THANKS FOR COMING – Mina Nishimura 11/22/10

Thank you to everyone who came to my studio showing yesterday despite the impossible subway situation!
More people showed up than expected, and I felt very fortunate and grateful to have such supportive friends and community.
Out of the three pieces of material I showed, the second piece overwhelmed me by its heavy and dense nature…but I was glad to see it before making any decisions!
Open studio became a great new start*****
Thank u and have a happy turkey day::::::

Best wishes,

    just a reminder Mina, to keep it messy as long as you can. there’s still alot of research to be done .. don’t give in to the overwhelm, look at it, digest it.. decisions will come when you least expect them!

  2. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
