Last month I mentioned that I hoped all the April rain would result in masses of May flowers. We've been getting a lot of rain still, actually today is the first rain-free day we've had accompanied by summer like temperatures. I'm actually feeling the heat as I type this and am pondering turning on the air conditioning system. My forsythia has bloomed and now the greenery is appearing, creating a nice full hedge for my little sparrow friends to enjoy. I've been busy in the flower shop, putting in almost eighty hours on Mother's Day Week. Things have died down somewhat there as I try to restore things in the design room to normal. My cards have been selling at the shop, which I'm quite pleased about.
This month my little grandson will be a year old. I can't wrap my head around how fast that year has gone. It seems like yesterday that I was writing about his appearance; at the same time he seems to have been in our little family forever. I simply cannot imagine life without his sweet face and character. Truly a joy and such a delight. He is discovering new things every day and I try to spend as much time with him as possible.
I am so pleased to announce that this year's Twitter Art Exhibit, in support of Art In Healthcare was an enormous success, with opening night and online sales to date reaching over £15,000 which is approximately $25,650 in Canadian funds. The online sales are ongoing and can be seen and purchased through Art In Healthcare's website: www.artinhealthcare.org.uk/buyonline.php
I'm also absolutely thrilled to say that both my and my daughter's postcard sold on opening night. I can't express how excited I was to wake up to that message on Twitter from the buyer, another artist from Edinburgh that I was aleady connected through Twitter and Instagram with. My daughter's card was also purchased by a fellow artist, and that's an awesome feeling. That's two years in a row our work has been purchased on opening night. Looking forward to next year's event which is taking place in Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. A place I was quite familiar with some years ago.
Next month I have two shows, one at my favourite Ormsby's Garden Centre and the other in Collingwood. I had better get painting!!!
See you in June. Many Blessings to you and yours.
