Big News!



White Amaryllis in the kitchen
Hi everyone,

Today I officially signed on with the Amsterdam Whitney
Gallery in New York City, and I'm going to be in a
group show that opens on May 6. Once again I am
over the top with excitement. The people I've talked
to at the gallery are wonderful, and Henriette Sonne,
who I met at the Florence Biennale, my friend, and a
wonderful artist, has been represented by
the Amsterdam Whitney for the past five years, and
has only good things to say about the curator and staff.

So you can whoop with me, because believe me there's
a whole lot of whooping going on.

I had fully intended to get painting tonight
but if no art makes its way on here, I'll post a photo.

It occurs to me that May is not at all that far off.

Have a dreaming-up-some-wonderful-art day.

Hi Davide,

Your confidence in me means a great deal. I'm hoping that you and Sandra can come down and show me the ropes. I can still see the way your faces lit up at the mention of Chelsea.

Take care,
