On Sunday evening, Dec. 6th, from 6-9 pm, Bluebonnet Funeral Home and Cemetery hosted an Art Show for me (their idea). My liaison was Dee McIntosh, the person I went to for a final resting place. And, he has been terrific to work with on both accounts, reception and show and final resting place. But, let me give you a forerunner of the event. Friday night about 10:30 pm I started vomiting my innards out and continued until 6 am., Saturday morning. Was supposed to load my car and take in several loads of my 68 paintings (and my frames are all really good, heavy frames). Stayed in bed until mid afternoon and then made my first trek with paintings. Came home and went back to bed. Sunday finished the loading and set up. Telling you this to say I was not sure I would function at any capacity at the Reception.
I could not have done the show without some wonderful family and friends:
Hix and Amy made a banner for me. Dee McIntosh had it installed. Hix Hardy was my cashier and record keeper of all paintings sold, and exactly 25 paintings sold. That was a great night. His side kick was Sandra Eddy, long time friend of mine, that manned the guest book and had people sign up for the drawing. Carol Rasco and Shirley Eblen, from the Singles group at First Methodist downtown, were my name taggers, and they were hard workers. The location was great, the music lively, and the reception superb. Best idea of the evening came from Dee on how to get paintings out of there in one fell swoop. Can you guess what vehicle was used? And then my other Son, Hunter and his wife, Liz, showed up and helped tear down, so Dee and his lovely wife, Hix, Hunter, Liz, and I got it done in record time.
25 PAINTINGS ! ! WHAT A NIGHT.
