Almost forgot the most excellent news! Sus at Gualala Arts called yesterday to ask if they could keep "Cloud Edge" up beyond the closing of the "Living on the Edge" show! He liked the work and liked seeing it high above the foyer and wants to keep it there until someone has a show and asks to have it taken down. Forgive me, but this feels so good especially as the piece got no ribbon and not even a mention in the Beads N' Beyond emails. The others had to take their pieces home and I get to keep my work in the gallery. This is the fifth piece I have shown at Gualala Arts Center that they have kept up beyond the show it was entered into originally. Probably a record. Sorry B.; I just had to brag! It takes some of the dents out of my self esteem.
