Saturday, March 9, 2013

What a great week! This week started with hanging my show at the Gryphon Cafe in Wayne,  being filmed for a Radnor TV feature, working on 3 commisions, a WCHE radio mention, featured on the front cover and inside the Chester County Daily Local Weekender insert(in full color!), won an award for painting, sold 3 paintings, worked on 3 commissions and had wonderful people all around me. I praise God for all He has blessed me with. May my work glorify His name. Also I finished this large painting, Your Gentleness Has Made Me Great", 24" x 48".

 Will the person who wanted detail photos of the painted bench please send me your email address so I can respond. Many thanks!~
