a new chapter

fenario's turning a big corner this month. steven lopez got into town last night with his amazing show. i'm hoping no one noticed, but as we moved the canvases into the gallery (at a ghostly hour, the city asleep) i couldn't wipe the grin off my face. it felt like christmas.

i carried a piece entitled "if you were a huntress, i would be your bow" into the space, and when i get it down and got a good look at it i was moved to tears (again, hoping no one saw that). you should have seen my face when i heard the title (full title: "if you were a huntress, i'd be your bow. for your silver arrows, to seek out his heart."). hottest title EVER. it immediately reminded me of mos def's verse on the jill scott "love rain" remix, which i've always said is the sexiest piece of spoken word i've ever heard.

this show means so much to myself, and the gallery. i can't say too much, but the quality of the work lopez brought in is so high, that i am finally over any nerves that i had stemming from the possibility that i had gushed too much, and i'd end up on my face. my mom always says "the proof is in the puddin'" and let me tell you: this puddin' tastes DELICIOUS.
