When I arrived for the Awards Banquet on Friday evening, I was delighted to find it had been sold that day. Don't you love a big red dot on your title tag?! What a nice way to start the night!
Daniel Greene was the judge of this year's Salon. He gave an inspiring speech during the banquet.
Saturday morning, Mr. Greene offered his critiques to those of us who took advantage of his observations. This is the master's hand commenting on Wide World. Doesn't she look a little apprehensive? Imagine what the artist was feeling!
The reception Saturday evening was just wonderful. Good friends came to help celebrate - Thank you! I also loved celebrating with the other artists - some old friends, some new- and taking in the the beautiful paintings. There isn't any way to absorb them all in one day or two, so I'll being going back several times before the ending of the show on April 22nd- to try to really see each of them. If you can make it to the Greenhouse Gallery before the end of the show, I really recommend it. You can also see the paintings online here.
Wide World is one of the 22 paintings from the show which have sold so far. Cool, right?
