Gala Opening at the Sausalito Art Festival

Tonight's gala opening was an event to behold. Locals come to see the art and stay to party the night away with live bands and fine cuisine. I did sell a small work, which is better than last year's Friday opening, so there you have it. Perhaps the flood gates are opening, and if not, we are all having fun.

Rumor has it that there is a guy in a turban who annually visits the fair, and picks one artist's booth to buy completely out. Urban myths, art fair style.

My booth looks nice, and the tux wore wonderfully. I did get the pictures, but somehow cannot find the download cable! You'll have to wait until I get home to see the evidence. I guess you'll have to trust my word pictures for the time being. If you must know now, consider me in a tux as somewhere between the fellow in the first video and the guy in the second.

Congratulations Casey! May "the man with the turban" buy out your booth.

We all need our myths, and the guy in the turban is a good one. Manhattan?

I appreciate the comments and reading, Nika, Irina, Katherine, Jean and Sally.

Sally, the Manhattan clip shows WA in a tuxedo - I can't remember if I ever saw it, but I think I did once.

The turban guy says it isn't him...it is his boss that buys the big ticket items all up. Rrriiigghht....

I heard that Robin Williams went by, today, too. Art fair artists are such star hounds.
