The Gallery is Open....... It's Time to Party!


Click on announcement above to enlarge... please come to the party!


(Want to see more? Click here to see a Slideshow of the Gallery-23 photos with captions.)

Some cool moments:
-Working on a commissioned portrait in the beautiful north light that fills the room from a bank of five very tall, side-by-side windows. It's a dream fulfilled. I've worked in some very bad light over the years...
Believe me, the difference is amazing.

-Walking through the gallery and giving a live, narrated video tour of the gallery for the great folks who tuned in for my Wednesday online painting session about 8 days ago. (The tour part is just the first 10 minutes or so of the video... the rest is of a figure painting I'm working on.)

-Getting to know some of the artists whose works the gallery represents. I haven't met them all yet, but since I love their work, I expect that they're pretty cool, too.

Thank you to everyone who's sent good wishes and congratulations...
It means more than I can say.

Please, if you're anywhere near San Antonio on Saturday, October 2nd, come help us celebrate the gallery's opening from 4-8 p.m. The music will be wonderful, the refreshments will be yummy and the art will be beautiful. And if you're here, the company will be fabulous!!!

Thank you, sweet friends- you're the BEST! I hope you CAN come visit sometime... I'd love it. The party's two weeks from today and there's SO much yet to do, but I'm happy with what's already accomplished. I'm sorry I've been so preoccupied and haven't been very 'present' on my blog or your blogs, but please know your support means the world to me. XXXXX
