Show Weekend

Here are some pictures from the Associated Artists Show at Victoria Gardens last weekend. Thank you to Associated Artists for the oversized display area. Perfect!
My painting, Sunflowers and Eucalyptus won First Place in Oils. That was REALLY exciting!
I painted like a crazy woman and enjoyed talking with so many very interested on-lookers. One sweet lady, Mimi, came back on Saturday morning and stayed through to the completion of the painting; about 6 hours! Here are some progress shots.
And last, but not least, here are some of my biggest little fans. Four of my six grandchildren are pictured. Little Elijah is only 21 months. Doesn't he look happy?
I'll post the finished paintings for sale at a later date. What a great weekend it was! Thank you, Associated Artists for all your hard work. Thank you to my daughter, Shelly and friend Linda for the photos.


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Toutes mes félicitations pour l'attribution de ce premier prix... bien mérité !
    Une très jolie peinture que vos tournesols...
    Vous nous régalez avec l'ensemble de vos magnifiques photos.
    L'atmosphère de cette exposition devait être très agréable. Beaucoup d'admirateurs !
    La présence de vos petits-enfants a dû être également un doux moment. Un bel air de famille... dans le regard de chacun.

    Gros bisous ♡
