What a pleasure it was to collaborate with Chef Ryan Pfeiffer and team of Blackbird’s Artist Dinner Series. Those of you who have visited my studio know how meaningful I find conversations about the paintings. I don't believe art takes on its fullest meaning until it is out of an artist's hands or studio, and then made available for those who bring it to life with their own readings and interpretations. I was overjoyed to join Blackbird in inviting a small group to experience a seasonal feast prepared in response to a group of paintings that were hung in the restaurant that evening. What a delight our studio and restaurant visits have been and how wonderful the dinner party was.
