What an Opening Night
This is my room at the gallery around about 4.00pm Friday night. It took most of the day and the previous night to set up. Patsy had another room very similar. It's a lovely gallery with a great atmosphere and lighting.
We invited lots of people but were amazed at the number who turned up on the night it was fabulous, thanks to all you lovely people, they were spilling out the door at one stage. The lovely actress Beverley Dunn from 'Shine', 'Underbelly', 'Flying Doctors' and many more shows, officially opened it for us. It was a great success and we've had quite a few sales which is also wonderful.
More of the wonderful people.
The images on the left are some of my pieces and the ones on the right are Patsy's. Patsy makes these wonderful chairs, some are painted others are appliqued. It was too difficult to show the paintings as they are under glass and the reflections played havoc with the photos.
I've taken this week off as I'm doing a week long workshop here in Melbourne with the amazing Keith Lo Bue. Today was the first class and he really stretches you, but you see things in a different light. I'll post images when the class is over.
