I spent time with wonderful artist friends. I met new friends who I had previously only known from the web. It was exciting to meet everyone up close and personal. So much talent. I went to a very festive artful party given by Tom Haney and his wife Paula Joerling who both create beautiful artwork. Tom sells one of a kind artwork while Paula creates art for licensing like myself. I felt so blessed to have met Paula on Facebook and be invited to her party! What kind and generous souls they are!
Here are some of the artists at the party in Paula's most amazing loft studio.
This is me and the famous Tom Haney in his most amazing loft studio. For some great photos of his artwork from this event check out my friend Janet's blog post.
Saturday night I went to a large dinner gathering with artists who I know from online and the industry. I had a great time. One of the highlights of my trip was meeting up with my childhood friend Shari. We had a lovely breakfast at the Ritz.
Shari & me - I met her in 1st grade.
