Oh, and we made the 10/11 News channel twice; here, and here.
Lots of good friends braved gorgeous temps outside to spend the afternoon with us...
... to catch up on friendships ...
... and renew acquaintances ...
... and to enjoy being seranaded by local talent Helen Johnson.
Oh yes, and to spend time appreciating not only my Land Marks exhibit, but the Wings Over the Platte exhibit as well.

Nearly a third of the paintings from the Land Marks exhibit ended up in the collections of discriminating patrons. Pleased beyond belief barely scratches the surface of describing the feeling.
I have always painted for myself, which is a risk. I have no idea if my work is acceptable to the market or prevailing decorating schemes or next year's colors. When someone adds my work to their collection it is profoundly satisfying because it is based on something deeper than a passing fad.
It's like getting the secret password to an awesome private club, complete with a covert handshake and sly wink. Pretty exclusive. Very special.
If you'd like to join the club, it's not too late. Membership is limited, but we can make an exception for you. See Land Marks here for a short time only.
