Star Fruit #2

Before I get to my post today, I will mention that many of you have been telling me about problems accessing my blog or my comments section over the past several months. I ask that you email me at Wendl15@verizon.net (How do I make my email a link?) if you have this problem and thanks to those who have. It seems to be something I will have to go to blogger help and figure out myself. I would rather have a root canal :( Also, my feeds seem to have been interrupted by my blog becoming oversize and 'invalid'. That will take another trip to FeedBurner help and there's something I need to do there to reduce the size of my blog. I KNEW this had been TOO EASY, TOO LONG :::grrrr:::: So bear with me. I will get it straightened out soon. On a lighter note, a little gallery called "Art Boutique at Tin City", opened up here in Naples a few weeks ago and I was asked to submit work. They accepted some of my 6x6's on easels and a rack of my note cards. I'm waiting on mats for a number of small watercolors to shrink wrap for bin work and they asked for several copies of my giclee of Day's Cottages, one to be framed. Today I went down and painted in the gallery. Behind me was a picture window which folks could watch through. The staff are great people who are really into it. They have to re-hang frequently as new art comes in and are very attentive but not intrusive to the browsers. Rather than try for a winning painting in the unfamiliar setting, I used the time to finish up this star fruit painting, and schmooze with the customers. It was great! Here are some photos from today.

okay, the email link goes to my Verizon sign in page. Not my intention. Another thing on my list to streamline my blog. I'll get this all worked out.
Thank you all for visiting!
