You Just Never Know

Last Saturday, a passerby noticed, through the windows, the reception for Only Human going on and strolled in. As luck would have it his name is Roger Costa and he's a reporter for Brazilian Press. Roger seemed really interested and said he was going to write about the show. I took it with a grain of salt thinking he would forget all about it after he left as he was on his way to another event. But he didn't. What a nice guy. It's in print and online. A really nice man.

What A Reception

Yesterday was the reception for Only Human. I didn’t know how many people would turn out and the day before it I found out a person dear to me had a serious medical condition and was facing a very serious operation. Needless to say I was stressed out about my friend and my mind was elsewhere. However, around 100 people came and I was stunned. It was festive and fun and full of opinions. When I would ask people which painting of mine was their favorite (if any) they all chose a different one. So I’m not going to worry whether my more extreme style is popular or not. I’m just going to paint what I want. My suddenly overnight, very sick friend also helped me resolve this issue. It’s a cliché but it’s true. As long as we’re not hurting anyone we should do what makes us happy as we never know what’s going to happen next.
