My show at Art Departure opened this past Saturday!
It was a bit difficult to take photos inside but it looked so wonderful! I can not thank Jaye and Mary enough. I loved what they did and how my work is presented. So cool! I walked in and saw it for the first time on Saturday myself. Thank you Jaye and Mary for showing my work this month and thank you for all of your hard work.
A HUGE thank you to my dear friend Tera who I not only collaborted with (there are 2 pieces in this show from our collaboration). But, who helped me learn all about matting my own work and helped me to frame like 15 of these pieces. I don't know what I would do without your help. You were such a trooper and so patient with me! I adore you and I hope we can collaborate again very soon!
I had to show you guys what was going on in the back! This is the classroom where Jaye teaches at the gallery. She was so kind to get the kids set up to do art during the opening. They had a blast and I wish I had photos of their work. It was really fun and vibrant and I'm sure a much better way to spend about an hour for these kids! The three girls on the right side are my nieces :)
I have to thank my two beautiful Sisters! They are my heart. These two have always been my biggest cheerleaders and having their support means the world to me. Thank you Stephi and Michelle, I love you!
I'm not sure why but my Husband and I were literally incapable of taking a good photo in the gallery (haha)! Even though my Husband, Jimmy, is "Master of the Selfie" (usually). This one will have to do. Nonetheless, of course another big thank you to my wonderful Husband, a huge support in my life. He put up with my craziness over the last two months and my taking over of just about every room in our house.
Sadly, I did not get a photo of me and my Parents at the gallery, but they were there, just like they always are and always have been. I have absolutely no idea who I'd be, what I'd be, or where I'd be without these two. They are my heart and soul and it is impossible to express the love I hold in every part of my being for these two. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and for always being there, no matter what. I love you Mums and Daddums.
