nothing like an art show PAFA

There’s nothing like an art show, a gala event – especially when your favorite youngest daughter has her first wall in the show…

a beautiful artist...

    You do look like a proud father. 🙂 And know that Janet is a proud mother. Congrats to your daughter. That is a very special moment in her life. And thanks for recently visiting my blog site and commenting, too, Bill.

    Congratulations to your daughter and to proud dad, too. My oldest daughter is an artist and has a single piece accepted to shows and even awards. Ihope someday to be able to see a wallow her work. You may have whole studio of your daughters work to take photos to share. She is a lovely young woman! 🙂

      what medium does your daughter favor ?

      • reocochran says:

        Carrie’s award winning piece was of three nudes in silhouette, gray, black and white using shading with charcoals or chalks. My daughter presently loves photography, creative projects with her two sons and is not using her art in making money but as a pastime.

        By the way, my comment looks so funny and crazy, since my writing was taken over by Chrome phone. The week I had my new phone, this comment was given. Above, it should read I would like to see a wall of her work. Wallowing is for pigs. ha ha!

        I have only one big piece of Carrie’s but two college ones, one a sepia brown, white and chalk portrait of a friend and another an acrylic painting of a waterfall she and some of our church youth group jumped into after working all day building a recreation center in the Appalachian mountains for an impoverished area. The water is muddy looking and still refreshing. Thanks for asking, Bill, about my daughter’s artwork.

    Exciting work, Bill–the apple certainly doesn’t fall far from the trees! Much talent in your family.

  4. Congrats to both of you. I used to be a docent and love that work done by installation artists that transcends the boundaries of the expected. Bravo.

  8. Congrats to both of you.
    Was that her tapestry behind you and her work surrounding her?
    Please tell us more about what she is doing? What is she using to create her work?
    More pics?

  9. A celebration is, indeed, in order. You clean up good Bill and your daughter is gorgeous! ❤

      I think that a father is always most proud of the character of his children… few things shine so brightly in a father’s eyes 🙂

    Rather, I look forward to the lunch photos. Those horns. Spectacular.

    • billgncs says:

      made on printed material – and mounted through magnets – she then mounted a metal plate with countersunk screws and attached the horns to the plate.

      What’s interesting is her prints – of birds or heyena’s are more apt to sell, but this was her voice.

      • Sabiscuit says:

        They’re gorgeous and I appreciate the effort it took to build them. The magnet idea is great, because they can be moved around. I am a fan of horns now. Thanks for that. I hope she sells out, soon. x

    • billgncs says:

      What was a surprise, her friend who was on the wall next to her ( and is a more traditional landscape artist ) had as the centerpiece a view of a stream in Wyoming near our cabin that she visited for a few weeks last year 🙂

    She’s lovely and talented! Congratulations and enjoy the lunch.
