OK, thanks.

I bow to technology - never could figure it out.

I still get the log-in message with that new link. Maybe it's created a public photo album that's viewable by any Facebook user (as opposed to a private album where you can restrict which Facebook users can see it).

No, it specifically says that it's viewable to non Facebook users, as well.

Clearly we have a technical problem, so belay my last.

Everyone return to your homes and places of business - nothing more to see here.

Chris Slatoff just emailed me this:

John, here is a link to an online review of the sculpture,

Chris

Begin forwarded message:

Dear Mr. Slatoff,
I had the pleasure of meeting you more than a year ago at the Salon of Dr. King concerning the library in Alexandria, Egypt.
It is a very small world. I was writing an article about the Pasadena Symphony and was invited to the home of Elaine and Peter Adams who gave me a tour that included your stunning sculpture, Fr. Electrico.
I wrote a review of the American Legacy Fine Arts Gallery, in which your inspiring sculpture is the focal point.

My deepest congratulations.
Your work is a masterpiece.

With deepest respect,

Nice review, Chris! "Fr Electrico", about which we are making a documentary, has received quite a write-up here.

This is beautiful.

And that praise is for the 3' statute. The 8' is all the more impressive.

I chatted briefly with Leticia this evening and mentioned the larger version.

Alan Neal Hubbs, in-house producer for Ray's Pandemonium Theatre Company, took a pilgrimage to see the 8 foot statue, just before it was to be prepared for bronzing. He was so awestruck with the work of art that he has asked to use a photo of just the right shoulder as artwork for the next play production, Yestermorrow.

That's what Chris was telling me - you will save me a programme, no doubt?

Pray, tell me Cathy was there with camera for anything important - my camera arm does not extend 2,678 miles!

Just got off the phone with Chris Slatoff, who tells me that the final piece of casting is scheduled to be done possible late April/early May at a party in LA! I told him that I would try my best to be there for it.

He spoke poetically of how the bronze would pour into the mold not unlike the pouring of the sun. I told him that just this week I read a story which struck me with a similar vision: The Golden Apples of the Sun.

"The cup dipped into the sun. It scooped up a bit of the flesh of God, the blood of the universe, the blazing thought, the blinding philosophy that set out and mothered a galaxy, that idled and swept planets in their fields and summoned or laid to rest lives and livelihoods."

In anyone of you Bradbury fans would like to attend the "it's finally done!" party for the Ray-inspired bronze piece Fr Electrico in Glendale this Saturday night from 6-9pm, please let me know. Yes, it will be catered.

Also, see here.

Magnificent! We have shared in the process of this for several year, it seems. To have the work of art completed is a wonderful accomplishment for all involved, especially Christopher Slatoff and Mr. Bradbury and their families. Congratulations.

Thanks for keeping us in the know of this, all along the way, Doug! Good luck on the filming.

The explanation which is within "here" is an absolute Must Read!

Last night was the unveiling party. It was a lovely event. Doug Spaulding is doing the documentary for the artist, Christopher Slatoff, and Ray so I'll let him post some of the photos from last night. The evening was attended by many of Ray's fans and close friends. A gaggle of Ray's theatrical actors were in attendance. Even Captain Beatty made an appearance. Of course, the majority of the attendees were true patrons of the arts.
