ART ALLIANCE IS A GO


Our new art alliance consists of
me
daughter
friend
art teacher friend
art fans

we had our follow up meeting after the walk to discuss our success
and future plans
(sorry about the wrong bank bag in the photo honey)

on this very chilly day it  included of course
blazing fire*hearty soup*the perfect wine* and 
great artistic conversation

Pumpkin Soup
ON
Apple Dumplings
(perfect time of year for this yummy treat)

you can read about it here

Our first annual art walk proved to be a huge success
remember...we live in a little town...so for us it was 
HUGE
We had over 100 people
raised over $2200
every single artist except one sold work
we charged no commission
and the SHS art students raised nearly $700 (additional) by selling their own work

nothing like celebrating a good thing

and I have even MORE reason to celebrate!
can I just say
I am nearly thrilled!

How wonderful that your walk was a big success. Congrats. The quality of the work was outstanding--no doubt the reason so many sold. Yummy looking soup and dumplings!

I guess you have enjoyed a lot the day. What's that of the last photo? Your new household appliances?

Congratulations!!! On the success of the art walk, on the alliance AND the washer/dryer. Don't know which one I'd be more excited about.

Happy Weekend, my friend. Stay warm - it's pouring rain and cold here in the north.
