Another Day in Oakland

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

I took my two grandson to see John Abdul today. I wanted them to see the only man I have ever known who had been shot point blank in the stomach with a shotgun—and lived to tell the story! I bought some more sculptures today–at a much higher price than yesterday.  John had money in his pocket today and that definitely affected his prices.  And that is true!

I am trying to get the Blog where it will take your comments–don’t know exactly how———–

I spent today with John Abduljaami in Oakland. I bought a few pieces. He has quit carving due to injuries to his wrists and shoulders, I have known John for about 15 or 16 years. He is 68, turning 69 and is getting tired like the rest of us old folks!

Perhaps An Angel!

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Life is so full of wonders. Because of the gallery I have became a friend of an old homeless man. He looks very slight and seems to be sinking. It has became such a joy in my life just to know this humble man. Today as he was leaving Burger King I said a prayer to myself asking God to take care of this gentle soul and to him I said (not aloud) “Rest in peace”.. I can’t help but wonder if I will see him again. But I know this–When I get to Heaven I will see him and perhaps I have truly helped an angel!

Kelly Moore is finally getting some of the recognition that he so much deserves! He is truly one of the best artists I have represented in 30 years!

Somerset Studio magazine published his “Artist Portfilio in the May/June 2010 edition. This magazine can be purchased at Borders book Store.

Sorry, but I am having a hard time working this blog!
I have recently purchased some more paintings but my favorite is Jimmy Sudduth’s Train. It makes you want to hop right on board!
