Salad with tomatos and gnocchi with pecans and fresh pepper were on the menu for lunch today. Pat Chatt’s admonishion made it to the table too, “Bring your food to your mouth, not your mouth to your food.”
Before lunch David composed a beautiful ode to Flemish painting.
Last week, David was working on a blue Swarovski bracelet and here is a close up of the bracelet. It’s finished and ready for SOFA Chicago: Sculpture Objects & Functional Art, October 28 - 30th.
Around the studio David has his inspiration:
“educational - useful - fascinating”
Outside, as usual, it is just as busy as inside.
Last Friday David, Ron and I went to the Seattle Men’s Chorus and Seattle Women’s Chorus 2nd Annual Art Auction. Held at Con Works, there were fabulous pieces by many artists including Jenny Pohlman & Sabrina Knowles who were there wearing fabulous shoes.
We ended the evening at Maneki’s in the ID. Maneki: 4 Sixth Ave. S. Seattle, WA (206) 622-2631. From the Stranger’s review: “Returning from internment after World War II, Maneki’s owners found their grand restaurant ransacked. Maneki reopened in the 1940s in its current location — which had served as a storage space during internment — and has stayed small, recently expanding the sushi bar from three seats to six.”
The eel salad is highly recommended.
