I don't mind the first two hours (at least when I'm playing with good musicians, and I can solo and/or I can sing a few songs), but the last two hours are so intolerably boring. There is just so much spit I can wipe off my face from the conversations with drunks.
I held my artist 'Meet and Greet' last month at The Scotch and Vine. Some fabulous musicians came and played the event including; Tim Turner, Rod Cook, Ronnda Cadle, Heidi Swan, Gary, and my band mates: Carol Howe (percussion, back up singer), and Michael Wittenbrink (violin). Thank you all for making the event a wonderful evening, and thanks to everyone who came to the event. We had a nice full house, and it was the first time I had a chance to enjoy the tantalizing food. The Big Blue Peacock drink that Drew created was also a hit. My abstract feather series is featured till April at The Scotch and Vine. 20% off all art at the show, and I have signed art cards of any art from my site for $2.50 a card www.lauriemillermodernart.com. A portion of all sales is donated to NCADV - Helping Women who have been abused by domestic violence - www.ncadv.org. In addition, I will be selling signed prints of my Whitney Houston picture at $10.00 plus postage fees. If anyone is interested you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support! It is much appreciated. I have written a few new songs (music and lyrics). I shall be sharing them soon. In the meantime, I wrote the song Whitney R.I.P. (featured on this blog posting) on my guitar the other night. It is a simple melody, but I wanted to write something. I also created the art dedicated to Whitney last week. I will try my best to post more frequently.
Nighty night. xxoo Laurie
