It's been such a long time since I made an entry I almost forget how to do it! Life continues to move at such a fast pace, doesn't it? Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and then we'll have less than a month to get all of our holiday shopping and decorating done! This year I think I will try to get all of my Christmas decorations set-out during Thanksgiving week. I really don't like to decorate before Thanksgiving has even taken place, but it always takes me so long to get everything out that by the time I finish I don't ever feel like I have time to enjoy the holiday decorations. So, I just decided I might as well jump the gun and go for it! My hubby will be off work the whole week, so he suggested we get it all out while he's home.
I'm very happy to announce that last week was the opening of my very first Solo Art Exhibition! This show was booked a year and a half ago... that's how far in advance the gallery books their shows! It's at the Greenfield Banking Company's main branch in their Art Gallery. This bank has had their own gallery for over thirty years, booking artists for one person shows. I have twenty-two large paintings hanging, plus another fifteen or sixteen small pieces displayed on a center island in the middle of the gallery.
If you happen to be visiting, or live near Indianapolis, you can catch my show now through the end of the year. Here's the pertinent info:
