Don't let anyone tell you that hanging a show for a bunch of small works is an easy task. But after it was all in place,Â we wereÂ very happy with the results, and I'm glad to report that my husband and I are still married. ;-) Here are a few shots from the show, on view now through Jan. 30th: When we were looking at this space for the gallery, one of the first things I noticed was this cute built-in. It's a perfect display for my minis and my new line of watercolor/pen and inks. Here I've decorated it with some lights and mistle toe:
A close-up that shows some of the ornaments--I like the little silver and gold Christmas balls along the bottom shelf:
On the opposite wall are theÂ landscape paintings of Venice and Lake Como:

Anyone who hasÂ read my blog for a while, or my squidoo lens on hanging art must know I'm a fan of grouping big and small paintings together like this. I'd love to do something similar over my fireplace mantle at home.

IÂ guess that's really all I had time for, photography-wise. I may share a few more snaps and I will definitely share more info on some of the individual pieces in the show very soon.
