I dropped off my framed photos to the gallery on Tuesday afternoon and handed them to Laurie to hang. I didn’t know how they would be displayed but when I arrived on Thursday before the opening started, the photos were brilliantly integrated into the wall of flower paintings. It was hard to recognize the photos from the paintings, which I thought was perfect.
At 6PM, people started coming and by 8:30 there were so many people in the gallery, they spilled over into the street. Many friends and acquaintances were there and I was so touched so many people came. Best of all some blog readers were there, which I was so thrilled and also some of my tour clients from that week showed up. In fact, three women who were my tour clients the day before were so sweet and brought a bottle of Champagne as a congratulations.
By 9PM the festivities were mostly over and I had dinner with Vincent and a few friends to celebrate my big night.
If you didn’t make it to the opening, the show runs till June 15.
