Arts Evening went well last night. Although I didn't sell anything, I got a lot of exposure, met a lot of nice, interesting people & Charles & I both had a good time. My sincere thanks go to the City of Slidell for putting on this annual event, to Hilda & Tony of Postal Plus/Bargains Plus who hosted my work & provided us all with food & drink & to Charles for sacrificing his evening to provide me with moral support. Unfortunately, in my focus not to forget anything art-related that I needed (i.e.; price stickers, float, business cards, etc.,) I forgot to bring my camera.
This afternoon I'll be attending the Friends of the Park volunteer appreciation party. It'll be nice to get together with everyone who made this wonderful dream a reality & to finally see the completed park in it's entirety. I painted a fence panel for the park this past Summer & was glad for the opportunity to contribute to the project.
This past Friday the St. Tammany News published another one of my photos on the front page. The exposure & appreciation is great.
I spotted the 1st Winter visitor at our feeders this morning; a white throated sparrow. Soon we'll be inundated with goldfinches, chipping sparrows, etc., etc. I can hardly wait!
The photo above (of reflections in the water,) was taken at dawn at Big Branch Marsh NWR a couple of weeks ago.
