All of the Skyline series are framed, stacked, and waiting to be hung at the gallery.
The catalog is written, the invitations mailed.
In preparation of fine appetizers for the opening reception, I'm already in the 4th turn of my Danish- scratch that- my local dairy butter-based pastry dough.
Um, well, not so much on that last bit. But in my consultations with Saveur, Martha, Pinterest and all other Google suggestions for fantastic finger foods, that's probably where I need to be at this point if I'm going to be ready in time to meet you with ma' bells on!
I've got my paper bag... thinking I'll be wearing that over my head when I greet you. I'm assuming you'll hear the bells tinkling, so you'll know it's me. Yes, I'm nervous! And when I'm nervous I like to eat, and think of eating. Where else in the world can one be nervous and eat so well as in middle-class, mid-valley California?! We live in <bleeping> Produce-Mecca, I say, Bring on the nerves!
Come see if I meet my expectations for extreme-local food, the perfect pastry, and elegant bag-wearing: at the John Natsoulas Gallery on 2nd Street; the party starts at 7pm on Saturday November 14th!
If you want to just see the paintings and not count my puff pastry's layers, pop in anytime between November 4th and December 5th.
