|Party getting started.|
With art openings/happenings, you never know what's going to transpire. Have one mid-July, when half the population might be hanging out and the beach -- and heck, it could have just been my Mom, Dad, Randy and me twiddling our thumbs amid some really great snacks for three hours.

Two paintings were claimed by new owners -- "Ballerinas II" and "Notre Dame." (Six out of the 26 have been purchased.) Visitors were setting up chairs or sitting down where they could view their favorite paintings, at length -- and enjoying having it in front of them. Seriously. They told me so.
Refreshments were great. Perfect, maybe. My French macarons were a hit -- like another adventure among those hanging on the wall. That was a good thing -- as husband Randy has been --

Thank you so much for those who attended. I have some new cherished memories. Conversations to rewind and replay.
