I am very grateful for the outpouring of interest shown by folks from Sandusky and well beyond, old friends and new, who made the trip on a rainy Friday, January 15, 2016 to Carrington Arts Gallery to see my work.  It was a wonderful evening, full of happy conversations and warm colors on the walls.  Marsha Carrington really knows how to host an exhibition, and her work alone shone in the "playroom" display, while mine was featured on all other remaining wall space.  What an honor to be a co-artist celebrated in this show.  The gallery remains open for viewing and purchase 12 to 5 Tuesday through Thursday, and 12 to 7 on Fridays and Saturdays through February 20.  If you have not seen the exhibition, please come as I know you will enjoy it!

Meanwhile, Danny continues with golf, playing chess at Veteran's Home, serving daily mass, prison ministry and two newspaper carrier routes.  He is amazing and his battery never runs down.

I have been painting on my studio days 2-3 weekdays on average.  Here is my latest--another illustration for a children's book, Dragonfly Summer.  Susanna is a character in the story whose peculiar interest in the dragonfly is an important element in the story line.

The day is getting closer and I am getting more hyper, because this is the biggest professional thing that has ever happened in my art career.  I hope I can "come down" from it afterwards and get back to work in my studio---it will be a show that runs for a month but I need to also devote my time to painting and exploring.  When I look through my cottage door at my many blessings from God, this show shines like a diamond in His light, and I am so grateful.  The are just snapshots inside Carrington Arts Gallery while Marsha Gray Carrington and I are working on the displays.  Much yet to do!
