This one is my water colour painting I have done about 4 times. I have framed this last one as it is one I am finally happy with.

Thank you Dianne, Bhavna and Sarah, I am having so much fun with it. I go to our local art gallery. They have a have a dabble group. A few weeks ago I asked how one knows if their work is good enough to show.
The gallery coordinator replied that from what she has seen of mine ( as we have show and tell) I should put some in to the next launch. So I am showing for the first time launching next Friday aaaaaaaaaaah I am so nervous but excited too.

How exciting. I have not heard of a "launch." You have some nice work displayed.

Thank you Sarah. our local art gallery has a new display with different local artists roughly every month. So at the beginning of each month they have a launch where the artists can invite who they want, also any body else who is interested comes. Then we have wine and nibbles and somebody opens the display. I guess you would call it an opening.
