"Festa Italiano" SOLD

Festa Italiano
6 x 6in oil on museum quality panel
How decadent can you be??  Hanging out in Italy, enjoying the home-made pastas and local wines–and doing it while sitting at the water’s edge….now that’s what I call a holiday! 
Be sure and make a toast to return here, same time next year…but maybe stay a whole month…or what the heck…just go ahead and buy the villa…it’s only money people…:))). 
And in other news….
“Paintings in Window at Bromwell’s Gallery for Opening Night”
I had a beautiful time at the opening at Bromwell’s Gallery this past Saturday night.  Not that you would know by the photos I have included here.  True to form, I took photos before it started, promptly got caught up in the evening…..and well…you will just have to trust me–it was great!   
“Local Cat, Cinders, Attends Opening…well, actually, he let us have an opening at his gallery.  Please do not let Eddie know about this–Cinders was in the window posing in front of Eddie’s painting….”
As you can see, I am absolutely no good with the camera when it comes to events.  Give me a cat and a camera and you would think no one else was there.  There was a great turn out–  Cincinnati is an amazing town.  I met talented, engaging people, listened to some fine music from David Dutton, mingled with the local cats (Wewis was also in attendance–yes, you read it right, Wewis) and then headed upstairs to  gallery owners Jeff and Tracy’s home for cappuccino’s and dessert (it was Jeff’s birthday!).  Altogether a very wonderful evening!
Getting excited about this week’s blog talk radio show, “Artists Helping Artists”, that I am co-hosting with California artist, Leslie Saeta (see side bar on my blog site for details).  This week’s topic is  “How to Host an Art Workshop”–call in to listen or contribute your two cents worth..:)) 
Which reminds me—my next 3 Day Oil Painting Workshop is  coming up June 10-12 in Lexington, KY.   The workshop is full and a mix of new students from several states away and some veteran workshop gals from last year.  I am excited and I promise to do a better job photographing the event…:)))
Back to the easel…and let me know when you close the deal on your villa….I wanna come paint at your place…:)))

    Thanks girls..:)) Leslie–I am a bit off on my posting plan because of the holidays…:)) Clydetta–daydreaming is good..:)) And I am not sure what Eddie thinks–he’s a hard cat to figure out..but I have a feeling he would not be happy with Cinders stealing the spotlight in the window deal…ReplyCancel
