I had a lot of fun at the Gary Baseman reception on Saturday night which was packed with tons of fans, many of whom looked like they had walked right out of one of his paintings. Unfortunately something strange happened with my camera and I don't have the snaps of the great fashions and styles of the guests that I hoped to post.
It was also the opening night of Osteria Mozza, the fancier sister restaurant next to Pizzeria Mozza. I think this pizza definitely qualifies as one of my new obsessions. In addition to my fav squash blossom pizza I got to try a slice of the mushroom pizza. Heaven!
Even though I've lived in L.A. a long time and thought I was long over the novelty of seeing movie stars, I have to say that when Mario Batali waved at us on our way out and I got to tell him how much I love his pizza, I was thrilled like a geeky teenager! In case you're interested, Chowhound covered the opening night of Osteria Mozza in detail.
One of my other recent obsessions which I have been quietly savoring and keeping to myself is checking out the daily paintings of Edward B. Gordon over at dailypainters.com.
I love the way he captures people in private moments.
Because he's based in Berlin his paintings are always sold by the time I get my daily email. But one of these days I'm going to snag one.
