Women and the Garden Show at the Flint Institute of Arts Museum

My show at the FIA was a huge success.  I have been working on this show for about a year and it was so nice to see everything hanging on the walls.  The reception was full of friends, aquaintences and collectors.  My largest painting:  Light Dance, a 24x30 oil on canvas landscape sold to a wonderful man who planned to give it to his wife for their 1st wedding anniversary.  I wrapped it up in a silver sleeve and but a large red bow on it for him.  Another painting is sale pending.  Between the 4 of us showing there were around 45 paintings.  Here is a photograph taken at the reception of the Light Dance painting and an admirer.
