Asheville is a great little city, for those who haven't been. I met up with my good friends, Neil and Karen Hollingsworth (who's paintings are also in the gallery) - I so appreciated that they took the time to join me. We stayed at a brand-new hotel, the Aloft, smack dab in the downtown and right around the corner from 16 Patton - I highly recommend it for visitors.
I want to thank all those folks who took the time to come by Friday evening, I met a couple who came all the way from New Jersey and another couple from Raleigh and many more who really make me proud of what I do. Thank you all, I greatly appreciated you coming by.
Also a note about the Edward Hopper House Small Works Show that I submitted my work to - they rejected my paintings but I'm proud to mention several artists I know, Nancy Colella, Kathleen Coy and Stephen Magsig, were accepted and I'm thrilled for them.
