Hot off the presses, here's  the postcard (front is the painting, back is the writing) for my upcoming show Feb 14th at Capital Public Radio! The show is titled "Destinations - Transforming Vacation Photos into Art" and the art represents places I've visited locally, nationally and internationally.

They've sent out a few thousand of these to their members and will be emailing 20,000 electronic invitations as well.  There's also a press release that will be distributed to the media.  I'm going to host a private reception on Feb 12th since the 14th is Valentine's Day and I don't know how many folks will be gallery hopping that afternoon. Luckily,  I've already sold 3 pieces - nice to see red dots on those price tags in advance! I'll be donating 10% of the sales proceeds back to the nonprofit who's hosting this exhibit - they only do 4 a year so I'm feeling so honored. Wish me luck!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Very professional Sharon, I love it. You certainly seem to be on your way in the art world, congratulations.
I wish I could be there to see the exhibit and chat with you about it.
Maybe one of these days.
Best wishes,
Brian

Sharon,

This is all so exciting.  I wish I lived in Sacramento so I could attend.  I am so happy for you.  Your success is our success.
