Art Show Reception

Planning, hanging, and showing my first solo painting show has been a terrific growth experience: a gift to myself, of sorts. I benefited from the advice of my more-experienced painting fellows, my teacher, and my family. Seven paintings in all, from the last year and a half, will hang on the bright yellow walls of Espresso Roma II in Berkeley, CA, for the month of March, 2010.

I hosted a reception on March 7, inviting many people from different parts of my life: family, neighborhood, friends, work, and painting. It gave me great pleasure to see them all, and to share this important part of my life with them. Here are the pictures!
