It was a beautiful day by the water for an art opening! Thanks to all those who attended and to those who visited later and sent their best wishes. Thanks, too, to Bonny Zanardi for featuring the opening in the San Jose Mercury News/San Mateo County Times and writing such a nice article about me. The show is now over and by all measures it was very successful. I received a lot of positive feedback, sales, and motivation to continue to move forward with painting.
