My first exhibit reception is now behind me, and I have to say I think it was a resounding success. For three hours, there was a parade of friends and colleagues, all focused on my photography, and seeming to enjoy both the work as well as the conversation.

It seems like I blinked and it was over… I know it was really three hours of stress though, ’cause I’m beat! And, as Sio would remind me, there was no reason to stress over it. It went very well, and there really was genuine praise for my work. That was so cool.

And, I sold one piece — a 16 x 20 of the swirling leaves photo that I like so well. That was also very nice. However, had I not sold a thing, I’d have still been thrilled for the experience of having so many folks enjoying my work, and enjoying a celebration like this.
