The paintings display beautifully at New Day Center for the Arts in Portland, Oregon. The show will come down during next week.
It was another one of those cheek-aching evenings ~ where I got to meet and visit with many new people. I know it is a good event when my cheek muscles ache from smiling within the first hour.
My buddy, Liz Ness of Liz Ness Studio ~ mixed-media artist/painter/tech-guru!
Each painting has a story ~ and we’ve included the stories with the paintings ~ visitors to this event remarked on how they loved to read the thoughts behind the pieces ~ the intentions.
Linda offered Xocai Chocolate samples, Kirsten shared her activity book for children, and Liz and Myself shared our artwork. It was a lovely evening with delicious treats, conversation, and music in the air.
Visitors enjoyed the songs and stories of Portland’s own singer/songwriter Mila Polevia
Our ample supply of varied hors d’oeuvres were well enjoyed ~ especially by the children who danced around and played throughout the evening.
I had the opportunity, during this event, to meet Currie, and present to her her completed commissioned painting, Over The Moon.
During our event, a special adjoining room allowed children to create their own art ~ thank you to Kirsten Klug and her family for making this possible.
It was an evening worth sharing ~ and I hope those who came and shared had a wonderful time. Thank you to Kerri Altom and Kayt Huggans for photography
Have a wonderful evening,
Love & Sincerely, Katie
