Thanks, Dennis, Annie, Jennylynn, and Danielle.  I treasure the support I get from everyone here at PB. Without it, my art would still look like child's scribbles.

Great news Mea!  You have worked so hard and have come so far.  Thrilled for you.  Wishing you a very successful showing.

Thanks, Jill.  I'm all polished and ready to head out the door with my three custom-made quilted pouches to carry the paintings.  I have all the paperwork in order, so good to go.

We were working so hard to get all the paintings up that I forgot to take any photos, but I will at the reception on Sunday.

The gallery is actually a big open lobby of the golf club house.  Quite spacious.

I was proud that my three paintings looked as good as most of them.  Mine were very different and were quite noticeable.  The nene goose is one of the very first ones as you come through the door.

I learned a lot about hanging art for a gallery showing.  The curator even said I had some good ideas for her when I suggested certain paintings for certain places.

All in all, a great day.  Thanks, everyone for being so supportive.

Oh! Mea, I am SO EXCITED for you.  Please remember to take the camera so we can all see how your paintings look hanging up with all the others. 


Danielle thank you for telling me how to "move" the icons.  Didn't have a clue.  Thanks so much.   Patricia
