My San Francisco Trip and the de Young Exhibit: Part6 (After the Reception)

After going non-stop from 6:00-8:30pm, I was starving! My hunger finally hit me. Larry, Mindo and I went to our ever faithful Thai Stick and treated ourselves to a good meal.

After dinner we headed to Polk and met up with Maayan for Hookah and beer:)...Classic SF thing to do.
I had a wonderful WONDERFUL time...such a cool visit and can't wait for the next. I'm surely leaving my heart in San Francisco once again.

My San Francisco Trip and the de Young Exhibit: Part5 (The Reception)

After welcoming the guests, we let everyone in by groups. The gallery could only accommodate 50 guests at a time and so they had to patiently wait in line to come in to the gallery and experience the imagery, paintings and installation. What a wonderful crowd, THANK YOU for waiting and for coming to see the exhibit. It was a gift being able to share my art with all of you.
Amberlyn Nelson from the AAU, thank you for all the help and support!
Me and my dear friend Maayan. Thank you for making it, even if you weren't feeling so well. You are a trooper!
Will Mosgrove, Graduate Director of Photography at the AAU. Thank you for coming Will!
With Wilmarys, so nice seeing you again Wil! I missed you!
Larry, my bodyguard, manager and photographer of the night! Thank you, it was awesome getting to share this experience with you. (Larry was busy all night taking all these photos!)
Awesome seeing you there Ate Nina and Doug!

With Vadim of Plotnet, where I had my postcards and images mounted. Thank you for all the help and the wonderful job!

This is Pam, the one who kept me calm and sane, found time in her busy schedule to help hang the images with me and stayed up many nights listening to me, my ideas and craziness. I love this lady!

With Greg the real ringmaster. I love making fantasies and dreams come true with you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I am so blessed, I offer all the praises to the God that has been so gracious to me, my loving parents, caring family and amazing friends, who all in their own special ways helped make all this happen. Maraming Salamat Po!
