My Sister's Art Show!!

This past week I traveled to Kirkwood, Missouri with my husband, my daughter, and two grandsons to see the opening reception of my sister's art show.

Her paintings were fantastic. Shall I brag about my sister? She has an MBA, an MSW, a third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, she's a devoted mother to two adult sons after having spent several decades as an outstanding stay-at-home mom, AND she's an amazing artist. I started crying when I walked in to the show. So much for the water resistant mascara.

It was in the historic Kirkwood train station, a charming 125 year old building in beautiful downtown Kirkwood. The setting was just lovely!

Here are some of my favorites of her paintings. My photography does not do them justice.

 I love this one!!!! (OK. I loved them all, truth be told.)

The reception was well attended, with many friends also coming by...

 OK. This is my grandson...

 My sister and her friends provided delicious refreshments.

 So pretty!

 My sister is on the far left in the beautiful coral color and the handsome young man next to her is my nephew Matt, named for his saintly great Uncle Matt, since he was born on the day of my dear uncle's passing to eternal life, many years before.

It was a lovely venue with beautiful paintings, great food, and fun times. So happy I was able to go.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these paintings email me and I will get you my sister's contact information. Three sold during the show!
