Opening night at the art show has come and gone. The month is winding down - just one more week in the gallery. I knew a year ago, that this would be a game changer for me. You see, my whole life, I've imagined walking into a gallery and seeing my work on the walls. My.Whole.Life. For lack of a better phrase - it is a total surreal feeling to have it happen. I am very proud to have accomplished such a high reaching dream. More then that though, I feel such gratitude. Gratitude for Kathy, at the Art Center, for believing in me and giving me the little shove I needed. Gratitude for my family, especially Eric, for supporting me. Gratitude for old and new friends for cheering me on and believing in my vision. I feel humbled that so many people came out for the party and that many of my pieces will be finding new homes next week. Paris Rooftops, in particular, is going to be difficult to part with - but I know after meeting the new owners that she will be well loved. I am going to sit back for a moment and enjoy where I am at right now - well, that is until the thought of "what comes next" pops into my head. Any moment now.
