had a pretty good turnout.  I always find it interesting to see my work on the wall in a setting like this.  For some reason, I look at it differently, maybe it's the lighting, or having it share company with other work.  This red piece, behind Melissa, is something I was unsure about until I saw it on the wall.  It's called Silent Cry and was finished in early 2009.  I stuck it  away in the closet and didn't look at it again until I hung this show.  It received more comments than any of my other pieces and that made me feel great.

All the best for your show. It is always interesting seeing ones work in an exhibition, rather like having a child stepping out into the world.

It is a very impressive show and your work is so moving. Congratulations.

Wish I could have been there. Someday, you and I should have a show together. Your Silent Cry reminds me of a piece I also finished in 2009. But I like yours better.

Congratulations, Karen! Your "Silent Cry" looks fabulous -- glad you hung it for all to see. I so wish I could have been there to celebrate with you!
