Just back from a quick run (flight) to LA to hook up with Liu Meifing and Chen Qiaolian whom we met in Hong Kong when we ate at their restaurant. They told us they would be visiting California and we promised to meet and greet them no matter the logistics. So, we took a quick flight and met them at The Grove and talked and walked for hours. Next day, we took them through Beverly Hills and The Kodak Theatre tour (next to Grahman’s Chinese Theater), then a great dinner at Mr. Lee’s in Chinatown. It’s their first trip to the United States and I wish I could show them all my favorite places. Yesterday, they flew up to San Francisco and we flew back to Arizona.
Came back to find a “Comment” email on yet another “Alone” painting original – again by a different artist. Will do the next blog about that. Taking the day off work to catch up on my sleep!
