I’m delighted to finally have my paintings hanging at the gallery in Moulins, here in France.  Preparations for it seem to have gone on forever.   The exhibition was in fact first organized for May but just 5 weeks ago I received a phone call from the gallery owner asking me to bring it forward to February. This threw me into somewhat of a panic because a lot of my larger paintings were still in Belgium from a previous exhibition.  I worked like a mad woman, managed to rework some of my older works and finally got together 20 works.

2 days ago we were there to hang all the works.  I always find that nerve wracking and I come away thinking maybe I should have hung them differently.  Dream of Beans was definitely a eye catcher and the lighting generally in the gallery was superb.  It really brought out all the colors in my paintings.  It was lovely to see them take on a different life.

The show opened yesterday 1st February but the vernisage is on 9th February.  By this time, a friend of mine has gone to Belgium to collect my paintings which means I will have my paintings back so that I can replace some of the smaller works.  Phew, glad that worked out.  Let’s just hope that it is well received.  The local paper will be coming on 9th February and will do an article on me so hopefully that will bring in some more visitors.  I intend to take more photos later and let you all know how it went.

The exhibition is open from 1st – 26th February – 9.30am – 12 noon and 14.30 – 18.30 Tuesday to Saturday.  It’s at 34 Place d’Allier, Moulins, France. Tel: 0033 975 41 22 90.
