Good News

Summer Days

Work in Felted Wools & Thread

Yesterday I heard from Carol Currie at the Carriage House Gallery and she sold two of my pieces on the weekend. Yeah! Sounds like it was just someone who walked in to see the current show and happened in some way or other to see my work. When I did the television interview a few weeks ago they needed some of my artwork for the shoot so I decided to bring it all up and just leave it. I guess in hindsight that was a good decision on my part. Anyway, it is going to feel good going into the show with two pieces sold.........

Paul from the Purple Hills Artist Tour just emailed my artist page which I am quite impressed with. They did a great job. You can see it here

Today is going to be a crazy day in the studio. I am still finishing one piece that must go to the framers tomorrow morning as well as two other small pieces for matting. I have butterflys in my stomach already and the opening isn't until Friday......yikes! Yesterday I attended a baby shower for our friends Andy and Laurie. I spoke with a big group of my friends who are all intending to come out to the opening on Friday night. There is nothing like the feeling of standing in the middle of the gallery and seeing your friends walk through the door. In that moment I truly know the meaning of the word "friends".

Have a great day

Congratulations, Melody - terrific news! I bet Alyson would like that story...

I love the felted fiber painting - before reading I was trying to guess whether it was painted or thread.

Thanks Cynthia. I'm pretty pleased going into the show with two already gone. Perhaps I'll make contact with Alyson. Take care,

Congratulations! sales before the opening! and it's nice to know friends will be there for support. I'm sending supportive good vibes from the west. I really like that piece you posted as well.

Thanks Ellen, it does feel good knowing that if nothing else sells at least two pieces have. I'm feeling those supportive vibes from the west already. Hopefully one day I'll make it out there for a visit.
