chasing one's tale [if one had one]

hello disney hall

in case you didn't get enough of the blue sky from the last set of photos.

what to tell you? let's make a list ::

you say potato, i say pot-ta-to, let's have gelato

over 100 flavors of gelato!!!!

1. eating desserts and laughing till you cheeks hurt are very good things. till next time wenders , ky , christine [happy anniversary!!], regina [who does great voices], and ms. blackburn who, by the way, made this cake and sangria [dangerous stuff that sangria]:

polenta cake with blood red oranges

2. meeting melissa was like seeing an old friend. we must have known each other in another life.... seeing her gallery space made me excited and nervous about the show i'm going to have there. [in october - please come!!]

3. seeing the andrea zittel show restored my faith in art. oh my was that ever one of the most lovely shows i've seen. what i respond to most in her work is the fact that she is so incredibly conceptual and intellectual and responsible. her ideas are just that good. and then she makes these GORGEOUS things. whoever says conceptual art isn't aesthetic hasn't spent any time with miss zittel's work. i had a big big art crush and it's only bigger now.

4. if you are in the LA vicinity.... PLEASE go see the poetics of the handmade . i walked through this show twice. and i don't ever do that. obsessive, hand crafted beautiful work on a grand grand scale.... just look at this . i really really fell in love with Máximo González's installation [no good pics on the moca website]. i could have spent all day in there....{giant thanks to annabelle who sent me passes to the museum}

5. spending time with my grandma, eating good food, talking politics and of course shopping - is such a treat. especially when you get to go home with these . i got other cool stuff too, but those pants just make me giggle every time!

um... so what else? shari posted our documentary project on monday.... and karen posted our last on beauty section on ship .

the mail has been good to me again of late.... will try to get to that this week. happy hump day! one final shot from down south:

Here's to your trip down to lala land, so much fun! Exciting to hear about your upcoming show. I'm bummed that I missed the Zittel show. I gotta get to Moca, soon.
Take care.

Oh so lovin' those pants - I just bought super wide legged suit pants (with a fabulously cut matching jacket) for work and I could live in them!

I love the colors in the gelato, too.

Sounds like a fantastic visit!

Tiff*
