I had to interview an artist for the Los Angeles Downtown News for a new feature called, at least prior to editing, the original title of Downtown Artist of the Month. So I went and visited a friend at a house she bought in Lincoln Heights after ten years of loft living. Things went well. It was great to spend an afternoon with an old friend. While we were talking, she received a call from artist Jett Jackson, reminding her that the Santa Fe Art Colony was having their annual open studios this weekend. Hmmm, sounds like a plan! Jett relayed the shocking news that her loft will have paintings hung floor to ceiling (sarcasm now turning to “off” mode).
I took my girlfriend out for frozen yogurt and then we went to Barnes and Noble, where I bought a book about Joe DiMaggio and have already read the first 60 pages.
