Here we are at our last week in Denver and I wanted to say a few things about our stay here. I can't believe its been a whole year and about 3 months. Its feels like just yesterday I was spending my first weekend drawing chalk art on the streets in Denver’s LoDo area. A lot has happened since making those connections that day. Denver has been really great to me and my art. I did about everything I wanted to do here. The only thing I didn’t do (only cuz I was so busy with everything else) was to find a gallery to represent my work while I’m on the road. I’m really pushing this last week to find something, but I’m not sure I have enough time. Oh well, we will be back in May with a brand new body of work and at that time I should have the pick of the galleries.
So we sold off everything we could bike, bed, even our Element, which means one of the last things we do in Denver is ride the bus. We reserved a moving van and booked hotels along the way to Texas to pick up our Tour Van (which we are naming “Nautilus”). We have a show in Oklahoma City on September 4th, 5th and 6th at OCCC so come see me if you're in OKC. I wanted to have a Tweetup there and meet with some gallery owners and do some studio visits but since we don’t have our Nautilus yet we will just head out to Texas after the show.
We went to see the dentist one last time to make sure we were all good before hitting the road (keeping our teeth is an important thing to us) and we ate dinner one last time near 16th Street Mall. We are pretty much packed and ready to go, just need some cleaning done. We are also doing a “Bye Bye Nemo” Tweetup this Saturday at Max Gill and Grill from 5 to 8, so if you're in Denver and want to come see us off, come on out.
I feel like I’m going to miss Denver a lot more than I missed leaving San Antonio, guess cuz I was there 33 years and only in Denver 1, or it could be the ratio of 1 to 5 cute yoga booties, whatever it is I am going to miss this "one (big, scary, blue) horse" town!
