giant news - at least for me it's very big!
Through my friend Kelly's (Kelly Berkey Designs) encouragement, some of my originals will now travel to the Gallery Off Broadway in Excelsior Springs, MO. Click here for their website or find them here on Facebook. The first time I heard about them through Kelly's blog, I liked their look, their feel, how they operated, and the fact that they support and encourage new artists. And now my art gets to be a part of that!
My art. In a gallery. Pinch me, please!!
It was just about two years ago, when I painted my very first painting - my blog banner. If you had told me then that my art would be in a gallery, I would have laughed myself silly. Just goes to show that you never know where life will lead when you start following your heart!
By the way, the gallery is still looking for more artists (they just opened a few months ago), but they are filling up fast. So, if you like their look and think your art would fit in, make sure to contact them soon!! Don't be shy!! Kathleen, the gallery owner, is wonderful!
I am off to school to work on my class assignment some more (it sure is slow going...)! I hope you'll have a most fun and creative Saturday!!
P.S. I was just thinking about the past two years and I am sure that I would not have gotten this far in my art had I begun to paint without starting my blog at the same time. Your comments and enthusiasm and encouragement have made all the difference. So, a big THANK YOU to you!!
