Merry Christmas

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family life.

Whatever is is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever." - Neil Gaimen

Hanging Art at Orange Glory Cafe

 Thank goodness for my husband Chris. He's the guy that knows how to measure the walls, find the studs behind the paneling, and adjust the wire on a painting so they all hang level.

 Figuring out how to hang that very heavy painting behind him. You can't use just one nail for that.

 Measuring an marking the wall with blue tape.

 The first nail goes in the wood paneling.

 Gathering the hardware.

 Looking good.

 This is a lot of work! I'm getting tired just watching him.
It took Chris four hours to hang the art work.

 A sneak peak of part of the show.

 The frame is straight, it's my crazy painting that's crooked.That explains a lot doesn't it.

The opening is this Wednesday, December 19th in The Times Square building from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
Join us if your in Rochester.
