Good afternoon. Today’s lunch is left over from last night’s feast. Ron, David, Tom and I had our plates full from Pandasia. They deliver! Across the Ballard Bridge! The vegetarian potstickers are A+ and just as tasty the day after.
Pandasia, voted Seattle’s Best Takeout by Seattle Weekly, 1625 West Dravus Street: www.pandasia.com

We are still getting ourselves situated in the new Ballard space. We are also getting ready for opening night at the Bellevue Arts Museum. Yes, the show is already open, this is the celebration.

Last week I mentioned that David is teaching and giving a lecture but I neglected to mention the Family Day the museum is planning. It’s Sunday, November 6th and David will be teaching a children’s beading class. If there are any pint size artists in the family, bring them to Bellevue. Arts Education is so important and we need to catch them while we can. There are other workshops to participate in as well as music and dance. I think David and I should have Dance Breaks with the beading, don’t you? Art is seeing AND moving.

Thanks to the museum staff for putting together such a beautiful show and for working so hard in making the teaching experiences happen.

Again, it’s: www.bellevuearts.org, for all the info.

SOFA Chicago is this weekend at the Navy Pier. Opening night is Friday and the event runs through Sunday. Mobilia Gallery’s Libby and JoAnn Cooper will be there with David’s work.

Mobilia will have this piece at SOFA, you’ve seen it before on the blog and now Delia Floor has completed the silk covered box.


Shall I model for you?


Blogged before, this beautiful bracelet is now complete with its silk box.

These bracelets capture and reflect the flow of the classic Odalesque.

Eugene Delacroix, Odalesque, 1827-28

Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, La Grande Odalesque, 1814

Jacques Louis David, Madame Recamier, 1800

As we are traveling back in time, deep in coversation with the ladies, let’s stop in on studio work from a few years ago before we arrive again in the present:

This small study David worked on while first exploring Single Needle Right Angle Weave, the stitch David is known for, with Swarovski Crystals.


Here you can see detail as David works over armature in a grid system, also with Swarovski Crystals.

Alright folks, it’s 2005 again and we’ll see you next week as we hail Standard Time.

    Just wanted to let you know that I love your blog, and read it every week. The opening last night at BAM, was quite impressive, and the first chance I got to see David’s exhibit. Pretty stunning to see it all together in one place, and interesting to watch others look at the pieces. I thought to myself “Damn, he is pretty good after all!” Just kidding, love you all lots! Love, Marisa Chatt
