This exhibit was created to celebrate Bangkok Chef/Owner Raungdet Titisuttikul's ("Danny") birthday on Valentines Day February 14. Bangkok Cafe has been a strong supporter of local art for many years.
Come and visit the exhibit--we all need a little more love in our lives. I will be showing one piece--Comfort III--as seen above and on a previous post. In fact, as I was standing in line at the pharmacy waiting to pick up my family's prescriptions, I realized how uptight everyone is. I had one woman practically sitting on my lap in an effort to get to the counter faster. I could actually smell the peanuts she had been eating in line on her breath. Anyone ever heard of personal space? But then, as I was driving out of the parking lot and watching every driver's harried expression, I realized, you just gotta chill. There is nothing we can do about the weather (storm coming tomorrow and people are freaking out!)
What we can do is breathe and realize that a little kindness goes pretty far in making or breaking someone's day. There was this one woman in line who let a pregnant woman go before her and started chatting with her two-year old son. How sweet was that? Then, on the way home, I made room for some cars to go around a fire truck parked on the curb, and the looks of relief on the drivers' faces was just so gratifying.

Anyway, I have a whole series I am working on with photographs of people and if anyone wants to use one of their own photographs and commission me to make a piece that is meaningful and specific to you or the people you love, just contact me. Let's spread some love through art.
