You're a Good Man, Charley Hafen


I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, D'Arcy...for pities sake stop blogging and start packing...you wrote the perfect hiatus blog yesterday, what more could you have to say?

Well folks, I got news. Big, big news. I've been meeting with a local gallery and today was the day that I got my showing set in stone. Yep,  this small town girl has an exhibit all her own to plan. 


Did you hear that world?!!!!!

I have to come up with the theme of the show, create a whole, harmonious body of work for it, I get to keep the paintings in the gallery for a month and get my name out there, on the radio, in the newspaper, on the website.  Share my excitement! Share my joy! Share my passion! And let's rock n' roll this gallery right out of town. Ah yeah!!


Check it out!!

Well, hot diggity dawg, girl!

Holy Crap! Holy Crap! You're gonna be famous and I'll get to tell everyone that I used to know you back in those humble days when we were too poor as meager college students to pay for entertainment. Instead we would all gather together in your bedroom, and you and Holly would act out scenes from Sense and Sensibility in your nightgowns by candlelight. (Too embarrassing to publish on a blog? Sorry. You can get even with me someday by snubbing me when you are rich and famous. I hear they do that.)

WOW! WOW WOW WOW! D'Arcy!! I'm so happy for you! It's like the Universe is giving back to you the authenticity you're putting out there through your courage of living deliberately! Way to go!

Michelle said...

Congrats D'Arcy, this is great news! I'm proud of you and excited to go see it. They aren't going to make me buy a diamond or anything, right?


Have fun on your trip!

D'Arcy, this is so great. I can't say that I won't take some of the credit for offering some excellent, painting-inspiring conversation (The experts will say, "And Benincosa constructed this piece after her friend Alisa came over and was all alive with Quaker spirit.") Well, since I have a lot to learn on the art side, I have to take credit where I can. ;)

This is really cool. How fun to have this to look forward to when you get back!

D'Arcy,
This is so exciting! I am so happy for you. You are a wonderful artist, and I can't think of a better person to have her own show!
(there'd better be a butt-load of feminist art, that's all I have to say :)

Let me know when it is, I'd love to come up for it!

Bee! I finally decided to blog again--I couldn't stand not being here.

I am so glad to hear that you're doing well! Sweatband will definitely have to get a blog going; it'd be fantastic.

Arrested?! That could be you and me! HA! Well, we know where Blogger stands on a conversational standpoint from now on! :]

Hey, today is the 15th...so I just wanted to say:

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
You look like a monkey and you smell like one too!

(I don't mean a word of that last line. I've just been around too many 5-10 year olds.)

Hope you had a great trip and an even more great birthday. Talk to you soon! Jenn.
