Happy People Group (not official) at the Biennale to help
all of the artists we knew stay positive.
Today it was Sinterklaasavond (Sinterklass evening) for my friend
Miranda Brouwers and her family who live in The Netherlands. Sinterklaas
is like our Santa Claus, and people give gifts and celebrate. Tomorrow will
be a day of celebration too because it's the feast of Sinterklaas.
Miranda and I made friends at the Florence Biennale in 2015 and have
shown together in the Carousel du Louvre in Paris too. But what is
wonderful is that we talk on the phone once a week, most weeks, and
the conversations are delightful.
I am lucky to have wonderful friendships with artists. Their work, posts
and encouragement make me so happy.
This year we were so lucky to get to visit Paris in August, and Miranda and her
husband Rolf made the 5 hour drive from the Netherlands to spend some time
with us. Miranda has a wonderful laugh, and is generous, and kind beyond
Because the holiday festivities start earlier in the Netherlands, Miranda
and I missed our normal call this week. I look forward to hearing all
about the festivities.
In Paris in August we also had dinner with our friend Alessandra Masha
Mascitti, who we met when she was helping manage an exhibition I was in
at the Carousel du Louvre Art Shopping show in the Musée du Louvre in
Paris in 2015. Alessandra had dinner with us one night at our favourite
Thai restaurant, and we had so much fun.
I love this photo from eight years ago of me and Miranda. I hope we can
show together again.
Have a loving your friends day.
