Reflections One Year On

One year ago last Thursday, I had my opening reception for my Flawless show at Los Gatos Beauty Bar.

It was quite the party! I brewed some beer and had a raffle with prizes ranging from limited edition prints to hair supplies. Friends and fans hung out to check out the 17 new paintings on display.

That was a watershed moment for me. It kicked off this amazing year of being a full-time artist. I've made myself a list to remind myself of how far I've come in a year - from finishing 80 paintings to participating in 16 shows, including being selected for the 50|50 Show at Sanchez Art Center - but suffice it to say that I am so thankful for all the people I've met and all of the opportunities that have come out of taking the leap to pursuing a career I love. I'm having a blast!

Who would have guessed that an art show at a hair salon could yield so much?
