Thank you so much!
A special thank you to my Big Sister Sally for the generous and delicious provisions she brought - and served and maintained etc - all the way from Ann Arbor's famous Zingermanns - oh my, Sally: you've outdone yourself.
Thanks of course to Pat of Fieldstone Winery whose wines made all my paintings look so much better. And to Christine who made it possible.
I do apologize to every one of you: the turnout was so nice that I wasn't able to spend as much time with each of you as I would have liked. There were countless times when I rudely interrupted a well-begun conversation with you, to greet the next newcomer - so many unfinished conversations: we will need to manage to continue some of them, and soon.
My artwork is still on display at Fieldstone Winery in Rochester, and will be through the end of November. I hope that if you were unable to join us last night, you will still manage to stop by during the month and take a look at what I've been painting in the past year. While you are there, try a glass of Pat's Tempranillo: it's a lovely red with the peppery character that I always enjoy in a wine. I'm trying to resist opening the bottle I brought home tonight: need to save it for a special occasion. Although maybe having the reception behind me could be considered that . . . .
And finally, a glimpse of the end of the evening: that's my dear husband Michael and sister Sally, recuperating a bit after cleaning up. And a better view of the wall where the paintings were hanging.
