The end of a busy but very satisfying day! Today was the opening of my first exhibition for my art students work. The studio/classroom has been transformed into a gallery, my students' paintings have been matted, framed and hung. Friends, neighbours and family have lingered and enjoyed food, conversation and paintings, crowding the tiny gallery and spilling out into the garden. All seemed to enjoy themselves and students totally affirmed by the positive response. I have to say I am totally proud of their accomplishments.
