I would consider my show to have been an amazing success! Each day we had a steady stream of people here for the entire allotted time, and my husband, my fantastic assistant Jess and I were kept very, very busy. I got to visit with many, many friends and made some new friends as well. The sales were beyond my expectations, and I have 2 commissions to start on right away! Paintings must be bundled up and set off to BC and the States, as well as delivered in and around Calgary. (And because there was literally no time for me to take pictures, I only have pictures of my set up, which I still have not downloaded...)

Thanks to all of you who attended my first solo show- for your wonderful support, encouraging words, and for the time you gave up to be here with me. Thanks to all of you who e-mailed me encouragement, for those of you who tweeted me and FB'ed messages. Your words have brought me great joy!

And now, it's off to bed after a very full weekend - but one that is now a very sweet memory!

Alvin,
From shortly after I started this blog I have looked to you for inspiration and never been disappointed. Your art is masterful, and your kind words have filled me with energy to continue. Thank you my friend!
