The first time that my crack collection of 21 paintings, had its own solo show. My first solo show was at Mayor Ed Murray's private gallery. 11/18/16 - 2/14/17. It was amazing. The staff asked me to give an artist talk and I spoke for about thirty mins and then there was a question and answer session. It was hard at times because I had to be open and honest in a crowd of 21 professional people. Not knowing how they would receive me or the choices I had made in my life. It worth every minute.
