That was a stretch (my word for the year!)
I enjoyed every minute of the private view and the company of Mary and Grace, long-time commenters here on the blog, and friends and family as well as people I had not met before from the gallery's own mailinglist. I talked my head off. My friend Ann, Mary (from Washington DC) and Grace (from Paris) had a lovely meal together after the event.
I am so touched that so many people cane, from near and so far! Thank you all, and to all the staff who made the occasion such a success.
I am starting to load images of all the paintings on my Studio page....
