Museum of the Everglades staff did a great job of putting out some yummy food for the reception on Saturday, and a number of friends old and new attended. It's easy to make new friends talking about art. Congratulations and thanks to new collectors Michele and Leo Deutsch of Marco Island who purchased "Family" and to Judy & Steve Aldrovondi, who added "Rain is Coming" to their collection of my work. I probably won't get much painting done in the next couple of days. We'll be busy helping family who are coming back from the north tomorrow following a major leak in their condo. What a mess!
