The Dance Series will
be on display at the Florence Biennale, an international
art show in Florence, Italy, which opens on December 5,
this coming Saturday. Exciting? Crazy exciting.
There is something compelling beyond words about
two of them -- the paintings I was working on when
The Oprah Winfrey Show people called me on April 27.
Those girls are pretty special to me. But so
is the one I'll show you again tonight, because
she is the one included in the catalogue for
the Biennale, and imagine this -- she's called
The Promise! Yep. And boy has she lived
up to her name in every way possible.
Huge thanks to all concerned -- Oprah and
her staff for the call that changed my life,
the Biennale staff for inviting me to participate,
and Claudia Puchiele, the beautiful model
for this piece, and my unofficial niece.
Have a life-is-entirely-amazing day.
