Last week I received an Insta-Gram note from a man in New Zealand who had been following my work over the internet. He was in Hollywood for a visit and wanted to know the closest gallery where he can see my work. Laguna was the closest. The tiny little Las Laguna Gallery on the cliff over looking the ocean has a great selection of my work. I wanted to make sure he left the gallery with a great collection from my latest creations, so I met him at the gallery with a fresh basket of Meditation Rocks.
I normally do not do that, but I needed to visit the gallery anyway.He was such a sweet man! He made a very thoughtful selection of each piece while we laughed and chatted.
We ended up spending a great afternoon together! Since it was Halloween time, candy was everywhere, so I introduced him to his very first Reeses Peanut butter Cup! HA! He said he had heard of them from American TV. He said they were tastier than he thought.
I was so happy that I was able to make a new friend! Today my little creations are New Zealand bound with one of the kindest souls ever!
Laguna was not the only gallery/shop that I visited this week. Pangaea Outpost in Pacific Beach received an entirely new selection. I added some festive lights to my display to add a little festive vibe. Pangaea Outpost has been a hub for my work for many years. I am always amazed at the traffic and happy vibes that hit you right when you walk in the doors. Pangaea has everything! My work sits quietly in a glass cabinet in the middle of the isle. Drop by and pick a few up. You might fall in love with one or two of them.
