Open House

On Sunday, the first day to really feel like summer, we had another Open House, the third since the fundraiser. Laurie Reid, Dave Hallstead, Val Rutter, Richard Austin, Odessa Bromley, Amerval DuPlanty, and others came to share the garden and artwork. Here's Marcel, my favourite visitor.

Jan Jensen sponsored 2 paintings in the garden for August 19th - her nephew's wedding. She's going to pay it forward by inviting her sister to sponsor a family of paintings on the special day. Here's Pat and Bill Forst. They're sponsoring 2 floating paintings on Aug 2nd.

Dana Caple Smith, a long time supporter ( chose a couple of art cards to support the installation. Her sponsorship will appear on the blog August 4, 5 and 6. Bonni Ross and her husband, Matthew discussed the LOTUS artwork and how it's connected to meditation.

Here's Jackie Allen Gye, with one of her choices of art cards. She was impressed that they're printed on archival paper with archival inks. She's sponsoring the opening, along with Beth & Robert Studer.
