Last week was a fine week for this artist. The Birmingham Community House held its annual fundraiser, "Our Town" (no, not the play, as my sister assumed). Perhaps 100 artists and twice that many works of art are represented, and well heeled Birminghamers come to the opening night for wine, wonderful refreshments, and art. Artists whose work is accepted into the show are invited, at no cost, and it makes for a great party, especially as generally one knows quite a few other artists with whom to meet and greet. I saw friends and fellow SOBs Diane O'Neil and Barbara Markham, and quite a few others.
Best of all BOTH paintings that I entered in the show sold. One, Momentary Revelation, is shown at the left. The other, Fleur de Tulip, is shown here.
Needless to say, I was a happy camper, even though both of these paintings were favorites, with important locations in my home. Now I have to get busy and paint more with this kind of impact!
