Fun Show!

 Last night was the opening reception of Small Things. The first group show put on by Berlin's Arts and Entertainment Committee. It was great! There was a huge crowd of all ages....pretty much all night. A really great array of paintings and photos, mixed media and a sculpture. 
My photos aren't that great. I wish I had taken more. Such a fun way to spend a Friday night in January.
Lots of people....
Austin suffered for his art...
Brian and Mark hanging stuff.

September at Baked

Yum! My favorite place here in our little town. The perfect place to go to get an afternoon snack and coffee. Or a baguette and wine to go with dinner. BAKED! I'm super happy and honored to have my art hanging there for the month of September. There are our brand new chalkware designs! Paintings. Everything happy and sweet...just like Baked.

Seriously go get something they have made! It's all SO good and all natural.
