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!
