With Kristal Hart and Franco Mbilizi
being interviewed for MNN, Manhattan TV
in front of Wonder Water Image #6
at the new Amsterdam Whitney Gallery.
This was the opening of the new ground floor
space for the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery.
Imagine my surprise when I arrived, and
the gallery Director, Ruthie Tucker, had
hung my Wonder Water Image #5, in
full view. The painting was sold, but not
picked up yet, and she wanted me to feel part
of the new space.

next to Ruthie.But even more surprising when my wonderful
friend, Franco Mbilizi arrived from Chicago,
we were told that we would be interviewed on TV
by Kristal Hart, TV personality, and journalist for
MNN, Manhattan TV.
Kristal Hart interviews Franco Mbilizi about
being a featured artist in the 100th Anniversary
Issue of Vogue Magazine.Franco and I met one year ago, and are great
friends, via telephone, and texting. So it was
especially meaningful to me to be interviewed
in front of my painting, with Franco who
supports my work, like I support his. And it was
so exciting when he showed Kristal Hart,
the 100th Anniversary Issue of British Vogue.
Franco's work featured in Vogue Magazine
is in the upper right hand corner of the
double page spread.
The write up in the 100th Anniversary issue

new gallery, meeting some super artists, and
Franco and me on TV.
Have an enjoying your friends' art day.
