The Estes Park, PAINT THE PARKS '08 Show opened on Saturday afternoon, award winners were named and it was pretty much time to relax a bit. The two galleries hosting the event, Earthwood Collections (the gallery that represents me) and the Cultural Arts Council opened simultaneously, and during the course of the evening we walked between the galleries to get a look at all the amazing work entered into the show. Two of my pieces sold at the opening; that's a first and a pleasant surprise.
Thanks so much to Ron and Ann Wilcocks, their staff at Earthwood Collections, and to Lynda Vogel at the Cultural Arts Council who put on a GREAT plein air event.
And Thanks to Rick Frisbie who took this photo and the others with me in them.
