I participated in the San Francisco Open Studios for a few years. Nothing ever came of it in with respect to sales and I have decided that except for artists with studios in the big, popular areas, such as Hunter’s Point, it is a waste of time.
But I did get one good story from the experience.
A gay couple came to my studio and looked at the photos. Then they went back to this one and spent several minutes studying it:
Finally one of them came over to me and sheepishly asked, “What is it?”
I answered, “It’s a pubic mound.”
He replied, “So that’s what they look like. I’ve never seen one.”
