Pictures from Last Night's Show

The crowd is just getting started. There were so many people!

This blue piece, "Cobalt", is the painting the bank used for their promotional material and they ended up purchasing it for their corporate collection. I was so pleased.

Last night's art show was everything I hoped it would be: I met talented and successful artists, got seasoned business advice from those who have been doing this for years, I was able to get my art in front of collectors, and 6 out of 8 pieces sold. I also got commissions for 4 more pieces. My heart is full of so much gratitude towards Zions Bank's Art Committee for putting together such an advantageous evening for the artists and for choosing my painting, "Cobalt", to be featured on the promotional material (which the bank purchased for their corporate collection of art). The two artists next to me, Stephanie Deer and Eric Dowdle and his wife were there throughout the evening offering support and friendly conversation. I wish them much success!

To all of my collectors and supporters, a big thank you for making my first big show a real success!

Super cool, Cristall -- I need to get working too, so maybe I can get into some of these shows you're a part of. Will you give me a holler when there's an opportunity down your way I could get in on?
