Now for the sad part.... In the tired but excited state I was in once I got home, as I was transferring my images from camera to computer, I lost the images of my paintings and the auction! I was sick! I have one painting to re-photograph, but will have to rely on my sister to send me copies of 35mm shots that she took. The auction was covered by press, so I may be able to get some images from Greg Strelecki, the photographer. None of these being digital, I'll have to wait...bummer. On a positive note, I did not lose the reference shots that I took at some of the lovely locations I visited that will make their way into paintings in the future.
So, as I'm able to get images, I'll post them and tell you more about this event and some of the wonderful artists that I was able to meet. For now, here's the one painting that did not sell that I'm keeping for myself(for the time being).
