good adventure

today valentina and i went to our secret spots in the suburbs.  i walked into a vintage store/ gallery only to find original frances costa paintings there. just hanging up not being guarded by security no bureaucratic bullshit.  It was the most exciting thing.  There were small paint sketches for a mural he had been commissioned to do back when the government paid artists. also two beautiful portraits one of katharine hepburn.  buddy the owner told me about a time he was in san francisco looking at a mural by diego rivera at the art institute there.  He had just missed the bus and asked these two ladies for a ride. TURNS OUT one of these ladies was the one and only angela davis. i thought this story was amazing. he gave me the newspaper for free
