SJ and Michael came over today at 5:30 - I was hanging out in Second Life waiting for Lumiere N to demolish the Ivory Tower of Primitives in Noyo, so after they'd been here half an hour we watched it together then I logged off so we could discuss other things. They left at 8:30 and I realised I had missed the prank again (last week I missed it because I was told it was at 11:30... when it was at 11:30 EDT). That's too bad but I was busy.
We talked about the shows, which had a joint opening last night. I didn't go (I refused as I hate crap like that) and neither did SJ and Michael (SJ said I wasn't going to be there so why would she?). Last week Lucia told me Tom and John bought four, and as Jim was driving back from Seattle (he works at the 5th Ave Theatre) he told Lucia they were selling like hotcakes and they'd better get there fast. Alas, a painting he had his eye on was sold. I don't know how many have sold so far - maybe 12 or so. I was thinking this moring, trying to decide how I would feel at the end when I realised that I'd never see some of my work ever again. I know I'll have a tough time, although I'm very happy that they are going out and finding homes as I can't deal with objects anymore. I've had a number of emails and phone calls from people saying how much they enjoyed seeing my work, which is nice. The galleries were packed, last night, I hear.
Glimpses of the Ivory Tower
The new Ivory Tower will have all the building tutorials, and is a lovely build in its own right, but I will always remember the old Ivory Tower.
