Gallery at the Majestic

Brought the remainder of my 6 paintings to the new Gallery and attended a meeting that was approximately 2 hours of hashing over questions regarding hanging, volunteering, etc. It is looking good. I volunteered to help hand the initial works of all artists (I think there are around 35 or so) that have been accepted to be members. The hanging of all the works will fill the entire wall space in several rooms, and we will work on this all day, at least 8 hours, I am told. Gallery sitting is mandatory, and an extra 4 hours in September will be required, other than the gallery hanging hours. I have never hung an art show previously, so I am interested in learning. I have a few paintings that I want to completed as well within the next few weeks, so I have a full plate ahead of me including my other endeavors. It is exciting to be a part of this art community!

Bengal Alliacat

I was so inspired by my granddaughter Krystal's husband Zach's photo that he took of their Bengal cat that I had to bring forth my image. I love the results... currently being framed to enter into the Agawam art show (if accepted)! mixed medial collage......

Krystal and Zach's Wedding

It was fabulous.... like being in a dream. I took some photos of the "getting ready" process: makeup, hair, dressing....... and the ceremony outside in the garden..... and so many more.
Everything was excellent -- food delicious --- music by my son and his band, and so much more!

Friday night artwalk

Today I finished working in one of the wrecked journals to complete the series with one of my art groups, and another round robin altered art book was delivered while we were eating lunch!
I so enjoyed working on the book last night and this morning.... I had so much energy, I weeded the entire length of the fence in the back yard during the mid day sun.... very unusual for me.
The shower felt great. We are off to Easthampton to the Friday Artwalk this evening. Time to get some more energy and inspiration for creating more artwork.

My granddaughter is getting married this Sunday, August 15th, at the Liberty Hotel in Boston, MA. I am soooo excited! We will leave home early Sunday morning to partake in the fun and pictures before the ceremony. Looking forward to a wonderful weekend.

Krystal and Zach's Barbecue

We had such a nice time today at Krystal and Zach's barbecue, hosted by Krystal's mom, Wendy. It was a perfect day and so very enjoyable. The ride to Gloucester was an easy one, as the traffic was nil; the food was great, and the company excellent!
