The weather had been less than desirable for days (well, weeks--to be honest). Strong winds and intermittent rains brought me to the conclusion that, while the weather the night of my opening was likely to be less than ideal, I assumed it wouldn't actually impact the (indoor) event itself.

There are baby goaties! Granted, I have no idea if these babies belong to Miss Goaty, but they are super adorable and make cute little goat noises.

He seemed to like my work, because he pointed at several images, commenting "Linda," which means "Beautiful." So that was very nice of him, despite the fact-- he also seemed relatively disappointed by my inability to... Continue Reading →
