As I sit at my desk and look out of the window at the snow that has already began to fall, and contemplate the impending storm, slated as the Blizzard of 2015, I decide I’m ready. I’m ready for the storm, both mentally and physically. I’m ready with enough groceries to last my family a couple of days should we be snowed in. I waited in line at the pump to fill up my car’s gas tank (looked like the whole town was trying to do the same). I got clean water and the flashlights ready. The snow blower is all set and ready to go.
I’m ready for the nor’easter that is headed our way and expected to blanket the entire northeastern part of the US. The forecast says to expect between 3 to 5 feet of snow in the next 24 hours and wind gusts between 30-60mph. I’m ready!! I’m ready to brace myself for the storm and hunker down for the next couple of days and now…. I chose to think of something other than the looming storm. Something that will warm my heart on this cold winter day.
I reminisce about last Friday. The opening reception for “A Show of Hands”, where I had three of my artwork on display, was held that day. It was such a lovely event. So many people came out to see the artwork. There were different types of artwork, paintings, wearables, whimsical art, wall art and many more, created with one form of fiber or the other. It is such a colorful show. I tried to take pictures to share with all of you but there were so many people viewing my work at almost any point in time that it was hard to do so. All three pieces- Beauty Looms Ahead, Piecing Beauty and Lime Lights received rave reviews. I was in awe of how well they were received and how truly appreciative patrons were of the work that had gone into creating them.
As I said, I’d wanted to share lots of photos with you so you could experience the event with me but I couldn’t get many good shots. Here are the few pictures I got for you to enjoy. The show is on till March 15. Do swing by if you are in the neighborhood or can drive up there. It’s a great show, beautifully hung- Spectrum Gallery did a good job.
