Despite the pouring rain, the opening was full of guests. Terry, owner of the Auburn Gallery did a wonderful job of hanging the show and the gallery looked spectacular.
I was so pleased to see so many of my friends and family come out, the support was overwhelming. Some had to come quite a long way to be here. I was also thrilled to see other bloggers, Laura and her Mom from That Grrl and Ed and his wife from the Cottage Blog. It is a treat to put faces to some of the friends we meet on-line.
A lovely gentleman that owns a farm in the area stopped by and shared stories about his farm and of one of his neighbours that has chosen to forgo electricity. I am quite looking forward to visiting his farm and the nearly ghost village that it is a part.
“Wheat Field Ruin” is currently on its way to Chicago with a lovely couple that were up visiting friends in the area.
I am quite exhausted and I must say I will be happy to rest for a little while before I launch into the next series of paintings. In the meantime, and over the next several days, I will start to post the paintings that I have, so long, been holding back.
