Today I had the privilege of helping my friend Anne Morgan hang her very first art show. You can see it for yourself at Magnolia Cafe on Lake Austin Blvd-- it'll be up for a month I think. I LOVE Anne's bright paintings. Mostly she paints plants and flowers and trees. I'd like to fill my house with her whole collection but for today I had my eye on one in particular-- a blue dog. Probably not a surprise that I'd go for the dog painting. I offered to buy it on the spot an Anne just laughed and said she'd actually been planning to give it to me. But in the interest of being her first patron, I insisted she take a dollar bill I found in my bag.
Congratulations to Anne! I am always so psyched when my friends show their stuff to the world. I've got a house full of paintings over here and every one of them has a wonderful story attached. I can't wait to bring the blue dog home and add him to the collection.
