"35 on 35" THIS WEEKEND












"Cargill Grain Elevator" 10" x 20" oil/canvas

The paintings are hung, the portfolio
is published and it is showtime!
This weekend is my much anticipated
one-man show "35 on 35". Tomorrow is
a demo in the gallery from 2 to 5 and
Saturday the show opens at 6:00.

Never had a one-man show before so I'm
not sure how I am suppose to feel, but
I can tell you I am a little anxious and at the
same time I feel a huge sense of accomplishment.
To take a concept to completed paintings to
a show is new to me. I have to thank
Riverbend Fine Art for supporting my idea
and gallery director, Marta Stafford for all
of her encouragement and unbridled enthusiasm.

No matter what happens this weekend, I am a better
painter than I was before I started. I hope this
show is the kick in the pants I have needed to
move my art and career to the next level...
whatever that is. I will post the show online
next week and give you a full report on
the opening activities.

Your art was beautiful. I am flabbergasted that this was your first one-man show. The second will be of the Texas Coast.

Love,
Cameron and Maryann
