my husband, the photographer,

on my painting behind me.)

Tonight was not nearly as busy as the first opening of All That Jazz a wonderful exhibition at the Heliconian Club on until the end of March.  I have a painting in a corner of the show, and quite high up.  As you can see in the photo -- the piece of brown in the upper right corner of the painting is part of a decorative support for the roof of the former church that houses the Heliconian Art Club.  So the challenge was how to get a painting with my work in the show.  I had help today from my husband Steven van Schaik, and club member and amazing artist Nola McConnan, who is currently showing in New York City.  

Between the two of them we finally got me at a height that was not too dangerous and you can see my work.  For my friend Miranda in the Netherlands, and my friends in the Florence Biennale I am in the Happy People Pose. And behind me the bright painting of Colours of Joy

I hope you'll get out to see the show this month. I'm still having trouble with Google, so I tried to post a photo of the show and it wouldn't allow me to. If I can put it in tomorrow I will.

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

I was super tired, and it was hard to get a great photo. But I'm glad I climbed up and got it. My painting is way up there.
