Last weekend, I had a private art show at my studio! I was inspired by the old Parisian “Salons” that existed in Victorian times, that gathered together painters, musicians, writers, and businesspeople to all enjoy an evening of meeting new people and conversing about the arts culture. It was so much fun to invite people into my world to see where I create my paintings. I spent a lot of time getting ready for the event, cooking homemade stuffed shells, salads, and for dessert, miniature cupcakes and angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries, with bubbly punch and assorted wines. I set up the space to showcase my sketches and paintings, including one work-in-progress that is on my easel. Candlelight served as the perfect lighting accent to bring the work into focus with a soft glow. Several happy collectors went home with new works of art that evening, and everyone had a lovely relaxed evening. One of the highlights of the evening was the electric violin live performance by Brian Fitzy, who has played with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
Thank you to all the friends and collectors who came out to make the evening a smashing and lovely event to remember!
