Fabulous opening tonight

the Kristal Hart show on Manhattan TV.  

The gala opening tonight at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery was
so much fun. The gallery Director Ruthie Tucker does a great job
creating a festive event. I loved how my work was displayed
exactly the way I pictured it only better. Champagne was
flowing.  I met and talked with fascinating people. 
All of the artists there produced wonderful work.
I was interviewed for the Kristal Hart show on
Manhattan TV, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

More tomorrow, as it's really late and we have a big day
planned.

Have a delighting-in-the-great-things-in-life day.

Yes, you really do, Barbara! And so do your pictures! I wasn't aware of how big they were - it's nice to see that here. I am thoroughly enjoying your descriptions of your New York adventure and admire your ability to even sketch inbetween (as always). Thank you so much for sharing and enjoy the rest of your stay!

Hi Liza,

Thanks so much. It is such an awesome city -- like London I'm sure. Something happening every minute.

Hi Sheila,

It was so fabulous. Being in New York is a definite shot in the arm -- exciting things to see everywhere, and art is vital in that city.
