MARY BLAKE COMES OUT of the trunk


This is a water color that I made in a mountain village in notrthean Italy in 1974. 
Perhaps more exotique than the little village became.



 Jean Michel Faudemer, the director of the galerie 3F on the rue des Trois Fréres gave me a call a couple of weeks ago and asked me if I'd like to fill in a spot he had open in April. I've already shown at his lovely gallery three times and each time had a lot of fun but haven't shown anywhere in three years having finding my blog and facebook far less stressful to reveal my images and I don't have to face the crowd.

Jean Michel helped me enormously at the past openings. If someone said they liked a work, I'd immediately call him over and he would talk-it-up. When I open my mouth, I usually confuse the person so badly that his first impression becomes so tangled, the admirer  walks away.

I have lots of new work and thought that I could handle the framing so gladly agreed thinking it might wipe out the February blues in Paris.

He said that he woulds stop by the next day. We chose a few works, but then he became very curious about this large wooden trunk I had pushed aside. It's where I have kept my works on paper safe and dry for many years.
I showed him a few works and he kept saying. I want to see more.  "Encore Mary.Encore" There are probably over a hundred  oeuvres dating back to 1974 some not signed some not dated.

So we agreed to show recent works along a progression of earlier works. Une petite retrspective.
I hope it works'.
