Hanging the Show with my True Love

Last night we (Larry) hung the show and I’ve made a little movie of it for you.

I’m dashing out the door for a couple of days with him on Brier Island and will resume sending you images on Monday.

Larry has been my support in my art journey since we met in our 20’s. His love and encouragement have lifted me for many years.
