My First Art Show

Lots of excitement around 
here.  These are some shots of a few of the entries in a recent 
city-sponsored, juried art show.
  My first show and my little women
 (12 x 12) were somewhat
 dwarfed by the large canvases.  It was a fun evening and important
 to me as I wanted to see how the process works.  The venue was Yoga Works, and all 
was done in a professional manner.
  We had the
 usual wine and cheese
 but also two gentlemen playing 
a cello and acoustic guitar.  
And best of all
 I sold my first piece of art - my little woman with the butterflies
 on her shoulder.  That is probably the most exciting part of the
 entire process.  It inspires me to do more on canvas!!  I seem to do most of my art in my journal
 as a journal take up a lot less room than canvas.  I have promised
 myself to dig out that large canvas and do something with it as well.

And finally my two little women
