No Gullywashers, Microbursts or Hailstorms

 In fact, the weather outside was perfect, and there was a lot to do in downtown Fredericksburg for a Monday night.  Attendance was fabulous at my opening, and eight of my paintings have found new homes.

Thanks so much to all of you for your encouragement and good wishes during the birthing of the show. 

Here are some highlights.  Some of these were taken on my camera by my buddy Lynette Reed, who helped me hang the show.  Others were taken by Bob Martin, a photographer at our local paper, who, as far as I could tell, just happened by Bistro Bethem last night.  My camera was lying idle, and he picked it up and began shooting.  Thanks Bob!


Son, Will, helped me hang the show.

It was a great opening and I wish I hadn't had another event to get to because there were so many great people there! I did notice that the walls of Bistro seemed to have been waiting for a show just like yours--your colors and the wall colors complemented each other so well.

It's just the beginning; congratulations!
