i have a lovely friend that is a painter, vaho muskheli, and he had a gallery opening on friday that i went to. as usual, the paintings were very beautiful, and it was great to see him again, as i don't get to see him very often anymore. he is actually the one who got me the job that i have now, sewing bridalwear for madina vadache. he knows madina, and just picked up the phone and got me 'the hook up'. at the time, it was my dream job, so to say i was grateful, seems a ridiculous understatement! coincidentally, madina also had a gallery opening of her new first line of ready-to-wear. the photos at left are a some of the new things. so wasn't i quite the social butterfly last week, flitting from gallery opening to gallery opening!
at vaho's gallery opening, here are some of the paintings that are in the gallery now, but in real life they are even much more beautiful. the colors seem to glow on the canvas, and i love being in the gallery surrounded by them. he also does some beautiful charcoal drawings, too which were also in the exhibition. i love this medium, it was one of my favorites when i used to draw. there is such depth in vaho's drawings...they are just gorgeous. me and my daughter bought lotto tickets last night...92 million, i think! if we win it, i'm gonna buy all these paintings! oh yeah, and a big enough house to put them in! (and another mustang...maybe a shelby! do they come in pink?)
