Wind-Blown Art Walkers!
Last night, despite horizontal sheets of rain and impressive gusts of wind, Walaka and I prepared for my very first art show as part of the Roosevelt Art Walk. We set up the wine and food, lit the candles, labeled the art, placed signs indoors and outside, and come 6:00, we waited. And, then the first guests arrived at 6:30.
While no art-walkers from the neighborhood stopped by, about 15 invited guests braved the weather and were able to make it. It was a very sweet night, and I thank all of you--whether you were able to make it or not--for your support. What once seemed like a scary prospect to me (putting myself and my art out there) now feels much more doable, comfortable, and exciting.
I will have another show in January or February, with many of the same collages and some new pieces as well. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate next time!
