Proud Moments


I'm back home - returning from the opening reception for a three-artist show at the Morris & Whiteside Gallery held Friday evening - and I must thank all of you who came to the gallery, it was a great pleasure meeting you. There was a huge turnout, around 135 people, and I'd like to also thank Mother Nature for providing a beautiful, sunny, warm spring day and evening leading up to the party - it just made everything perfect.

My appreciation extends to Ben Whiteside and Jack Morris, the owners of the gallery - they really know how to treat their artists and patrons right. They sold a dozen of my paintings and continually make me beam with pride.

Speaking of beaming with pride, Charley Parker, the host of my favorite art blog lines and colors, featured my work in his latest post - please click here for that article. Thank you Charley, I'm honored to be included in your writings and observations.

Congrats on a successful exhibition, all your hard work has certainly been worth it. The most amazing thing in the world is seeing red dots before your eyes and more to come before the end of the show I hope. They look wonderful hung side by side :)
