Idlewild and Opening
The Memphis Urban Sketchers met on my home turf of Idlewild Presbyterian this past Saturday, and it was fun to get to draw with a whole group in the church I grew up in. It's a beautiful old Gothic church, built just before the depression, and it was fun to share it with the group.
I got my first peek at the Memphis Magazine City Guide issue that used my illustrations. It's on sale for the month of August, and it was fun to see my watercolors in print. I took one to my opening Friday night for folks to see.
It was a highlight week for me, art-wise, because the opening for my watercolor show at Playhouse on the Square was wonderful also. I really appreciated so many friends turning out to support me, and it was fun to get to share some of my favorite places with them through art. The show will be up through September 16th, and I hope people will see it and want to visit Greece and Turkey.

Wow, what a great week you've had! Sounds like your show was a great success too. Congrats! Love the new sketches of your old church.

Thank you on all counts, Richard! It's always lovely (as I'm sure you know) when friends turn out to support your work, and it has been an unusually public week for a normally solitary pursuit like art. Always welcome.
