After the Opening

The show is hung. The opening was frightening for a shy person like me but so many kind friends showed up that I felt greatly supported. And now I get to keep this beautiful flower arrangement that my mum made for the opening. Parrot tulips and bleeding heart from the garden and white ranunculus from the grocery store. The sun is even peeking out from the storm clouds. Life feels pretty good today. Thank you to all my lovely friends who came and shared the love last night. La vie est belle.

(Can anyone spot Opal in this picture? Crazy cat has to be in every photo)


  1. Wish I could have been zapped across the miles to be there. So glad it was a happy occasion for you. Now I am looking forward to your painterly interpretation of your mum's lovely bouquet.

  2. Jean, I can imagine a painting of these beautiful flowers. We are almost neighbors. I am on Whidbey Island

  3. The tail adds a certain something, that would be lacking otherwise. Beautiful arrangement :)

  4. I too wish I could have been there, Jean, but I'm glad to see that it's gone well and that you've already sold some of your marvelous paintings. And I love Opal's presence in your bouquet!

  5. Jean!

    Congrats on making it through the opening in one piece!

    The flower arrangement looks lovely!
