……and it was marvelous!
One of the most thrilling aspects for me was when
Amanda, the director of the Quinlan Visual Arts Center,
approached me and said "You've just sold your first piece!
Do you want to put the red dot on the sign?"
Our dear friends Kathie and Roger Futrell purchased my piece,
I was totally overwhelmed by the turn-out
of family and friends,
on a cold week night!
It was very heartwarming for me,
and I shall never forget it!
Below are artists Rosemary Dodd
and Becky Evans,
checking out my work.
Even my Oncologist, Dr. Andre Kallab
was there to support me!
That's bald me, Dr. K, and my good friend Kathy McCurdy:
Two in my "Holey" series sold during the opening reception.
The one on the left went to my good friend Sherrie Schrage,
while the one in the center was purchased by
my neighbor and friend Graham McKinnon.
He is having it framed and it will hang in
his law office.
More 'people pics':

Deborah and Tread Syfan
my friend Jack Kirves,
who is an incredible photographer
(my piece 'Second Stage' which went to
the Sacred Threads show in Herndon, VA
is to Jack's right)
This is my favorite piece,
which you've all seen before,
The gals at the Quinlan did a fabulous job
hanging the show.
I was really honored that "Panic Attack"
hangs in the main lobby as you enter the Quinlan.
…..and of course, I couldn't complete this post
without a family pic or two!
Maggie and her Daddy
checking out the artwork of the very talented
Maggie and her Mommy
with my "Datura"
in the background.
Unfortunately I have no pictures
of dear Charlie,
but of course he was there too!
He wanted to know in which pieces
I used his paint brushes!
I thought I had uploaded all of my photos
to my Flickr site,
but now I cannot find them….
chock it up to more chemo brain!
I will get busy with that soon,
so you can see more!
If you are on FaceBook,
you can find me at Judy Hill Carpenter.
I have lots more pics of the show there.
Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks for your continued support!
Peace to you and yours!
