INTERVALS - 36 x 60
So there I was... riding along some beautiful avenue in the Turtle Creek area of Dallas, on the way to the first gallery on our "to see" list and my phone rings. I'm surprised to note that it's from my newest rep in Asheville and the good news is that a prominent collector in the area (did I get his name? noooo....) has added to his collection with the largest canvas I'd recently left with them. The above painting now hangs between (didn't get that name either) and an Ansel Adams photograph. You bet I'm thrilled! Off to a good start in a new gallery. I've asked for a repeat of the info I didn't catch... I don't do well on cell phones.
So that's how my holiday in Texas began... it was fine from day one!
There were six of us but due to logistics, two cars were needed as we made our way this way and that. Our hostess's daughter generously loaned us both her condo in town and her lake house on Lake Corsicana a little over an hour south of town. We were well taken care of... pampered, even! It was an exceptional retreat and we enjoyed!
I won't go into a list of all that we saw... both museums and galleries in both Ft. Worth and Dallas... we kept moving every day except for the one day we stayed at the lake, kicked back and rested up for more. Exhausted, we skipped the openings Saturday night as we'd seen most of the work, even visited with the artists as installations were underway or winding up... kind of more fun that way anyway. I must say, the directors of most of the galleries we visited were extremely generous with their time and information, even when they knew we were artists (usually a turn off) and not likely to be clients.
We made good use of the porches!
The changing views were incredible!
Cynthia and Cheryl McClure... thank you so very much!
