Solo Show Success

Since this was my first solo show, I didn't know what to expect and kind of worried that not too many people would come but I was pleasantly surprised and relieved that it was a great turn out. I was a little overwhelmed but truly enjoyed meeting so many great people. I appreciate all the positive feedback and was a great feeling to notice how everyone responded to different paintings. I think part of being an artist is when you're working, to dig deep within you and create something worth looking at or feeling from or responding to and then to send it out into the world for others to be a part of that creation.

I have to thank everyone at the Lynn House Gallery for all your hard work and allowing me to show my work and share pieces of my spirit, and to the folks at GATO for hosting all that delicious food! It couldn't have been any better! and thank you to everyone that attended, all my family and friends and new friends and acquaintances. Thanks for being a part of this wonderful event. And, a very special thanks to our family elder who was so gracious enough to do the native blessing before the show.

I really like what you said about digging deep within to create something worth feeling from and sending it out into the world. I think artists have no other choice but to do this!

Also, congratulations and thanks for sharing pics from the show! I would have enjoyed attending that one! Your paintings are all so beautiful. :D

Wish I could catch that one - it must be THE watercolor event in CA this year! I look forward to seeing your paintings in person one of these days, and it would be great to meet you.
