One night, Conan's musical guest was a new-to-American-television Australian pianist/comedian named Tim Minchin. He sang a very clever, ribald song about an inflatable doll, that ended with a Beatle homage...and I was completely hooked! A true artist with both songwriting (ranging from the utterly ridiculous to gasp-worthy to sweet, deep and sublime) and mad grand piano skills, I checked out all his Youtube videos and thought, if he ever tours, I'm going!
Well, guess where I was this past Saturday night? Handing him this digital painting after his concert in Washington, DC!
The other half and I had wonderful seats:
Tim has a policy of meeting his fans after his shows, and he came out and charmed everyone (we were already charmed ;-)
Well, if I can't meet John Lennon or Freddie Mercury.... I'll settle for Tim! ;-)
He chatted with my other half too, and signed his ticket. I had actually printed two of my paintings, one for Tim to keep, and one to sign for me, and he did.
Then I had the audacity to give him my business card! :-O
It was worth turning down a few gigs to have this much fun!
Thanks to Danielle for the above video, and Conan for having Tim on his show in the first place. :-)
