The Gallery Is Open

We set-up the gallery show today and it was fun hard work.
The cooperation and sharing of supplies and tools among club members was nice to see--mostly I shared with other people but Jim came through with some nice screws when mine proved to be a bad choice.
I remembered windex, and loaned my cordless drill and nicer light bulbs.

Many thanks to the family and friends who came to my first show.
I was touched, and almost shed a tear.
And huge hugs for Selma and Holly, who bought prints and didn't even haggle on the price.
I guess I'm officially "pro" now, having sold my art and vision for $$$.
When I'm famous I'll sign your prints, and mark them as the first two ever sold.

(They were "Waiting To Cross Over" and one of my South Padre Island shots from 2006.)

It's been hectic and there's a little more work to do, but at last I can relax and maybe get some better sleep.

That's awesome. Congratulations! I turn in my photo tomorrow for my first exhibition. I can't wait to see it hanging on the wall.

Thank You! It's a life-changing experience seeing your work on the walls of a real gallery for the first time, watching and listening as people enjoy (or diss) your art. Good Luck!
