Tomorrow, Sunday, September 26th the Dear Fleisher Exhibition and Sale will be held from 1:00 to 5:00 PM . I donated one 4 x 6 painting to that, as well. I personally feel a debt of gratitude to Fleisher for reasons I won't go into right now, and they are a wonderful part of the Philadelphia community, offering free or low-cost art classes to all comers. So I was very happy to have this chance to show my thanks.

The preview was a fun party! Susan Dineen created gorgeous blue and orange signature drinks she calls Picassos (wish Id thought to take a picture!) and a merry time was had by all.
