I am back from my high school class birthday celebration.....our collective 80th birthdays and after visiting my old homestead in Warren PA and having trouble walking up the stairs to the second floor, I realized with surprise that the stairs were much steeper than I remembered and I hung on the banister for dear life.  Yikes.   I had a solo show in Warren PA during the birthday celebration.  The show was at the Warren Library and the library hosted the show with great enthusiasm.  The show depicted the theme of memory paintings.  All my memory paintings sold and it was exciting for me how they inspired the visitors to their memories.  there are big art shows at this time at the White Bear Lake center for the Arts and the Ames Center in Burnsville.  I'm in each of them and they are great shows.  Also Northrup King Studio 321 is now open for Saturdays from 12 noon to 4.  Tonight they are having at Northrup King open studios from 6 to 10 and we will be open.  Lots of things happening in the art world and I am grateful that I can be part of it.  Emmy
