Guren Gallery Cleveland Botanical Garden

All my paintings, wired, sides painted, labels, guest book,
display materials, prices and signage ready to go.
The Guren Gallery is upstairs, here's a shot of the main entrance.
I took the ER administered bandage off after 12 hours-- 
That there is a homemade bandage.  Attractive, I know.  (:
We used an eye level string to get everything vertically aligned,
I am so proud of this show.
Also on display, the Magnolia I & II posters. 
The smaller signage is my bio, exhibit history and statement.
The large square paintings in this picture measure 20" x 20" 
They seem so much bigger in my studio!
 I still want to paint bigger this year!!
Here's a few pictures from last Friday.  My solo exhibit "Spring Rhapsody" is finally up at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens Guren Gallery.  Last week was very hectic!  Thursday night, I was cutting signage for the show and doncha know I nearly sliced off my left thumb.  Husband wrapped it in paper towels and sped me to the ER.  We watched American Idol as a doctor stitched me up.  It's healing nicely now and I made sure to get some good painkillers while I was there.  (: 

Spring Rhapsody features about 40 paintings and I cannot remember being more pleased with a show.  My Dear Mother and Sister helped me hang all, good thing as my thumb was still a throbbing mess on Friday.  The space is gorgeous, the lighting perfect and best of all:  They already sold two paintings! 

The show runs through May 15th, if you are in Cleveland please go see it!!   If you would like to receive a postcard, email me your address (even if you can't make it to the exhibit) I'd be happy to send you one!
