I was surprised and delighted to discover a latent lantana (above) sprouting from what I thought was a long dead, and dried hanging basket which I had tucked into a neglected corner in reach of a sprinkler. Who knew that there could be a resurrection of sorts in August?!!
And last, but not least:
SOMEBODY BOUGHT THIS PAINTING!
The Newburyport Art Association gallery attendant called this morning to say that another artist who was picking up his/her paintings asked if this had sold. And when it hadn't, said he/she had to have it. His/Her entry had apparently been a pool table and ball, so the "Rack 'Em Up" title turned out to be too much to resist.
Since there wasn't an entry fee for this exhibit, and the canvases were provided, even with the gallery's percentage, I made a profit.
