life is full of wonder ...

October seventh and eighth found me in my hometown
for the opening of my very first solo show!
Many of my pieces,
from original drawings, to paintings, 
'Rendered in Thread'

I was walking on sunshine, literally!

There is nothing like being recognized by
wonderful family & friends that you spent your
crazy youth with!

I love my hometown of Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania.
It's quaint and quirky, fits me perfectly.
It's full of people and places
I treasure.
There is that magic you live
as a teen and rediscover as an adult.

If you are in the area, the show will be open until 
November 4.
Call ahead to make sure 
Michelle is there.  She is certainly
one of the treasures you should not miss.
I'm so grateful we shared
in art classes together as teens
and have come full circle.
Thank you so much for this wonderful place to feature

I still get requests for the charted guide for this design.
