opening night!

Friday night was the opening of my show, Depending Upon the Nature of the Beast, at Three Graces Gallery, and it was such a beautiful night!
On the left is the old-fashioned photo stage I created. I wanted it to look like the setting of one of my paintings. Further below are some pictures of it in action. :)
There were already birch trees in the gallery, which made me so happy!

The back windows of the gallery look out over the harbor. We had spring snow and it looked so beautiful.

My family, who helped me so much!
Friendly Toast after. Breakfast for dinner!!!
It was the most wonderful night!! Thank you so much to Kim for making a beautiful opening night, and to my friends who came all the way to Portsmouth for it.
The pieces are now available online here
I hope you're all having a beautiful weekend!!! Did anyone else get random snow?

Congrats on your opening! The gallery looks wonderful.

We did get random snow here in MN, too. And here I though winter was over.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Best Wishes,
