My friend Meri this morning in a neighborhood coffee shop. She'd arranged for a few artist friends to meet there, and she brought some of her recent pieces. I remember a teacher of mine in art school commenting with envy on the beauty of being Paul Klee and being able to tuck your entire ouevre into a suitcase (this teacher specialised in huge Cor-Ten® steel constructions!)
I had a similar envious pang watching the pile of bright paintings come out of her portfolio: wow! Portable art, it's a beautiful thing.
