The reception for my first one woman show was a success. My friends helped me out by supplying the food and there was wine too. The set up of my work at the gallery was just wonderful. Thank you Hampton House Art & Framing for a beautiful display.
It was so wonderful to see my work set up like this. Very moving and exciting. A different feel than if I did a doll show where I would have to sit for a day or two to sell my work. I feel as if my work have been elevated to the next level. It was a great feeling. I can't wait for the next exhibit.
I never would have thought to put the Goth Girls in a row like this and one shock of color with a Wandi Witch. They look like a chorus line.
I love the idea of my Voodoo Doll Pins and Witch Pins hanging by their necks. A bit creepy but fitting, don't you think? I was wondering how they were going to display the bunch.
Me and my art rep Lee Mecum. We're both wearing doll pins.
Me and Nathan Ross Freeman. He's the director of the independent film I made all those dolls for. He really liked my dolls and how I named them and said he was honored that I had done the dolls for his film.
Meredith and her fiance Josh. I haven't seen them in almost a year. They made the reception exceptional. I cried when I saw them. Meredith is one of my biggest cheerleaders.
Benita Van Winkle is a wonderful artist and photographer. I was surprised and happy that she took time out of her busy schedule to come to my show.
Evelyn Crews is another creative kindred spirit. Now that my show is up, we're going to do some beading workshops.
Steven Dunn is a fantastic painter and was the second friend I made when I moved here. He used to work at Hampton House and encouraged me to do my art. He asked me to bring in my dolls five years ago and he put them in the gallery that day. Now I've my own show there. I'm tearing up as I type this. He said he was very proud of me and my creations. He mentioned that even now, when he has his own shows, he still gets a chill seeing a body of his work in a gallery setting. We stood and looked at my show. He said he got a chill and that he was very excited for me. Many more friends showed up and we talked and laughed. This is only the beginning for me. I hope you enjoyed the pics of my show. Hold onto your hats, the ride continues.
