An Exhibit and A Reception

Since my last blog post, I've been working constantly on fabric pictures for an exhibit at the wonderful Create Artisan Studio, where I frequently take classes. I knew that I wanted to concentrate on faces, which I love to draw, and that evolved into the idea of adding little stories to them and calling the exhibit "Narrative Portraits". I then decided to focus on women, and they became "Empowered Women" - a lot to live up to!

Here are my ladies:


…and, finally, this is my depiction of my wonderful daughter:

The reception for the show was so heartwarming - a lovely turnout of old and new friends - more than I ever expected. Here are some photos:

And, finally, me with my supportive husband, Bill! Couldn't have done it without him!

It was so good to work so hard toward a goal and have such a satisfying result. I'm very grateful to have had this terrific opportunity!

Thanks so much for visiting!

Judy, my sweet souled friend. What a marvelous collection you've created. You HAVE been busy in your absence from your blog!
Such a treat for all of us to see what you've been up to.
And such a cute couple.
