A great opening -- it takes a village

 Gill Cameron and me in front of a wall of our work.
Gill does the gorgeous watercolours, and the landscape
in the center is mine.

Friday night's opening of Painted Passions at the
Wychwood Barns was a wonderful event.  Both
Gill Cameron and I were so touched at the number
of people who came out to celebrate our art.
It is a beautiful show, and Gill's landscape
watercolour paintings, and my landscapes,
portraits, still life and abstracts work harmoniously
together to create a fabulous overall show.

Georgian Bay diptychs.
The show's on until today Sunday at 4 p.m.,so if you're in town and haven't see it please come, look at some art
and have a cookie or two.

Some guests were moved to romance by the atmosphere
our paintings created. Come and see if the show
has the same effect on you.

Guests at the show, Daniel Anaka, curator at Super Wonder
Gallery, me, and super artists Carly Smith, and Ramona Nordal.
Ramona and I have been in a couple of shows together.
The youngest guest with her admiring fans. 

A friend sent a tiny blurry photo which give you an idea
of how busy it was
Have a coming out to our show day!
