Continuing with the striping work has been a great pleasure, and I’ve completed the first layer of the magician’s jacket. It’s been really fun to balance the stripes as they ripple in and out through the passage of the creases at the elbow and shoulder.
This evening I’m enjoying an evening at Alexey Steele’s Classical Underground, where excellent classical musicians perform chamber music overlooked by figurative works by master painters. Tonight I’m admiring an excellent neoclassical painting by Chinese artist Jove Wang, who by remarkable coincidence is a friend of and co-exhibitor with my friend and colleague Bela Bacsi at their gallery in Pasadena, American Legacy Fine Arts.
Bela’s show at our university gallery opens this Saturday with a reception at five. He’s a fabulous sculptor, if you’re able to come you should seize the opportunity to meet this remarkable man. He’s a treat to know.
