I went to the By Hand show this weekend to visit my good friend Gail at her beautiful booth. I thought it was an exceptional show! It took me 45 minutes just getting down the first isle, I saw so many wonderful things and spoke to so many beautiful artists. Then, I stopped and met Jeff with Eikona Photography and had to have this print.
There is a very embarrassing story from 20 years ago that goes perfect with this picture. I was supposed to leave Cleveland and go to New York to visit my brother Kurt and go to his buddy's wedding. Well, the directions he sent me were reverse (like leaving NY and coming to Cleveland). Remember, this was in my early 20's, this was my very first road trip alone and I was quite the "socializer" and hung out at the local "socializing hole" (ok, watering hole!). I had way too many to drink and hit the road the following day with quite a smart headache (well, total hangover actually). To make a long story short, I ended up right outside of Chicago before I realized I was driving the wrong direction! Yes, that really did happen, I know, hard to believe with as smart as I am! Well, as you can see, I just HAD TO HAVE this print - wish I had it 20 years ago!!!
