Vernissage was a big success

Hi Everyone, TGIF! Well another busy week has gone by. We had a beautiful sunny day for the Vernissage weekend at Gallery de la Rive and over 150 visitors came by the gallery. It was a big success and a beautiful afternoon of art, music, sweets and wine & Cheese.
I sold lots of my colourful cards and I sold my "Autumn Glow" painting so that was great. I actually sold it a few days before the big day. I am now working on a few new ones for the next Exhibit which will begin end of February 2010. Wishing you all a great weekend.

Some pics from the Vernissage Weekend:

New Painting Idea

Hi Everyone, Busy weekend I am having. Yesterday was the Demo day at the Gallery and lots of people were there. Today is the big Vernissage from 1 - 4pm with lots of wine and cheese. We are expecting a big gathering and I am really looking foward to it! The gallery looks really beautiful too with all the lovely christmas decorations and big Christmas tree. I will take some pictures today and post later.

I also completed a little rough sketch for my next painting. This one will be about beautiful Venice.

Here is my rough sketch idea
I have done my drawing on a 60 x 80 cm canvas.
I can't wait to start painting.

Hi Everyone, An oustanding artist friend of mine, Kim Barker recently purchased one of my colourful travel calendars at Red Bubble.com and just posted a pic on her webpage. I think the calendar looks really great and excellent quality, so I thought I would share a pic of it with you. You can see more of my calendars at http://www.redbubble.com/people/lisalorenz
