Gala Preview Opening Tonight

'Reserve Paintings Room'
40 artists x 4 paintings each on the wall.
But you can't imagine how many paintings are in this room,
waiting for a chance to come out of the box! 

Well, it was a busy morning! But I have four paintings on the wall and four in reserve in the backroom pictured above.

We were invited to a wonderful dinner last night in Sister Bay. Several artists were there, enjoying the company of the wonderful people of Door County who open their homes to host an artist or two, sometimes three or four, if they have the room.

Mary Ann put out quite a spread. I was happy to see "Austin from Houston". She's a great lady from Texas who has come up to visit her sister during the festival.

After four days of painting, Frank Gardner was saying that we really could use another two days of painting. Strangely enough, the rest of the artists agreed. We are just in the swing of it, and let me tell you, there is a stunning show on the wall at the Peninsula Art School, just waiting for the public to receive the full force of what 40 artists produced in this beautiful county. I think they will be pleased to see their county, once again, through artists eyes.
