Luncheon today was at our house…a reunion of sorts.
Friend and former student Kent Lew came for a catch up visit while in Portland at a conference…far from his current home in the Berkshires. Kent graduated in 1985 and we’ve only seen him once since then. He was a talented artist, a good student, and became a friend. Here’s the show card from his senior show, all these many years ago…
and R surprised Kent by pulling out his “Kent file” with some gems…(R IS an archivist at heart…)
After graduation in 1985 Kent spent a month in Italy with us…(I didn’t have a great camera or maybe I didn’t know how to use it, more than likely) but you get the idea…
And Kent had forgotten that we had the painting on his show card…surprises and fun all around…and it’s only Tuesday!
I love the painting and envelope-art. Thank you for sharing!
You certainly know how to use a camera now, Bonnie! Such fine photos, such delightful visual story telling. We are all lucky to benefit from your well-honed documentary abilities and Roger’s archivist heart.
we haven’t left you a thank you for your gift to all of this blog for some time, so let it be known, we view & read it always with great pleasure. thank you, bonnie & roger. (sloy and nic)
p.s. those are great bl/wh shots from 1985 Italy.
I never throw anything away but my problem seems to be when I go looking for something, I can never find it. You and Roger are amazing. Another great blog.
Of course, I love the transferware.
How great to see pictures of Kent I hadn’t seen before! Thanks for the great post.
Best Regards, Carol Lew (the wife)
