Exciting,Fabulous, Wonderful Day!!!


What a Day!!! Yesterday was such an exciting day! I attended a luncheon at the gallery where I sell my artwork, La Montage, for the Society of Interior Design-Dallas Chapter. Jill and I got to present our line of original artwork for children's rooms! There were two of the other artist there, we also got to meet and that all in itself was a treat. Melissa McKean and Julie Pharr were there to present there artwork too. The group of Interior Designers were such a sweet group of ladies and seemed so encouraging of one another. I loved seeing that. Gaylynn, the gallery owner, had the gallery all decorated for the Holidays and served a lovely lunch of bowtie pasta with sun dried tomatoes in a cream sauce, caesar salad and baguettes. Each place setting had a beautiful handmade ornament from Melissa of ELLE Designs. I wish I had snapped a picture of the tables, they were beautiful! A beautiful gallery filled to the brim with inspiring artwork, lovely ladies, a beautiful hostess, a chance to discuss the benefits of custom artwork....what a fabulous time! And after the event, all the artist gathered at a table and enjoyed lunch together. Wonderful conversation about our work, what inspires us, future projects....and we got to know each other a little more. Kelly, Gaylynn's new assistant joined us and she was so much fun! It was nice to see how great she fit into the mix as she will be representing out work to clients and stores in the future.
It was a day that made me realize how truly blessed I am to be doing something I absolutely love. To be passionate about your work is the most rewarding thing. To wake up each day and look forward to creating.....is like living in a dream!!! Really, if I could make art, teach art, sell art all day everyday... makes me one very happy girl!!!

I'm so happy for you Sandra...I know you like the artist hat better than the decorator hat. I'd be happy wearing either one so you're one talented, fortunate lady. ;)

You did a wonderful job on the children's boutique & you GOTTA share a picture of your big dog in the tutu!
