We didn't make much money, but it was one of the most beautiful things I've done; watching my talented friends perform with the backdrop of paintings and sculptures as people wandered in, curious, and stood smiling & transfixed, will forever be a happy memory. A lot of friends showed up - a few bringing friends - and even a few people I hadn't seen in years, which was a great surprise. The reaction to the show was all positive and Teeter & I each sold a piece.
And I sang!! I did it. I faced my fear and stood up in front of a roomful of people and sang, loud, backed only by a acoustic guitar and trumpet (yes, trumpet - another one of Jamey's unexpected talents). I was so nervous I couldn't open my eyes on the first go round, but after a audience-less rehearsal (and a glass of wine) I felt much more confident & just had fun with it. And I got a lot of positive feedback! It was such an amazing experience.
That's me! (accompanied by John on guitar & Jamey on trumpet) And my art behind me.
For those of you in LA, you have one more chance to be a part of this Side Work experience on Tuesday from 5pm to midnight - and at the world-famous Magic Castle, no less! Check it out here.
Today I am so grateful and happy for:
~ all the friends that came out to support us last night
~ selling some art!
~ facing an old fear - and feeling great about it
~ making amazing things happen
