Sitting at the Art Gallery this afternoon

I spent a lovely sunny afternoon sitting for our watercolour group show at the Denman Island Summer Art Gallery.

Lots of folks came in, and three paintings sold.

I did a wee watercolour in my notebook during the afternoon.


I got to meet the lovely young woman, Flora, who won the Houses quilt that I made for the affordable housing initiative, last summer.

And on another note, yesterday I sold my Chorus Frog embroidery.
