"Sitting" the show

The Don Valley Art Club Spring Show at Todd
Morden Mills is on next weekend too, and if
you're interested in owning fine art, it's the place
to go. More than 150 painters and graphic artists
have work on display in the magnificent gallery
created in the Old Mill building.

Today I was sitting the show, but instead used the
giant space to circle endlessly and try to get my
steps. In the process I sold eight paintings for the
club, and was overjoyed at that. So it was a very
good day.

I haven't shown you the final version of my
Mother and Child, but I took a photo of it today.

Have a getting-out-to-the-shows day.

Barbara, you have outdone yourself on this one! I have been watching it's progression and could not wait to see your final touches. From the playful pose to the bright geometric background elements...everything about this is stunning! The charming look on that little boy's face pulls at my heartstrings.

Eight paintings! Congratulations!!
