Welcome to My First Art Show

Welcome to My First Art Show

In January, I was blessed with the opportunity to show my artwork at a local gallery.  In Longwood, there's a small warehouse that houses the Kaleidoscope Gallery and Venue for the Arts.  This was a lovely opportunity to get the first show jitters out of my system. The week prior to the show, I dropped [...]
