Finally it was the night of the show, on the way to the gallery my cell phone rings and it is an old friend, someone I have known since high school, saying he is sending another old friend over to my opening. Five minutes later he is the second guest to walk in. He still had the same great style and the same sparkle in his eye – we share a quick life story update and reconnect.
He is married happily and well with many children and brings with him a fabulous dog and then to begin my night on a real high says very casually, after hearing about the journey and looking at the work, I will take that one…
In India and all over the Far East the first sale of the day is very auspicious and brings good luck and good feelings all the way around and I must say it did.
Thank God for home boys !!

A Toast In Guizhou
South Of The Clouds – as Southwest China is known – is pastoral, stunningly beautiful, richly steeped in minority culture – I am returning to the provinces of Guangxi and Guizhou in April, which I last visited In 1997.
I will be traveling from village to village, with my sister and a few others. Along the way engaging with local families and exploring their individual customs, history and lifestyles and how they are changing with the incursion of the modern world. The rich tapestry of minority life is truly Guizhou’s majesty. In 1997 I visited villages that had never received western guests. I wonder how different it will be…
As we gradually make our way to Guangxi, we watch the surrounding landscape evolve. One destination is Guilin, where stunning scenes of limestone hills across a horizon of lakes and rice fields, have been the source of inspiration for Chinese painters for centuries.
Getting ready now- in expedition mode-assembling all my gear-reading and studying about the culture and getting focused mentally on what I might want to create knowing it will evolve once I get there.
