My first art exhibition in 1983 was an accidental one.
One summer I came home to visit my parents and brought my Dad my very own painting of “our” lighthouse. My father had just retired as lighthouse keeper on Bell Island, Newfoundland and I thought this would be a fitting retirement gift.
I was mortified to discover he entered the painting in the local craft fair on the island. Sharing a painting with family is one thing but with the world is quite another. I was not ready for that.
imagine my surprise when I discovered it not only won first place but that my prize was a set of Crown Royal whiskey glasses.
Now……. 33 years later……
I am preparing for my first ever solo art exhibition.
Am I ready? not sure.
Am I nervous? you bet.
Stay tune for more info as the big day draws near!
There won’t be any whiskey glasses,
maybe some coffee cups and perhaps some wine glasses!!
