This is me at the door of the gallery for the Vernissage, March, 2010. I didn't have a large body of artwork to display for the show (wall of paintings on the left) but the evening was a success. Lots of wine, live guitar music, and pizza, and many new guests and friends arrived to see the opening.

This is the first painting that I sent to Nice for my first Vernissage to celebrate the opening of gallery 6 Place Vieille. This painting was painted in my studio in Indiana, and directly inspired by my second vacation trip to Nice, August 2009. The inspiration and energy that came with me when I returned was intense. I was able to start and finish the painting within two weeks after my return. I was proud to send it because it show cased my skill in oil painting that was unfamiliar to my friends in Nice. This was a painting that represented me in my new gallery.
