Alice Hargreaves

Today during my show, a woman pushing an older woman in a wheelchair and a man (middle-aged) in a mad hatter hat came into the gallery… They saw the article in the paper by Stefani Dias in the Bakersfield Californian, and decided they must go.
See, the woman in the chair was Alice Hargreaves. She was not “the” Alice but had her same name. “Alice is here to see her childhood friends,” said her daughter in law pushing the wheelchair. The man sporting the top hat was Alice’s son and she had made the hat for him.
Alice has been a lifetime fan of the story and has a collection of over 100 versions/copies of the book and also a vast collection of Alice in Wonderland items. She sampled the tea cakes and chocolates and had a glass of water. She smiled up at me and winked a few times while looking over the art works. They bought a couple prints and left after an hour or so.
This was a very special visit…

Today there was an article in the Bakersfield Californian about the artist’s reception of Curiouser and Curiouser this Saturday. Take a look!

What a great surprise!

In Thursday’s paper the following article will run! I was asked to take a profile picture for the paper but I really didn’t completely understand what it was for. I knew there was an award for a sort of best-of type article but I had no idea it was such a grand ordeal! I’m humbled and so appreciative to The Californian, Don Martin of Metro Galleries, Jesus Fidel (my cheerleader and best friend), my family and many Foundry friends who push me and surround me with encouragement to press forward.

My goodness, what a great way to end the year!
