More Abstracts?

"Work in Progress"

The last few days have been quite eventful. So much so, that it pretty well left me in a state of near shock. I haven't slept much, painted, blogged etc., etc., So are you ready?!

Well, ... Thursday morning I went to pick up the work that has been on display at Fulnecky Law Firm for the past month. When we had first put this body of work up the secretary there had bought two pieces! which was so very sweet of her- and Thursday when we picked them up the Kristi, the lawyer there, bought three pieces!!! Yes, I was so excited- you see these are my very first sales!! Thank you at Fulnecky!

O.K. wait, that is not the end of the story- I had an appointment to take this work, which includes both abstracts and floral watercolors, plus the acrylic abstracts that I've been working on for the last few weeks to Hawthorns, a local gallery in downtown Springfield in the afternoon. I had twenty nine pieces that I took in. I expected that there might be a few out of these that they might take in. Well.....,

They said there were enough pieces to do a show- and asked if I would like to do my own show-
That's right I was totally blown away-
I said yes!

The show won't be until June and there is still room for more pieces. The last one that I did was the largest one, (remember the big canvas that I was so scared of and saved for last) and so if I can do some more large ones done they could all go together against one wall. So, I guess I am back to more abstracts!!

And so I've been so excited, honored and humbled by this. I am feeling encouraged and hoping to settle back down and get to work, or play! perhaps both work and play. Thank you all for the absolutely wonderful comments you have been leaving me as I have started blogging this new journey. You truly have been such an encouragement!! beyond what you can imagine.

I spent an absolutely wonderful afternoon with Elsie thrift store shopping, making plans and girl chatting! Rachel is cooking supper, so no cooking for me tonight! It's been a beautiful sunny day, although we did start out with snow this morning. It's Missouri.
Stay tuned!!
