Here is my favorite photo of the whole Retrospective. It is what I wanted to happen!

Monday, May 28, 2007

Just a few more pictures to finish up the party and to get on with life. May is almost over and the party ended on April 28th! The party is really over and I am sad. I sent 22 packages out of paintings to get back to their owners. One, Pasadena Man owned by Lauren and Ken Hunt is lost. I am still hoping it will turn up. The show lasted just three weeks and all in all it was wonderful but not long enough. I know it can not happen again in the same way and I have to be happy with what did happen and not be concerned for what didn't happen. It was terrific and I want to thank everyone who lent me their paintings and who were so gracious throughout. We sold quite a lot of work, 2 paintings and several woodcuts. I hope you all enjoy them and come back for more! I have four commisions requested. One, I have started on and I'll let you know when the others come about. I'll post them for you to see.
Thank you again for a wonderful birthday.

Dancing Now - snaking through the courtyard.

We missed Jack!

Let's Eat!

The food was so good and we worked it so that people did not have to line up to fill plates. Lot's of passed food - Crab Cakes, Chicken Sate, Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Mini Steak Sandwitches, a chinese take out container with Chinese Chicken Salad, Leek Tarts and Ravioli stuffes with wild mushrooms.

The party went on for a while and there were people there from my community, my family and my old time nursery school friends. Many of the guests were in the paintings and I had a game to guess how many were there. Somehow the game was not much distributed or people chose not to play. I counted that there were 36 live people at the party. Lot's more were deceased but there in spirit. The total guesed were 51. The winner was Diana Deutsch with runner ups of April Stevens and Naomi Adelson. They will each receive a framed woodcut for their effort.

And Now The Party
The party, on April 14th was a great success. It was at the j Ferrari Gallery, the weather was perfect, cool but comfortable with the heaters that we rented on. People wandered between the gallery indoors where the paintings were and the outdoors where most of the people were. Jeremy Rothe-Kushel played DJ and the music was fine. The food was prepared and served by our terrific caterers owners of the future Reservoir ( past Nina's). Jeremy's friend Gabe Eng took photos of the party which I will share
