The opening saturday for the Emmaus group exhibition at The House in Calgary was fantastic. The art presented is of high caliber. Sharon has done a wonderful job of instructing new painters and inspiring all to excel. An added treat of the day was Naomi singing which was delightful with spectators being moved to tears, her voice is so strong and melodious.  Emmaus members put on a wonderful spread of fruits veggies and treats, there was abundance.

Here is the surprise back of the Retablo titled "Life Preserver"

This is what the front looked like when finished. With the doors closed the tree of life dips its taproot into the red center of the door panel, but of course in getting ready to go I forgot to get a finished shot with the doors closed. This piece garnered a lot of interest and was sold during the two hour opening.

Congratulations on the sale of this precious piece. I hope you got a good price. It's feels so good to get enough appreciation of your work that someone is willing to lay down their money for it.

Congrats on your sale. It is lovely that someone was so impressed with your work that they wanted the item. I love the shapes. Reminds me of old triptychs.

The person who bought it really got their monies worth and I got the satisfaction of knowing it has a home to go to. My first of a new media is practically a give away which basically cover materials used.
