I went to my first gallery opening exhibit at Sunbury Shores Gallery in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick. I have one of my paintings there until the middle of December. So exciting, I had never imagined at the start of this year that I would have a piece hanging in a gallery.
It was a great experience to be there. I met many other artists whose work was hanging up and many art admirers.
It was fun to watch and talk to people explore the art in the room, but I found it difficult to talk about my own. I am sure I turned bright red every time someone congratulated me. You would think it would be easy to talk about your own work, I spent hours on it, I should know all about it. But it is hard to describe. There is a story behind it and a feeling that is hard to explain.. A picture is worth a 1000 words, and words are not my strength. I made out alright though, and really enjoyed myself, I wasn't half as nervous as I thought I would be.
Thanks to you for reading my posts and your support that encourages me to share these pieces of myself.
