The Cleveland Botanical Garden Guren Gallery is selling a lot of my paintings. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a bit of a surprise. The gallery itself is not attended. I had hung signs indicating purchases could be made downstairs in the gift shop and hoped for the best. My Husband and I brought his Mom to see the exhibit this afternoon... It's so awesome to see those little red dots, see two above!! Big thanks to Kate and Jeff for all their hard work.I don't dine and dash (at least not in the last twenty five years, heh) but this afternoon I clipped some lilacs growing in an abandoned commercial lot.... and fled as if on fire. I didn't really plan what to put them in once I got back to the car but we had a pop bottle and my husband suggested we put water from nearby Lake Erie in it. Voila! Can't wait to paint these, I just hope the lilac police didn't follow us.
In other news, my dear friend Vinnie Harrity is doing some amazing landscape paintings and you should check out her blog. I met Vinnie at the Utrecht "Your Work" show--where we both received honorable mentions, she is really talented.
Have a great weekend everybody!!
