A Peek Into Our Show...

Hello...For those of you who could not attend our "Gathering of Friends" Art Show...let's peek at my snapshots. First, the artists...Leslie McCabe, Allen Cunningham, Paul Gordon, Dana Wade (good friend and hostess), Pat Murphy and me. We are all very good friends and have all been doing shows in Southern California for many years. We all have dreamed of having an intimate, friendly and high quality last year we just did it. There is no promoter...we put it together by committee. Dana and her husband Jack offered a banquet room in their beautiful restaurant and Voila..."We did it!"

Here is Leslie's colorful table...

She is a master with textiles...Hooked wool pillows,  Russian Punch Needle framed pieces, ribbon corsages and beautiful beaded jewelry...all of her own design.
