And my son Conor was there for the entire 3 hour sweltering evening, he's talking to Denise' friend Millie.
Then my sister (in pain from a horrible ruptured disk) stoically braved the heat and the lack of chairs to show suport...
My pal Bonnie drove down from Hingham (well, John drove, but you know what I mean!)
Putting on a show like this is a little like organizing a small wedding (except an hour before I was supposed to be there was the first time I thought about what I was wearing that night). There's an incredible about of work, not to mention the fact that I was painting right up until the day before we hung the show! It's very unlike a show at a real Gallery where THEY plan and hang and send out invitations, organize the refreshments, etc. THAT is starting to sound really good to me! But I hope if you see the show you enjoy it. Both Denise and I will be there all day on August 18 and 19, for the Open Studio Tour. I'd love to see you all!
