I Sold Three Paintings at My Opening Last Night

As mentioned in this blog post the other day where you can see the images in the show up close, last night I had a one woman show opening of small, bright, affordable abstract works of mine in Byrd’s Books in Bethel, CT. It was a snowy 6 degree evening, but I still sold three paintings! And there is still plenty of time to see these 25 paintings; they will be there until Valentine’s Day.

This was a joint effort. First, Thanks to Byrds Books for having me! I did all the art, but my husband did all the framing, and our youngest daughter did a great job hanging the show (so appreciated; thank you both!). And thank you to the blog readers, church friends, book club people, and knitting club folks that came out in the cold to the opening!

I didn’t take many pictures, but the ones in this post will give you a sense of it. My work looks good on a thirteen foot wall in the store.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

  2. […] Naugatuck library contacted me with a request for a show, having seen newspaper publicity from that show at Byrds books last January, where I ended up selling nine paintings. It is a delight for me to discover this lovely jewel of […]
