during the weekend, i received a wonderful message from a fellow art aficionado that they had taken photos and videos during their visit to see my exhibition, INTO THE LIGHT, in madrid.
i was taken aback, not only by their thoughtfulness as i had not been able to travel to the show in person, but for them to go out of their way to take photos, videos and share them — i was truly touched.
this entire process of having my first solo show outside of the united states has been such an eye opening experience. the thought that someone, whom i have never had the pleasure of meeting (yet!), believing in the work that i do enough so as to dedicate their exhibition space to sharing paintings with their clients, going out of their way to handle all logistics in madrid and even spreading the word about the show knowing i would not be able to attend in person. all of this, for someone they do not know personally. i am deeply humbled.
... and then receiving a note about the videos and photos. it is just incredible how much love people have to share. i am truly inspired by the human heart.
thank you, sofie indesteege, for your heart. i felt as if i had traveled there with you.
the show will be going on until august 1st, 2015 at do design . madrid . spain.
