Big Hat Gallery Show

























So, the Big Hat Books and Arts Gallery Show Opening has come and gone. It was an amazing night full of surprises! I was surrounded by friends and family and some amazing artists. The gallery looked amazing and it was a beautiful night. I am really pleased with my sales too. Some of my pieces have been shown before and for others it was their first show. Most of them won't be coming home and I am very thankful for that. Now I must get ready for the Dia de Los Muertos Show which opens in just a few weeks! Ai! Here a some photos of my pieces in the show and from the opening night.

Thank you Carole Anne! How fantastic it would be to have you come and do a reading of one of your works here! I also love your photographs-I really think you need to frame some of those and there you go-you have a one of a kind show.

Stella,
Thanks so much! I wish you, Ivy and Ted had been here! I will send you an email with some close up photos of the framed pieces and I would always love to visit with you-that would be a dream come true! Hope all is well with you!
love,

Thanks so much Lynn!
Hehe! I so love this photo of you! Big Hat is a great place to shop which is kind of a problem-art upstairs, books downstairs and such a gorgeous environment. I just keep saying that I want to live there-what else can you do? Hope all is well with you.

You are so kind, Merle. I'd love to do a reading over there and, with a little magic, one day I'm hoping that will happen. Thank you too for your good vibes on my photos! I'm hoping to create a collection to go with my novel. They are certainly fun to do. Sweet moments, dear one. xx

Hi Merle,
The Big Hat Gallery looks a lovely venue to have an exhibition. A beautiful light space and your work looks wonderful there.:)
I really love your dolls with the little lights.
I hope your second exhibition went well too!
Best wishes, Jo.xx

Carole Anne,
Your photos really are magical-I think having them with a book of your's would be fantastic! And yes, I would be amazing to have you here!

Thanks so much Jo! It is an amazing space. Thanks also about my birdcage skirt light up dolls. I had done some in the Spring that where the birdcages were white so the dolls where in pastel colours and they had huge "Marie Antoinette" hair and outfits. These dolls are my "Fall, Poe and Gothic" version. I plan on doing more! Hope all is well with you!
