I finally got my facebook page running. Trouble is, I wonder if anyone can find it. I find it difficult except through my web page! Now I really have to get down to business.

First of all I sold another painting, my 3 Pears. Next, South Hollow Gallery asked to put not one but three pieces of my art in their Gallery. How great is that? Next I entered an on-line show to have 2 of my paintings on line on Island Blue's on line gallery where I buy supplies when I visit Victoria. They are showing my two paintings entered. Then I was featured (not just myself) in the Newsletter that goes with this site, Artsites, I am still working on my Facebook page. Not a lot of success there but I will keep trying.

Thanks to Bob at the Pearl Ellis Gallery. He had taken pictures of all paintings at the Pearl Ellis Members Show. I entered that show and my one painting was sold. I hadn't taken a picture of it. Lesson for all of us painters here.

He sent it to me last night so you will see it under flowers.

Sending pictures of your art is not easy. I've had photos embedded, and too large. It is not as if I can just ask anyone. I must study this in various places found on the internet. Some of it is incorrect and I can waste an hour trying to do something only to find it just doesn't work. I want to tear out my hair. So I keep on looking and when one finds something that works Wow! What a feeling. That was this morning.

Yesterday was great. I ran downtown to buy something at the Comox Valley Art Gallery shop. Someone there had checked out my web site and asked to buy a another child leaving home. Was I pleased or what?! Yes it is exciting. Must get busy and paint......

Well, this is funny. I thought I could only write a sentence. I wondered why it was such a little bit . Helps to keep reading about this. I will be posting more photos tonight. Busy doing income tax stuff.
