Art Night Photos

Thanks to all that stopped out on Thursday to Art Night in Denmark. The weather was beautiful for sipping wine outdoors and gathering with new and old friends.  All my students had matted drawings to show how hard we had been working and they brought their families and friends to see. It was a wonderful time meeting everyone in the community and getting my face out from behing the dust of the Mill!

portrait dedication

Tonight’s dedication my portrait “The Storyteller” to the Seymour Library was fabulous.  The people were all amazed at the likenesses of Jane and her grandchildren…I was amazed by the outpouring of love and support for this man and his incredible wife.  Once again, GOODNESS is all around us.
