An Exciting Evening . . .

Monday night Lou and I attended the opening of the 60th Annual Patient Art Show sponsored by The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the Patient Recreation Department.  As a former patient I had the wonderful opportunity to share some of my work.  All the proceeds go directly to the artist.  Although I always hope my work sells, even if it doesn't the experience far exceeds that aspect.  

I had a wonderful surprise from a dear friend who attended the show when he showed up with that lovely bouquet of flowers I am holding!  

I chose 4 of my recent modern abstracts to include in the show.  I was very excited to see them on display!  Everytime I walked by it was hard to believe they were mine.  

This painting is indeed my favorite.  It feels so much like "me"  I titled it "Street Reflections".  I hope to create more with this palette.  Love that graphite gray!  

What a way to start off spring!  I am currently working on my first commission and writing an upcoming article for publication in the fall.  More to come on those soon!!

I hope all is well in your world!  Will visit you all soon and see what you have been up to!
