Learning to say Yes! has brought some crazy wonderful experiences into my life; my recent visit to Romania has to be one of the very best examples of positive reinforcement ever. What a treat to visit such a beautiful part of the world, to meet so many interesting people, and to paint just a tiny bit of the life of the village where I stayed. As usual, when I travel, I brought way more art supplies than I used. There were just too many temptations!
Several of my little paintings became thank-you gifts to my generous hosts, but most of them just didn't get made. On this trip I learned that a quick sketch might be all I'd have time for. I may not have as many paintings as I would like, but my sketchbook runneth over.
I've got an exhibit opening at the Canvas Gallery this Friday, November 5th, from 4:30 to 7:00 pm.This show will include my little paintings from Romania as well as recent work from Juneau.
Click on the 2010: Canvas Gallery photo album to your left to see work that will be in the show. Tom Locher will be there, at the piano, bringing elegance to the reception and I hope you can be there, too.
