23rd Annual Among Friends Art Show and Sale

Today was the opening of our show and we were greeted with a warm and sunny day with temperatures climbing up to 80F (27C); much better than the rain and thunderstorms the weatherman was forecasting.

It was nice to have the crowds come out to visit our show although with this being the first nice day without rain there were lower numbers than on previous years.

One of the photographers from Lakefield Herald came in to cover our show and took photographs of the art exhibited and some of the members of the Group.

Today I worked on a number of smaller paintings including Melting (see posting on 09 August 2010).

I will probably work on this painting again on Monday and will post it then when it is completed.

So far three original paintings have sold from Irene Smith, Helen Sheppard and JoAnne Connell Northey, as well as a number of smaller items from Bonny Windover and Diane Collins.

The hours for our show are:
21 May 11 - 9:00am - 5:00pm
22 May 11 - 12:00pm - 5:00pm
23 May 11 - 10:00am - 5:00pm
