An amazing opening!

Some of the artists in the exhibition lined up for
a goodbye and Happy Holiday shot in front
of some of my work,with Kristal Hart, 
the TV interviewer on the left 
and Ruthie Tucker, the Gallery director
on the right.  
The Amsterdam Whitney Gallery held a wonderful opening
today -- The Silver and Gold Holiday Extravaganza Fete.
There are 11 artists in the show, with a wide variety of work.
The exhibition runs until February 2020

Kristal Hart from Manhattan TV came, and interviewed me and
the other artists.  Ruthie Tucker the Gallery owner and director
complimented my art in such a kind way saying that because
my art focused on trying to make people value the beauty in
the world, and save the planet, I was on Greta Thunberg's team.
She added that Greta has been named person of the year,
and she declared me "Canadian artist of the year!"  Woah.
That was lovely.

But so many people at the opening complimented my art.  Kristal
Hart said that whenever she sees a blue sky and beautiful clouds
she thinks of me.  An art agent said that I was a wonderful
colorist.  It was a pretty great two hours (the length of the
opening).  I will write more about the show this week.

And don't worry.  I come home to Canada today, will go into
my little studio, and get to work again.  But I must say it's
lovely to put your art out there and get such a positive reaction.

Have a loving what you do day.
