The Show is Ready

Walk by the River

No, I did not take off on vacation after doing the Flower Farm Luncheon/Journal Class. I have done 5 watercolor classes, 4 afternoons of advanced drawing classes, an afternoon of poster signing, AND I got ready for my show up at Three Pines Studio and Gallery in Cross Village. I have the paintings finished, framed, delivered, and they are hanging. The show opens tomorrow (Saturday, July 29th) at 2:00 - until 7:00. I'm wearing a cute little (it's all relative) summer dress and non-birkenstock sandals.

There was an article in the local paper about my show and opening, but to tell you the truth, I haven't read it. Those things make me really nervous! AND the pictures! How disappointing to see (and have the whole world see) that I should have had my hair trimmed, I should have smiled more, and I should have been 20 years younger! They (the newspaper) used a file photo. A FILE PHOTO! You know you live in a small town when the local paper has your photo on file.

Actually, I am very grateful for the publicity, and someday I will actually read the article instead of just taking my husband's word for it that it was okay. But that will be after the fact, when it doesn't matter anymore - everyone else will have forgotten it.

I will post pics of the show and of the painting demonstration I will be doing to promote it on Monday afternoon, July 31st.
