my wall at the exhibition... the little chunky paintings +1
Well, last night was quite a trip ... Rainer and I drove down to the opening at Market 100 just as the first drops of rain began. The place was packed with people and quite a lot of art. We were late (as usual) and just as the rain started and the heavy doors started to blow in - the wind picked up and bam! Lightening struck the rennovated church steeple in Market Square and Jean from McLane law offices said that my painting: "Fireflies" was the judges choice for best in show.
Quite a surprise. But a very nice one. Thank you jury!
The steeple was a horrible loss to a group already working hard to raise money to rennovate and refurbish it. Not good! There seems to be some thoughts that it will recover through insurance though, let's hope so...
Then ... the rain and gale force winds stopped and we enjoyed the rest of the evening with some Mumms after a dinner with friends at Shalimar and drove home thinking of what I should spend the prize money on. Suggestions?
Now back to reality and a little weeding of the garden, a little painting and a lot of computer entries for the new online shop! Thank you all who have stopped by already with such lovely comments!
