A successful opening night of Viva La Femme @ Lust for Life
Before the show I sat in a bar alone and drank two gin and tonics while listening to loud rockabilly. I needed time to reflect and relax before mixing with so many people. It did the trick. I enjoyed my time wandering through China Town, under the neon lights, statues, the smells and hubbub of restaurants. I wasn’t hungry, just a bit warm and fuzzy after two gins. The gallery filled up and the event kicked off. For two hours it was a busy, buzzing happening. My work sold as did many others. I got to meet lots of artists and discovered that I could sell my piece another 20 times. (might make some prints..) I got a lot of positive feedback. Woohoo! Some of my dearest friends were there who I rarely get to see, one I hadn’t seen for twenty years! I felt so blessed. We wrapped up the night at the piano bar next door with Long Island Iced Tea and sweet potato fries… mmmmmm.
I stayed in and around the city for a few days, got paperwork signed, sealed and delivered, visited galleries, markets, studios and workshops. Caught up with visiting friends on an impromptu trip and spent some quality time reconnecting. Perfect in so many ways. I survived and am revived. Catharsis ended. A complete success.
