Grand opening of 50 Penn Place Gallery relocation was last night, next to Ful Circle bookstore. Great crowd. Been a while since I displayed there, but one of the new principals of the coop is teacher and friend Cletus Smith. Fellow student and painter Phyllis Pace is also displaying there.

Before going there we toured the photo exhibits at JRB at the Elms in Paseo. Afterwards we ate at Paseo Grill--terrific musroom soup, and then a little something in the terrific Red Piano Bar at historic Skirvin Hotel.

So much to write about, to paint, to do.


  1. Sounds like a full night. We thought we'd run into you two at Live on the Plaza. Maybe next time.
