Thursday night rocked.  I was so touched by all the
people who came out in the rain to see my work.
Thank you to everyone.  It was great fun.

Our family is on a string of birthdays, that stretches
until mid-December now, and then of course there
is Christmas, and New Years.  The year is galloping.
So after the gallery opening we skipped out for dinner
to celebrate my son's birthday the next day, because
he was going to be out of town.  Then it was my husband's
birthday Saturday, and we celebrated Sunday too.  Two
sets of birthday songs, cake, ice cream, laughing, presents.
Next weekend we officially celebrate my son because he
was away, and hasn't had his gifts.  Whew!

And I'm behind on my blog.  So forgive me.  I love your
comments and will post more pictures soon.  This one's for
Flora Doehler, who wanted to see the scale of my painting.

Have a celebrating-everything day.

Barbara, you look gorgeous standing together in scale beside your magnificent landscape - you could easily stand as a poster child for exciting get-aways in NS. I’m looking forward to enjoying close up a view of what looks like a stunning body of work.

Congratulations!!!!
Marcia

Hi Marcia,

Thank you! It would give me great pleasure to show you the work. Thank you so much. I took my shots during the show with my phone and it was acting up. But I will add more. Meanwhile come to town. We will talk.

XOXOXOX Barbara
