Great opening

I had not realised how much time had elapsed since my last blog The preparation for the exhibition was fun (I think), when we were together it was much easier than working alone.
"The very Stuff" had a great opening exhibition 250 there and it was so happy.....and successful we all sold well which was an unexpected bonus.
The sense of wonder and encouragement from our friends made us think we may do it again down the track
Here are some pics.

A popular pose me with the first glass for the night.

Two of those behind me were sold.

This is part of the gallery before everyone arrived. Megan, the curator at the gallery did a wonderful job in marrying the disparate styles.

Yesterday we did a floor talk and demonstration for an Elderly Citizen group and tomorrow for the general public...a three hour job!

I so love the idea of sharing the enthusiasm we have with others and maybe beginning something for them. One lady went away and cried after I showed her how to make a little book, she so wants to make things but lacks the courage, though one of her friends told me she had made her bag and she was delighted with that. I have offerred to go to their place and "play" with them. I only discovered belatedly that her friend was the sister of a well known Australian painter!!! but that may well explain the retiscence.

Anyway it was all fabulous!
