Helpful Friends

Click on photos to enlarge.

On Monday, I took three friends visiting from La Manzanilla to see my show. After first viewing the pieces at length, Christine and Melody made good use of Eduardo’s dry paint brushes to carefully remove dust from crevices I’d missed. So touching, the care they exercised in restoring my art to its former pristine state.  I love these photos.

Pam expressed her appreciation for the show by buying one of the retablos. Since the gallery doesn’t take credit cards, Christine aided the process by loaning her the cash to buy it, as she can pay her back when they get back to La Manz. What a well-oiled machine. Mind you they asked if they could do this! They are both artists and accustomed to looking at fine details and took great pleasure, they assured me, in routing out those little dust particles.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
