Artwalk opening party goes to the wee hours

Well Artwalk visitors, this artist may be a bit tired
for official day one.  The party tonight began at 8 p.m. and
went on until 3 a.m. when the last visitor went
happily home.  I'm having some issues with blogger and
I don't know if you get to see this picture large anymore,
but it's one of the pictures in the show.

  I counted tonight and I have 58 paintings in my Artwalk
show. It's a combination of old and new, favorites and even
commissions loaned for the weekend.  It's so nice to
see that work again, and realize that I still love it.  I
bless the collectors who loaned me their work, the
friends and neighbours  and family who came by tonight,
and my dear friend Josephine for making the best
pizza which everyone devoured.

Have a life-is-one-great-party day.

I was able to see this lovely pitcher of flowers in the larger size when I clicked on it. The painting is striking.

Best wishes on fun and success this weekend with the artwalk. (You can sleep when it's over!)

Your painting clicked to the larger size. No problem here. And it is a wonderfully colorful and happy painting!

The Artwalk is obviously a lot of fun and a huge success! And as Elizabth said - you can sleep when it is over! :-)

Hi Linda,

How right you are. It has been a complete blast, and in an ideal world I'd be holed up in my pajamas for days. But life, and art must go on!

Thanks for all of your kind comments.

Take care,

Barbara
