Uncle Nate’s Creativity Time, part 2

Uncle Nate’s Creativity Time

The above linked article tells more about Nathan Tan, a local artist who I met at the opening of Keith’s Chicken and Waffles, which is owned by a friend. Nate did the art for Keith’s, and my daughter, an art major, recognized the artist.

Nate also designed masks and put them up for sale on his website. I got some when they were avaliable. They are beautiful and worth checking out. His website for the masks is located at https://www.shopnewskool.com/accessories. He has many other items available there, too.

I’m glad that the article was written about him. He’s started a children’s show on online TV, which is linked in the article. It’s designed for the kids whose parents lack the creativity or skill to teach them art at home while we are still in the pandemic. I hope it goes far.

Rivera and Kahlo in San Francisco

Kahlo and Rivera in San Francisco

The above linked article tells about a small part of Frida Kahlo’s and Diego Rivera’s lives. The part that is told about is the time that they lived in San Francisco. It covers Rivera’s murals and how Kahlo reacted to living in San Francisco. It also covers the reason they got remarried after being divorced for a short time.

I enjoyed the article and it gave a little more insight to their lives. It is definitely worth reading.

Kahlo at the DeYoung

Kahlo exhibit opening

I have been waiting for things to start opening in my area. Nothing has been open for months. Last week, things have slowly been opening, including hair salons and gyms.

I got the email that one of the museums will be opening soon. One of the first exhibits is Frida Kahlo, as mentioned in the above linked article. I thought I’d missed it when the museum closed. I’m so excited. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get there and start my adventures again soon.

Picking Up Stuff from School

When we suspected that school might be closing back in mid March, my daughter and I took most of our stuff out of the cubbies at school.  We left a few paintings behind, thinking that we’d be back in a few days.   We also had paintings on display in the student building.

Once we went to Zoom, we asked the instructor a few times about when we’d be able to get in and retrieve our belongings.  “The dean will contact you.”

During the final Zoom meeting, we were told that we’d be contacted during the first week of June to get the paintings that were on display in the student building.  What about the stuff that is in the cubbies?   No response.

Last night, June 26, we were FINALLY contacted about getting the paintings that had been on display.  No word about the stuff in the cubbies.   I scheduled my time and asked about getting ALL of our stuff.   “Yes.  But you have to sort it out yourself because I don’t have any idea what’s yours.”

Well, at least I have a day and time that I should be getting everything.  Finally.   Fingers crossed. 

Bookshelf inserts

Bookshelf inserts

I was looking at the bookshelf inserts in the above linked article. I decided that I wanted one. They are adorable! Then, I started looking at prices. Nope. Not happening. While they are beautiful, I just can’t justify spending that much money on decorations for my book stack. I still enjoy looking at the photos of them, though.
