Library Show







Today I went to the Hedberg library as soon as it opened, so as to avoid having people see me taking pictures of my own exhibit.  Anyway, for those of you who asked, here it is. There are 35 watercolors, prints and colored pencil pieces, and a display case with some illustrated journals. I also put in some books relating to journaling (The Zen of Seeing, Creative License, Diary of an Edwardian Lady), some pens and pencils, and a travel watercolor set.  I see people looking, but I haven't had the nerve to peek at the comment sheet yet.

Thanks to the Hedberg Public Library in Janesville, WI, for giving area artists an opportunity to show their work.

Sherry, It was just thrilling looking at your work framed and hanging on the library walls. I enlarged every image to see the larger images of the artwork. I had no idea some of the paintings I'd seen on your blog or FLICKR were such a substantial size. They just look beautiful. What an accomplishment. Congratulations!

Congratulations! and thank you so much for sharing the pictures. It's so fun to see things I recognize from your Flickr in this real life context. They all look amazing! and I'd no idea they were so large - gives me an entirely different perspective on them. It must be such a treat for everyone who visits the library.

Sherry,
I was downtown taking photos of all the flooding and when I got to the library sandbags, we headed inside. I was thrilled to find your exhibit inside and spent a bit of time taking in your whole show. Such amazing work! I hope to go back and really observe sometime soon!
