OK, So I missed my own art reception

That's Right Folks,
I missed my own art reception.

I hear it was great fun, was well attended, great food,
sold six paintings.
I, however was in the hospital having a fairly serious gall bladder attack.

My husband, Jim and my daughter Kari carried on for me.
Maybe I should miss all my receptions because as I said,
I sold six paintings.
I thank all of you who came so much,
I thank all you who bought my art very very much!!

I love what I do, but it's good to know someone else likes it too!

was my first painting I did in the 30 in 30 project.
I hadn't painted in a while and was rather concerned I couldn't do it.
But, I picked up the brushes and as my backyard as my reference I painted this.
I was very happy with it and was glad when a collector of mine,
Patricia, wanted it.
It's a 10" x 8"  acrylic on a panel

was not part of my 30 in 30, but Shelley didn't care.
 She wanted it, so it now has a forever home with her.

It's a 6" x 6" acrylic on a canvas panel and was framed in a
wooden shadow box frame.
I like those frames because they can hang, stand or sit on an easel.

  First Saturday in May
also found its forever home with Susan Lunt.
She is from Utah and is living here serving in the Temple for 3 years
and she wanted something to remember Louisville by.

I painted this 6" x 6" acrylic on a canvas panel from a photograph I took
years ago before the great big remodeling job.
Of course the spire hasn't changed, but I had so much fun painting this.

I will show the other three that were purchased in my next post.

For now it's off to the Dr. and hopefully a good report on my gall bladder.

Again thank you so much for coming and checking out my show.

It will be up for the month of August at the Carroll County Library,
Carrollton, KY.



  1. I'm so sorry to hear you haven't been well, good health is everything isn't it? congrats on the sales, that is just super. Stay well, big big hugs.

  2. So pleased you sold 6 paintings, congrats!! That does not make up for not being able to be there but it sure helps! Hope you are feeling better now:)

  3. You're so right Barb, good health is everything. You're right Karen, It is great to sell, but it is also great to hear the comments from people who attend art receptions. It's great to paint but it's also wonderful to know that other people like it as well.
