Studio

Ideat Magazine

Ideat, a culture magazine based in France, sent a journalist and photographer to report on Seattle. Somehow they ended up ay my studio after First Thursday. Actually, Deborah Paine was their tour guide that evening and we work together at the City of Seattle

From L to R: Tod Gangler, Deborah Paine, Jean Michel de Alberti, Jean-Claude Figenwald

Tod Gangler, Seattle based photographer, was our translator. Jean Michel is writing the piece, and Jean-Claude was the photographer. They were in the midst of an intense week of experiencing Seattle. They changed hotels every day, ate out every meal, had tours of cultural destinations, and had about an hour of free time a day. Sounds grueling.

We had planned to have a few beers in the studio and go out for Chinese, but ended up just hanging out. I think they were relieved not to have to go out for dinner. It was a fun evening. I look forward to seeing the spread. Until then, “Vive la France!”

Dombrosky/Eakins

In January Rebecca and I got to visit briefly with Marc Dombrosky and Shannon Eakins at Marc’s show at Platform. My post about “Neverland” here. They have relocated to Las Vegas while Shannon pursues her MFA. We miss them.

Marc recently sent me a gift of one of his lovely embroidered pieces. Thanks Marc! I have it in the studio beside a pair of Marc and Shannon’s “Tacoma Drinkers.”  These are leather beer holsters that attach to your belt loops for two fisted drinking.

It should say "Wet Beer."

Plus we have this:

T-Town should by a gross of these!

We hope to visit them in Vegas soon.
