Just got back from a wonderful mini vacation at Rapidan Camps. Fire in the fireplace, rushing river outside, just me and Jennie
talking for hours. Bliss!

I have exciting news! When I went to PA on Tuesday to see the exhibition, I talked to the gallery owner about my paintings. I
showed her some of my marketing materials and a few paintings I had brought with me, and she liked my work so much that I am
going to have my own show at the gallery in December! And if things work out well, I will be having a Fall-themed show in
October of next year! I'm very excited. I have a lot of work to do in the next month, because I will be filling up a pretty large
space. I am confident that I can do it.
