It is not often that you get to meet your art friends, but sometimes you are lucky and blessed! Today, i decided to travel down to New Haven, CT to see my friend Tristan Blakeman in a play. The photo above is the two of us after Tristan finished performing this afternoon. Earlier this week, Tristan had announced on his blog that he would be in "Soccer Moms from Hell" through the New Haven Theater Company. Tristan and I have shared our art for a few years now, and most recently via the Colour Groupies group. But even though he lives fairly near me -45 minutes away, i had yet to meet him in person. Well, i decided to change that and today, I did. It was the greatest fun! The play was a HOOT, really. Tristan described it to me as "a new, un-produced play, so it hasn't been work shopped before...dont' expect TOO much - except lots of offensive jokes LOL." : ) well, that was true, but i just laughed and laughed! And what a delight to meet Tristan. I am so glad I went and Tristan was so kind - he brought me a gift!!!!!
