très frais

Didn't think I would write again?...well, I am up to my ears in great cheese, bread and wine here in paris but I was surprised this morning to see "my james" on the cover of metro times...very neat and thank goodness for the internet! Travel has been great so far - and I am off to berlin saturday. I am excited to see what the booming art scene is like there!

Moving Day

I'm not really one for grand good-bye's. Even good-bye's at the end of the evening, and am the perfect example of the giver of awkward one-armed hugs...When someone left I always found it much easier to give a painting or gift than sometimes expressing what they meant to me. I have found it difficult to bring an end to this blog (thus the week off). This has been a big part of my life for the past few years and has taken a lot of time and dedication but very much worth the trouble. I feel that I have gotten to know not only the local detroit art scene completely but the national/international scene as well! Well, I leave tomorrow for europe and beyond and will miss this city but can't express how much I look forward to seeing new places! It has been an interesting ride...thanks to everyone who participated and supported the blog!

Thank You
Linda Ridgway, bronze

Be sure to check back in a few months....I will most likely have a link to the new LA blog...or end up never coming back and living in a beach hut in Thailand (which PS I have learned a beach front hut is under $5 a day!)

Thanks again!

Square Immediacy @ white wall gallery

Glad to see someone taking over this space (former YCG)...and I hear it will be up for grabs again in another couple months. I am in packing mode right now and it is hard to comment and feel focused on this art scene when in less than two weeks I will not only be out of this state but out of the country. I am trying to keep up with a few last good posts but excuse me if I start to fade out. This blog has been a wonderful experience and has quickly immersed me in this scene. I have met many wonderful, supportive people here and I hope to stay in touch. I haven't decided if I will be posting from europe or not - a lot depends on internet and timing and also not feeling "at work". OK, back to packing!
