After 28 years 2008 marked my final year on the art show circuit. It was with mixed feelings that I participated in my last show but it was a beautiful way to go out. Christkindl Market held at the Granger House Museum in Canandaigua in November was one glorious experience and it holds bittersweet memories for me now as I look back. The venue included several very large heated tents decorated with all the trimmings that the Christmas season could inspire. There was entertainment throughout the three day festival and the most wonderful food available at all times. Buggy rides around the extensive grounds of the Granger House and tours of the home were a particularly nice touch and if people in charge of an event could be nicer or more helpful, I dont know where that would be. I saw many old friends there, people came from all over and there was an air of festivity throughout the entire weekend....I even won 1st prize for painting and was awarded a big blue ribbon...well, actually it was a big red and white ribbon but you get the idea. It made my weekend special.

I wish to thank everyone who ever stepped inside my booth over all these years. You have made my choosen life very special. I loved talking to you about art, your family, your pets and just life in general. If you bought a painting, then thank you for that ..I will always be in your life, and you in mine. If you just came to browse, that's fine too, I get a special lift when you care enough to do that! You can still do that through my website and my 'blog' which will be onboard very soon.

I expect to have more time to create new works now and they will be posted on this site as soon as they are dry! I do hope you will come to look at them and e-mail me with your comments. After all these years it would be very lonely without you!
