Tonight my Internet went off for a few hours just when
I wanted to write my blog.  It's on now, but it's very
late, so I won't say much tonight.  I feel incredibly lucky
when I think about so many great moments in my life.

One I will show here above -- at a great art opening at
the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in 2017 in New York City.
I talked to the gallery owner, Ruthie Tucker, yesterday.
She has been so kind to me for the past decade and
helped me get into a second show in New York this
year with another gallery.

Ruthie Tucker lives in an apartment near the Met, and
is so missing her time in the gallery -- which is her
passion.  She asked me what were some of my favourite
memories of showing in New York last December,
and I had so many.  I mean almost every moment in
New York is magical.  But the lights at Christmas were
magnificent, and we shared that memory.  A happy
thought in a hard time.

Have a loving the people who love your art day
