On October 10 "my" show will open at the Carmel Gallery - 22 Rangeline Road, Carmel, IN - from 5-9 p.m. - "Realism and Still Life".

I'm very excited about this invitational show.  The salon director invited all artists who had won an award at the 2014 Hoosier Salon Annual Show to be in a show during 2015.  I will be with Anna Roberts, TWSA, Robert Bratton and Patricia Weiss.

In order to decide what to take, I sat all of the eligible paintings around the living room and tagged them, then hauled them to my storage closet until it was time to load them into the car.

Below are a couple photos of my selection process.  Also got a "piece" of the dog in one - he was a great help, except when he got excited, jumped up, knocked over one painting, then jumped onto the ottoman - at least he didn't jump onto the back of the painting - he weights 101 pounds!!!

Being an artist entails a lot of things - including heavy hauling!  Thank goodness for HUSBANDS!!!  We loaded 16 into the car and drove them to Carmel on October 3 - in the rain, of course!  I'll look forward to seeing them hanging at the show.  I got to meet Anna as she and her  husband (also named Mike!) were hauling her paintings in - and we were able to help them carry in some of her paintings too.

If you are in the area, hope you get a chance to see the show while it hangs
