They are beautiful. They remind me of real old, worn pewter.

Thanks. I have posted most of the paintings for the show on my blog

http://www.theartofsharing-dale.blogspot.com if you would like to comment on any.
The show starts on Tuesday so I am excited.

It was hard pricing everything. I haven't tried to sell anything for a long time and never in a show like this.

I've seen your blog before and was impressed by your talent. Good luck with the show. It is always so hard to know how to price things, especially in this economy.

Thanks a lot everyone. The artwork in now hung in the public library. I need to hang the supporting literature e.g. facts on poverty and human rights. Tonight I saw the newspaper article in the local section. front page - big, colorful picture of me. And inside a two page interview and shots of the paintings. On Tuesday, the Archbishop and entourage and guest will officially open the show. This was all arranged by the different organizations I am supporting with my art.

Am I nervous? You bet.

Wow sounds like you have great coverage in the newspaper for your show. You'll do wonderful! I don't see how your paintings could fail to capture the imaginations of the viewers... not possible. Smile

Thanks for all the great comments. The show ends in a few days. I sold one of the paintings. The rest may go to another province for another show. One of the problems is that the frames have a finish on them that scratches easily. I will be more careful when selecting frames next time.

Not sure if my other post went through. So please excuse if this is a repeat.

I hope that other artists (groups) will host their own "Art of Sharing' Project. it has been such an incredible experience for me. Not only did it give me lots of motivation to paint, but I also rec'd lots of publicity and invitations to exhibit in other shows - not to mention the real reason for the show - Generate awareness on global issues and an opportunity to raise funds.

we are thinking of holding a provincial show in Fredericton next year with other artists taking part.

rather than mess up this post again, I am going to upload pictures in the next post. I haven't had any luck with uploading here yet.

Thanks Janet.

Now that I look at the picture, I need to point out that the cardboard signage wasn't because I was cheap with the display. We were trying to emphasize the use of materials on hand.
