Best. Night. Ever.





Yes!

My opening was a huge success. It surpassed anything that I had imagined it would be. Yvonne and Vikki, who run the gallery, are two amazing women. They are such a pleasure to work with.

The gallery space is beautiful. Both ladies did such a great job displaying my work. It looked lovely. I think it was the perfect space for my pieces. I sold 14 out of 28 on opening night! Yay! It had to be one of the best nights of my life. Really.

I was also featured in the local paper, which is just so amazing to me.

The rest of my trip was wonderful too. I loved hanging out with my friend Kim, and catching up. We went to the pool, we did a little shopping, we ate some good food, and drank lots of good coffee. Thanks K! You're the best!

congratulations! it sounds wonderful. I really love your exhibit title. the things we left behind. it resonates with me as someone who purged most of her belongings to move, and now will have to move again.

sigh.
