Lily Pads at Spruce River... and O'Reilly Insurance

Just a quick note before I head off for a much needed beauty rest! I have been fighting a bit of insomnia, so my fingers are crossed that tonight is the night for deep sleep.

I really love this painting- it looks great in my bathroom... and it looks great at O'Reilly Insurance which is where it is hanging right now. I am looking forward to the reception tomorrow evening. I hope to meet new people and see familiar faces. All are welcome, so if you are in Saskatoon please swing by.

I really have to say a huge thank you to Declan O'Reilly and his staff for this amazing venture they have begun at their office. Declan has a vision of supporting local artists, in particular newer artists, by providing a beautiful venue for them to show their work and also by organizing a reception at some time during the show. It is not easy for an artist to get their name "out there" if they are not represented by a gallery, so to have a business step up and offer their walls is what I consider a gift. It feels like that to me and I am grateful.

O'Reilly Insurance is blessed to have some wonderful works of art gracing their walls. Good luck with the show tomorrow night... and good luck with sleep to-night.
