The Naturalists' Notebook Show

You know you are in the right place..
when you see the loveliest
French shop
with the little gallerie

tucked around the window and just 

down ancient stairs 
and into the cool of the 
sanctuary below...

crafted the most beautiful windows

The Naturalists' Notebook show
taking great care to create something
that would wow
visitors and collectors and stop them 
in their tracks..

The ancient urns outside were magnificent

Ancient urns with the menu, prices and my artist statement for The Naturalists' Notebook

and who could resist this wonderful, welcoming 
ambiance.. ?

that evening the posters were placed on music stands..
at the front of the store and gallerie..

and in the planters 
they placed 
the menu
which included prices 
artist statement 

I adored the skirt 
she made from the Cavallini

and right around the corner and
just below...
down well worn steps...

Meg set the whole area, as it appeared in my dream
with an antique settee
and lots of ephemera
nestled about...

winged creatures 
all hanging out together..

It was quite stunning...

I cannot express the overwhelming feeling of seeing all 
my work displayed 
in such a beautiful fashion..
it took my breath away...

The Notebook 
was displayed below 
so that collectors
could leaf through it easily...
with as little stress on the old book as possible..

how often do you get the chance to purchase the rough draft for 
a piece of art as well as the finished painting?

it was well received 
and we had a great turn out...

The dream is written on the poster hanging from the ceiling on the left... as collectors peruse the show.

we held two shows...
one on Friday evening, 
and one on Saturday afternoon..
it was so lovely to see so many friends
and collectors 
and to spend time with this 

Meg DeWeese..
Meg has owned
Bis Gallerie
for 27 years!

she has represented me for 
10 years
we were so happy to 
not only the show..
but our 

a little champs was involved!!

I love EsScentuals! I was lucky enough to be there before either of your shows to peruse and purchase the piece I fell in love with. And to look at your book. It was lovely.
