The reception on July 19th 2015 at the Weston Public Library went better than i expected. About 40 people attended the reception and several wrote to me privately about how sorry they are to miss the reception, and that they will attend next time.
I sold 1 painting"Bamboo" to my artist friend Pat, and 4 other guests have a strong interest in buying other paintings. Also sold about 30 cards made from photos of he artwork.
A big thank you to my friends Lopa and Kartik for the video (Which i will be posting soon on youtube ) and photos.
A special thank you to my friend Terry, who is a freelance arts reviewer, she has written for The Westford Eagle, The Boston Globe Magazine, Wild Apples Literary Journal, and The Middlesex Beat.She conducted a captivating gallery talk about my work.

|Jar of Olives|
18" x 24" (large painting)
Olives have been a favorite of artists since ancient times.
At the end of 1889, Van Gogh painted different versions of his olive tree paintings,more recently Michael Godard paints a more modern version of olives.I also enjoyed painting my jar of olives with my experimental stencil design in the background.

Another experimental abstract painting full of life and color. "The Public Garden is truly a people’s park and a public pride. It is not only accessible to everyone, but citizens have always played an extraordinary role in protecting and preserving it." http://friendsofthepublicgarden.org/our-parks/public-garden/
This painting is created to celebrate that idea!!

|Dinner Party Arrangement|
18" x 24"
This is a painting that came together in bits and pieces.I had a photo of the flower arrangement, found a photo of the white dresser table in a catalog, added the brass pot and sheer fabric from my own collection of things to paint and created a composition. I wanted the painting to be light and airy.
