Oh my gosh. We went to an art gallery opening last night.
Oh you guys! We got to see the wonderful artwork of the enchanting Elsa Mora in person!!! If it's at all possible, her work is even more stunning in person. I wanted to come home with everything in sight.
¡Estimado Elsita, adoré cada pedazo!
WAH! I didn't get to say hello though. I'm so shy and such a knucklehead. There weren't many people there when we arrived but Elsa was always talking to someone and I didn't know how to graciously um, linger and say hello, without looking like a lunatic. Duh. D'oh. Duhr.
And then my chance had passed ... the gallery began to fill up and she was encircled with intimates and well wishers. sniffle sniffle.
I need to wear a button saying "please come talk to me, I'm too much of a twit to come to you"! Woe is me.
Elsa is showing in tandem with the wonderful Carlos Estevez. I was unfamiliar with his work but I want to be sure and follow him now. Amazing work.
I did manage to say hello to Carlos Estevez and tell him how much I enjoyed his work and the show ... only because he happened upon me and we were face to face. YIKES! My husband had disappeared around a wall in the gallery and I had followed behind to see if the exhibit continued, found that it didn't (it was the office area) and I turned and there was Carlos Estevez. Blithering and muttering of words then commenced.
It's no fun being shy ... and middle aged. Geez.
Anyway, you must go see the show if you're in Los Angeles!
Oh and perhaps have lunch or dinner at Cube like we did ... we had Burrata with caramelized brown turkey figs and rosemary honey, I had sweet kabocha squash stuffed pasta, hubby had maltagliati with shaved lobster mushrooms and for dessert I had the chocolate lava cake and hubby had the warm honey date pudding. YUMMERS!
Such a delightful evening!
