View Full Version : Solo Show

My Solo Show opening last night went well. It was a lot of fun; met some great people, to include a 15 year old boy who walked me and a group of others through the exhibit offering his insight and analysis on each individual piece. The young man was delightful, being so open, genuine, and forthright with his thoughts; and he had no idea that I was the artist!

The work was positively received and I sold three paintings. It will hang through the end of September.

Here are some snapshots:

Jim- we on WC have been so fortunate to have had an up-close and personal relationship with you and the paintings. Now the rest of the world is getting a chance to enjoy them, too.

Congrats on the sales, I wish I could afford at least one of them..

Thanx for sharing your recent success with us, it is inspiring!

Congratulations. I have learned quite a bit by observing your directions in abstract art. It is good to see that the public is recognizing your talent. Best of luck. Mike

Nice display and the work you hung all compliment those near them. Wish you well and many more sales to come. I love the part about the boy offering insight, that was fortunate as well. We can learn so much from how people perceive our work when they are not guarded.
congratulations Barb

I want to thank each of you for your congratulations and well wishes, they are appreciated. I also want to thank you all ( you know who you are) for all the constructive criticisms and comments and your encouragement during my time here. I have learned so much from so many of you and in no small way owe any art success I have, big or small, in some part, to each of you. So just a thank you from my heart.
