Art Studio Party and Kathy Collins Talk

Boy, it's been a busy few weeks, and I've gotten out of touch with my blog. Vacations, house guests, parties, talks, and so on... But I have a minute for a quick post so you won't think I've gone away for good.

Sunday was our 49th Street Studio annual party. It was my first, and I had no idea what to expect. What happened was lots of food, art, and about 200 guests. What a blast! I got 10 of my paintings framed up and another five matted to show. It was the first time I've framed anything, and it was a bit of a learning experience. I'm happy with how things turned out, though. Here's a photo of my stuff:

For more about the party, see my post on the 49th Street Studio blog.

Today was Kathy Collins' talk, and it also was a great success. She generously shared her knowledge and experience about the business of art with 14 of us. There was so much information to digest and we all had lots of questions, too much to recap right now (dinner's on the stove).

Kathy is easy to admire, being such a wonderful artist and a fine human being to boot!

Thanks, Kathy!
