July Excitement

What a busy and exciting month it has been. I had the wonderful and unexpected opportunity to have my first solo show at the i5 Gallery in Gales Ferry, CT. 

The opening reception was such a fun and exciting night. It was a joy to be surrounded by the many friends, family members and visitors who came to help celebrate.

I knew I'd been working hard the last year or so but was still surprised to see just how much I had accomplished when I got to see all my work displayed like this in one place for the first time. I am grateful to Marge Anderson, the owner/director of the i5 Gallery who did such a fantastic job of pulling everything together for the show and the opening.

 One of the pieces from the show that went off to a new home.
"Lucky Fish" in the office of Trade Labels Inc. 

Just outside that window is this beautiful koi pond full of live lucky fish.

Summer Color

I've had my mac book for a year and a half now and I was thinking about all the features in iPhoto that I have never used. Soooo...  this morning I tried something new and sorted through the many garden photos I've taken so far this year to put together this one minute slide show. It was pretty easy - I used the "scrapbook" template and choose Clair de Lune for the music which just happens to be one of my favorite pieces of classical music.
