Misa's gallery debut
We haven't seen our dear friend Misa in quite a while because she has been working really hard on her art. Misa makes her living by being a graphic designer for a cosmetics company, but she loves art and has been trying to get her creative juices flowing once again. Juan and I stopted by her first gallery opening and gave her our support. Misa, along with a few other artisits, hung their work at a little gallery just a few blocks off the main road in Ginza (which is like the Rodeo Drive of Tokyo). Misa's prints were influenced by an ideal of a decadant and romantic past. Scenes of a polo game, a banquet, and an arisotcratic couple at a ball and at the opera hung on the wall. Misa's most time consuming project was her mini book. Her mini-book which we purchased only after she promised to sign it for us was all about drinking and world remedies for hangovers. Something Misa said she did a lot of research in (LOL). Juan and I were so happy to see all of Misa's hard work. As we left we made promises of getting together for dinner sometime in the near future (which is something we always say when we meet).
Great work Misa! We are so proud of you!!!!
