Day 274: We are here, a photo
I’m in the bay area for my gallery opening, and decided to hit up an old haunt with my cousin Jaclyn- Rasputin’s, a discount music store. I had a long standing moratorium on shopping at Rasputin’s due to a certain underhanded concert ticket snafoo many years ago, but they did end up making things right (with the prompting of a BBB report I opened up) and hell, their CDs are super cheap. I ended up getting a string quartet cover of Radiohead songs for 2 bucks. Score! I also came across this amusing post-it note in the mass discount bins.
Having worked at a CD store back in the day, I know that this has something to do with sorting/filing, but I enjoyed taking it out of a context as a photo and being able to look at it as a contemplative moment for reflection. I am constantly asking myself where I am, what I’m doing, where I’m going- in a life pattern sort of way, not in a confused/disoriented sort of way- and seeing this simple statement summing it up amused me. I’ll be back in the studio tomorrow, but another photo may make an appearance. I’m running low on reference images for my woodblocks, so it may be time for another photo trip into the wilderness. Have a great weekend!
Oh, and if you’re in the city, swing by the City Art Gallery for our October opening! It’s from 7-10 pm and there will be free wine and snacks! Hobnob with non-snobs at 828 Valencia St. SF (mission district). There’s a parking garage with good rates on 21st, a couple of blocks away. The gallery is open regularly from 12-9 Weds-Sun.
