I just had to paint the picture John took of me and Nancy yesterday. I love that picture, and also, it fits with my day today, which was crazy and amazing. I had a double feature with Open Studios at Sabine Street Studios, then a huge party at John’s to celebrate his 20-Year Retrospective. All of it was fun. I saw many people I’ve become very fond of while in the program, and there were lovely toasts to John, there was champagne and cake, and Texas barbecue. There were flowers and paintings, and even a very meaningful sale for me, but one of my favorite moments of this amazing day was leading Bobby the English Pointer by the collar and taking him to Lily’s room, because he was just too eager to partake of the party and the barbecue.
