In the new neighborhood! David and I walked to Market Street and had lunch. We listened to the next table discuss some very very personal information. I’ll have to remember what the place is called and let you know another time. Tables are close, so don’t discuss addiction, young foreign girls…
Here in the Ballard Flats, it’s…flat and you can see vistas.
This is the view from the top of the tower at the Ballard house.
Now let’s zoom in and take a mini view of David’s life:
This image is of The Men in “White Men in Suits”.
Here we see a detail of The Man from “Confrontation in the Green Room”.
David is teaching at the Bellevue Arts Museum on November 11 - 13. Check out www.bellevuearts.org
His lecture is on Friday November 4th at BAM. Having been at David’s previous lectures, I can tell you that it is an amazing look at an artist’s work and a privilege to hear the artist speak of it firsthand.
See you there.
When David was at the New Works Retreat at Haystack School of Crafts in Maine he was able to explore text based expression. This is one of his poems that came from that experience.
