After what seemed like endless days of hot, bright weather
a shift took place
 after the full moon -
 a muting and softening of colours

 in nature's gallery.
I sat at Gage Gallery two days and enjoyed the steady stream of friends and visitors.

Now I am back to work in the studio and my palette has followed the weather...

 With a snip of a ribbon, Gage Gallery officially opened our doors to the public on friday night
 and what a vibrant feast for the senses the celebration was!
 People began arriving before our opening time
 and the gallery was soon packed
 and spilling out onto the sidewalk.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
 Almost all the pieces in the back room's silent auction sold, including my two felted pieces, and that is great news for our collective, as members donated their art to raise funds for the gallery.
Here is my piece that is part of the current group show, which runs for three weeks.  It's called 'Loving the Questions'.  I also have some felted sculptures on display.
