Making Guacamole with My Ancestors
Coming soon!

Making Guacamole with My Ancestors--what a great title! Working on new solo show for 2024. My avocado tree better be ready and loaded with beautiful ripe avocados. Buying avocados at the market can be a crap shoot. You buy what you believe are ripe avocados, you get home, slice the avocados open and you discover they're rotten! Gawd, I hate that! On a positive note, when you get a delicious ripe avocado--it's heaven!
