Here are some photos from the show on Saturday. These particular pieces did not happen to sell, but that's fine. Actually, the one titled "Mother and Son" is one of my favorites and I was kind of glad it didn't sell. Not that I wouldn't still sell it, but I also enjoy displaying it at home.
The show was an awesome experience for me. I saw people that I hadn't seen in years, I was delighted that people took their time and really looked and interacted with the art. And I received so many favorable comments . When my husband showed me the grand total at the end, I couldn't believe it. I will have a nice check to give to Groundworks. I couldn't be more joyful.
Tomorrow Phil and I are spending the day and night in Chicago. We had originally planned this trip for my birthday, but postponed it when his mother became critical. I'm so glad we did; we would not have been able to relax. Now it comes at just the right time. We are planning to go to the Museum of Contemporary Art (my Artist's Date for The Creative Way group!), perhaps stroll around Navy Pier (the weather forecast is perfect), and then check into the Westin River North, hopefully overlooking the Chicago River. We have reservations at Joe's Steakhouse and Stone Crab, which gets wonderful reviews for their seafood. So it promises to be a wonderful getaway for the two of us. All these places, with the exception of Navy Pier, will be a first for both of us.
