I had a fantastic time at the Asheville Humane Society show yesterday! First, I must thank the Humane Society and Harmony Motors for sponsoring the show, and a big shout-out to Jim Fulton of the Asheville Humane Society for all his help and support to me, both during and throughout the show.
Secondly, thank you to the 21 friends who showed up to support me and to see my art! You guys really made the whole thing fun and special for me, and I was so touched that you all came.
I also met some wonderful people who purchased my art and really made me happy to be showing my work. Thank you so much! Your comments yesterday meant the world to me. And thank you, also, to the people who were already in my circle of friends who purchased a piece last night.
In addition to the paintings I sold, two of them that I had as NFS because I want them for shows are now promised to people I really enjoyed meeting when I am ready to sell them! I was so touched by the things they said about those paintings...
I also am thrilled to have met met an artist, Angela Alexander, who has been showing and selling at the Woolworth Walk for years. She spoke very highly of the Woolworth Walk as a great place for artists to be, so now I am even more looking forward to having a space there! It was truly a bonus for me to meeet Angela. I already have owned one of her prints for years, and she was so nice and generous, sharing a lot of resouces and ideas with me. Check out Angela's work! She does contemporary dog paintings and has a unique personal style. And, she uses acrylics, too!
I need to seek permission from the people who helped me behind the scenes to post their photos with a thank you. Until then, THANK YOU SO MUCH Cynthia, Deb, Kevin, and Jim (same Jim).
I was supposed to basically leave my work up till the end of the show, but one painting had to go home early, and it left before I got a photo of the entire show (see the blank spot). But it went to a great home with a super-nice person!
