Here in Yonago on the western Japan Sea coast on our way back to Kyoto. Spent the past few days visiting people in the Matsue area where I’ll be exhibiting next weekend, my first show in that area in 13 years! Yesterday we stopped in Yonago, another major town on the Japan Sea about 45 min down the road to visit my old friend, the well-known painter Brian Williams who is currently showing here at Yonago Takashimaya.
It felt pretty nostalgic since I also exhibited here myself 18 long yrs ago. Now it seems they are interested in bringing me back for another show in the near future, something to discuss further after my Matsue show perhaps.
Sorry to say I haven’t gotten into the blogging groove as yet, spent the summer trying to get started but headed back to the States in late Aug. and was so busy I never even got the entries going from a great trip around N. California. It was a 2 week trek to many areas tht I had never been to before where a variety of good friends live in wonderful spots, far from “the madding crowd”. Since it is time to head back to Kyoto now I’ll be signing off but hope to put up a couple pics from the trip soon.
The first thing I need to deal with is choosing the works for this upcoming exhibition and getting them ready to bring back to Matsue this coming Thurs., a lot to do in the next 3 days. I will plan to post some shots from the show next weekend. If you are interested in keeping up when I do new posts sign up your email and they’ll come to you automatically. I also plan to put up a selection of new works once the Matsue show is over.
