I recieved a wonderful email yesterday, and attatched was a picture I made over 15 years ago, which was great to see. I was hoping in some small way that perhaps by starting this blog, I would encounter some of my lost sheep, works that sold or I traded, or found their way into someones life. When I was with the Linda Farris Gallery, I never knew, and that was the deal with her, who had my work. In this case I gave this drawing to a friend of mine, Roland Barker, a very talented musician, whose music was very impactful on me right after college. My friend Blaine introduced me to his stuff, which at the time sounded a bit like Harold Budd, or Brian Eno's Music for Airports. My first solo show at Galleria Potatohead in Belltown in 1991, I picked Roland to play his music, and the other choice I had was to allow a newly put together band that was practicing below the gallery called Pearl Jam. I went with Roland.
