Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

I want to thank all those who helped me launch my very first Art Show.

 Firstly, I want to thank the Divine for supporting my body and enabling me to enjoy and participate in the Rolling Hills Studio Tour.

 About 50 – 60 people came through our doors. Seeing my pictures framed on my walls gives me great pleasure.

 Special thanks goes to Lucya Almeida for suggesting that I exhibit and believing in me. She and Sandra McGregor helped me select the best paintings. Thanks to Julia Harris for giving me my first lessons in watercolour and in accompanying me to the framers. We chose simple white matts and light wood frames.

 My darling sister arrived from London, England on May 1st.   She helped me sort and label the many cards, bookmarks, tags and envelopes.

 I also want to thank my caregivers Anita, Colleen and Cathy who each helped in their own way.

 I want to thank Brent, Lucy and Stella for putting up with my mess. Thanks to Tara McDunnough for introducing me to Gelli printing and Bonny Anthony for teaching me to make the little gift boxes.

Finally to all of you who came, I thank you.

 The show was more successful than I could have hoped for. A board member from the Lindsay Art Gallery invited me to who my work there.

I still have lots of cards and paintings and will keep the paintings up for another couple of weeks, so it’s not too late to come and view them.

Love, Moira

P.s. Here is a picture of my sister and I, sitting in the ‘exhibition room’.  And two new paintings.
