I took one photo before the reception started and then put the camera away and forgot all about it while spending the next three hours with guests. Thanks to everyone who came - there was a wonderful turn out! It was wonderful to see so many friends. I, of course, loved the feedback and I also got to introduce friends to other friends, which is one of my favorite things to do. For those who couldn't make it - don't despair - Saturday we're having a moderated Question and Answer Panel with Susie McKay Krieser, Sally Jacobs, and myself at 3pm. We're also staying open until 7pm on Friday evenings and are open on Sundays from noon until 4pm.
After all the running around I've been doing; delivering artwork, buying sparkling water and ice, buying more ice, getting my car towed to the shop (again!), this week I'm attempting to get back into a more normal routine. Today I spent some time in the studio cleaning one painting, and wiring and finishing the edges of another, getting it ready to ship. If all goes well, by next week I'll get back to doing some actual painting.
