The husband has not been feeling well and I was worried about being able to drop off a canvas in San Francisco. He rallied and we made it to the Live Worms Gallery in perfect time to hand over my “Kaleidoscope Girl” to Elizabeth and company. I’m one of 30 artists adding art for this show. I have shown art in North Beach before at the Mejia Gallery- which had been a few doors down from Live Worms Gallery but there’s no sign of what happened to the Mejia Gallery as it’s a different business in that spot. I’m always thrilled to have art on display but I’m super duper Uber excited to be displayed in this fun, touristy part of the city.
In my day, North Beach was the busiest place to be any night of the week. I have great memories of partying with Van Morrison and friends At Calzones, Another time, watching Chris Isaaks film his “San Francisco Days” music videos outside the Stinking Rose (the original Stinking Rose!). One time, Wavy Gravy (famous Hippie clown around here) stole A cannoli from my plate as he sauntered by my outside table at Mara’s (reknown Italian pastry spot ). There’s the night we followed Kenny Brooks (sax player from a favorite band) from his gig at Pearl’s nightclub, up the street and around the corner into the Saloon-which is the oldest bar in San Francisco. Playing his sax the whole way there.
Thanks for reading! I’ll be back soon with my current work in progress using up some of that Eros thread/yarn that was gifted to me in December.
