Last night was Kent's first art opening in years. I thought it was a great evening. His sculptures showed beautifully in the space and 25 or more friends came by during the evening. It was a nice warm-up for March 2010 when he will have all new pieces to show. It's good to see him back in the studio and foundry and by March I hope to have a better grasp of how to promote his art so that it's gets even better exposure. Two of the favorites last night were Max and Sometimes I Talk to Myself. My two personal favorites, as well.We felt really blessed by the family and friends who came to see Kent's art and lend their support. We know it was a long drive for many of them. Our lives are enriched by knowing each one. I'm a bit like a fish out of water with a desire to help Kent with his art but not yet knowing exactly how to go about doing that. Fortunately, we are not alone. I will seek advice from those with more experience, my sister has offered her amazing skills to build a web site, I can apply my knowledge of how to make things pretty on paper, and little by little we'll make progress.
1+ month out, I can certainly say that this new season of my life is anything but boring. So many new skills to learn and things to experience. It helps to balance the sense of being overwhelmed when I focus on how spry it will keep my mind. Well, I've got a busy day ahead.
I should get ready!
