I just got home from my solo art show in Fredericksburg, TX, and discovered that my painting, Arboretum Dancers, has been featured on the official Garden Gallery Art Show invite! What a thrill!! The Garden Gallery juried show will be in the DeGolyer House on the Dallas Arboretum grounds March 13-28. Stop by Artscape and take a peek March 20-21. I'll be the artist in Booth 11 hoping for sunshine!

Here's my space for my first solo show at The Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas, held on Friday, March 5. Check out the amazing hand lettering on the wall - too cool, yes? The theme for my show was Gardens of Fredericksburg because I am an obsessive compulsive painter of Fredericksburg flowers. I even snuck out during the show to get photos of the pansies by the front door. I couldn't help myself.

What on earth did peeps do before they invented ladders, do you ever wonder that?

AnnieBee, head studio assistant and activity director, was there to lend a paw and advice on when it was appropriate to stop for breaks, go for walks, and feed the pug crunchy treats.

The show in Fredericksburg at The Good Art Company Gallery last Friday was exactly what I was hoping for - an evening of fun and laughter and hanging out with artists and collectors. We had a good crowd and I sold two paintings!

The gallery is located at 112 West Main Street in historic Fredericksburg, Texas. Be sure to stop in and see my display throughout the month of March. Say hi to Jill if you do, she loves visitors!

The gallery owner, Jill, did a beautiful job of arranging the sign in table and even placed a bouquet of my fav flowers - sunflowers. She asked me if I'd be painting that setting soon. I think she knows me pretty well, don't you?

I was tickled pink to see my Facebook pal Paula Gold walk through the door. Paula and her sister in law Debra (who claimed she has no talent but I don't believe it) drove an hour to get to my show. Paula and I are plotting our surprise visit to famous artist Elizabeth Robbins. Shhh. Don't tell, it will be a surprise. I just hope Liz keeps a stocked fridge and has plenty of chocolate and cheese on hand....

None of this would have been possible without my handsome hubby Carlos and the Executive Studio Director, AnnieBee. Annie arrived at the art show fashionably late and proceeded to become the center of attention at the gala event. She handled her peeps and the pupparazzi like a pro, gently accepting hors' deuvres and graciously allowing her adoring fans to give her pats. In her pink Puppia harness, she was certainly all decked out in her finest party frock.

Thank you for joining me for the tour of our show. Annie, Carlos and I will be back again next year and I sure hope you will be there. The cheese and cookies were scrumptious, and the art wasn't too bad, either!
