Great opening in New York City tonight

I had so much fun at the opening of the group
show at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in
Chelsea tonight.
Here I am with the artist Jose Polcheira in front
of my painting Breakfast in the hotel.

I love Polcheira's fanciful sculpture creations,
so joyful, like the man himself.
Gallery Director, Ruthie Tucker (in the headress) with
her husband H.E. Ambassador Dr. Alton Louis Amsterdam III
and guests.
Another artist, who may show at the gallery in a future
show and I spent along time talking and laughing about 
everything.  We had a wonderful time.  Franco Belizi is
from Malawi, and was visiting New York from Chicago.
He says he has always thought Toronto would be a 
great home, even though he's never visited.

sharing a joke. 

Have a loving-what-you-do day.

Hi Verna,

Thank you so much. We are having a wonderful time. If I didn't have family, friends and animals in Toronto I might be sorely tempted to stay forever :-)

Hi Barbara,

Take a few nibbles out of the big apple for me.
Your work looks beautiful and you look pretty good yourself, beaming as always.

xo, Marcia

Grazie mille My friend. We've eaten a goodly amount of the Apple. Wish you were here. We would have some fascinating discussions, and delicious food.
