art show at cos cob library -month of June

I have 28 paintings on view for the month of June at the local library --I was asked by my artist friend Susie if I would share the space with her! At first I was hesitant as I consider my paintings and drawing amateurish, but then I figured it would be motivation to get some of my work finished and framed --and it was fun going through my portfolio and deciding what works to use (from 3 classes I take)--we even had an opening on June 7 in the afternoon and I showed some of my unframed work and pottery pieces. It was such a busy afternoon, no one in my family could make it but Susie's 4 girls and husband came and her mother! I had about 12-13 art friends and some school friends and even Linda Putnam (my local running friend) came --so it was fun. Francoise's daughter Mia is modelling in front of my work.
My parents are coming nex week for high school graduation so they will see it...and I hope my drawing teacher will stop by. Had we had the opening at night and with wine, we would have gotton more than our 50 people -but it was good.

what a great accomplishment!!! I wish I could see it in person, I know nothing about art but it is so much more intriguing when you know the artist!!!
congrats
