Just a short recap of my Art Open House last night. I have no photos (is that a sin in today's culture??) as I was busy with the steady stream, and sometimes flood, of people who came to show their support of me and my art. It was truly overwhelming. I am so grateful for each and everyone who took the time, and braved the traffic (an accident on I-25 during rush hour of an overturned truck loaded with new cars) to get here. My son, for one, sat in traffic on the opposite side of the highway from the accident for 1.5 hours. Should have been a 20" drive! That is dedication and love. But he was one of many who got caught in that entanglement. The day was blessed with decent and unseasonably warm weather, which in Denver can turn on a dime, and boy, are we due for some weather.
New friends, old friends, friends of friends, neighbors, coworkers, young people and even a 93 year old. Who believe it or not went home with a painting! Some I have known for decades, and some I met for the first time last night. My mentor, Kevin Weckbach, showed up which for me, was epic. Got some glowing remarks from him and Sasha Ripps, another artist friend that came with him, which of course, carries so much weight. A very successful and rewarding evening, with people hanging out and talking about and buying art. I owe to my dear friend, Cindy, for hounding me into opening my home once again, after a 10 year hiatus. With many requests for me to do it again.
