It's been a week of ups and downs...
** The gallery opening for my newest work takes place tomorrow, March 9 at Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, Alberta from 4-7pm...It's a fabulous gallery in a lovely little foothills community and I would be so pleased if you could join me. A definite up. :)
** Hung the High School Exhibit...Spectacular work, as usual. It looks wonderful, I just wish the lighting in the library was a little better so photographs would do the work justice. Another up.
** Less people came to the High School Art Gala than previous years BUT they all stayed, engaged with the work and spoke to the students about their work. The Georgie Girls choir sang beautifully and were highly admired by all. Started down and ended up.
** Our beloved and beautiful bassett hound Ruby passed away...the lowest point, of course, but we knew for some time that this was coming as had a few major health issues, was thirteen and had lived a long and happy life. Painting in the studio was balm for my soul but I did miss my studio buddy.
** Enjoyed the 'Crossroads' opening with friends last night. I always enjoy going to someone else's exhibit, especially when I've had peeks into their new body of work and finally get to see it live. Definite up!
** My largest piece showing at Inglewood Fine Arts has found a new home...a real highlight for an artist. No matter how long I do this, I'm always amazed, in awe, very pleasantly surprised, and absolutely, positively honoured when my work travels to live with others. This and with the opening tomorrow the week is definitely ending up.
