      The opening was fun :). People generally liked these paintings and said many positive things. They also gave tons of advice, along the lines of printing and selling holiday cards with images from these paintings. I am not sure I am going to do that. One thing I learned is that small sized paintings should not be shown unframed. I did not have time to frame before the show opened, and the art director wanted these on the wall for the opening night, so we put them up without frames. They are small, and look lonely and lost next to full and half sized acrylics :(.

      One sold! Sentries. But it sold through an online gallery where I also show my oils. Still… I am very excited :D! Thank you for your words and good wishes, Linda!
