Gratitude for the Month of Good Cheer -- and last year at this time!

May has been a month of absolutely wonderful moments -- two
openings, more shows unfolding, and a deliciously slow and
beautiful spring.  Tonight I'm posting a photo from a
show I was in a year ago at this time Water for Life.  It was
one of the highlights of my life in art last year.  And the photo
I'm including shows me with Grabrielle Fischer Horvath who
has this year just opened a fabulous studio/gallery space in
Niagara Falls.

The Water for Life show last year pretty much saved my artistic spirits
 when I broke my wrist quite badly and was in a cast
for five months.  This exhibition had everything -- fabulous artists
who are now a collection of online, and real world friends,
wonderful directors and curators -- Antoine Gaber and Angelina
Herrera could not have been more gracious.  The events
offered to us as artists were magnificent, and all in all it was

Now in the home of that first Water for Life show, Gabrielle
is creating a permanent artistic focal point for the area, and
that is really exciting for me.  Expect great happenings.  For one
thing she is hoping to get her huge, magnificent elephant
sculpture installed permanently in the area where her gallery/studio
is making its home.

Have a loving your life, and enjoying your memories day.
