It was great to discover that AVAA had selected my painting to introduce the show. "Easter Posies" has gone through several iterations, but seems to have arrived at a very satisfactory completion.
Laurel joined me to celebrate the show opening at the reception.

Last evening was the opening reception for the Arts Across the Americas Show at UT. It is primarily art from Austin and Lima, Peru, but there are also several interesting paintings from Brazil. The sales from the show will go to benefit young mothers in Peru.
This simple painting has been a bit of a struggle. The most recent iteration is at the top, and, as always, the colors are a bit off because I haven't mastered my camera.
This was in Eze where the ancient steps are very narrow. It takes careful maneuvering to negotiate them, especially carrying a laden tray.
We were staying in Vieux Nice on a weekend when the local churches celebrated a Festival (or Blessing) of the Flowers. The talent was obviously all local, ranging from folk dances to a rather tacky beauty contest, but the whole thing was interesting. It felt as if Vieux Nice were a small town within the larger city. This woman was preparing the greens for the garlands to decorate the entrance to one of the participating cathedrals.
