MY WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 25

What a busy weekend !

We finished the preparations for our exhibition and when everything was ready



a photographer from the newspaper "L'Avenir" (The future) came and took pictures.



and the article was published the next day !



Now the room was ready for the vernissage



The buffet looked very appetizing, and had a lot of success. Nothing was left !



People started to arrive. Mr. G. met our son's math's teacher, whom I hadn't seen since for more than 30 years  ! Micheline (our teacher) and I posed for a picture.

The vernissage was a full success, there were so many people and also some aldermen from the Waterloo city. At 8 pm I left, I was exhausted it had been a very long day !



Saturday and Sunday the exhibition was open from 11 am til 5pm. We were the guards, in the middle sits our administrator who will celebrate her 80th birthday on Thursday ! On the right the aldermen for culture showed up for once, all the other years he was there probably as a ghost, because we never saw him and he pretended that he had been there ! Politicians have to lie, otherwise they wouldn't be politicians ! Most of the people wrote a little note in our "golden book" appreciating our work.

There were again a lot of visitors



The people chatted and some of them hadn't seen each other in years. This masterpiece of a cat should demonstrate "anger", but everybody thought it was a Halloween cat.



Finally on Sunday the exhibition was over, I was the guard for the last time together with our teacher on my left and Christiane on my right. Ilona came with her mother who is still fit like a fish in the water despite her 90 years !

All in all it had been a very nice exhibition, but now I need some rest !

What a huge exhibition. I still like your style of painting and colours the best. Cats always look good. The food looks delicious.

It looks beautiful ... the artwork and the food. How fun to get credit and appreciation for your beautiful work.

I love that one gal knitting away whilst she is doing guard duty. That's an overachiever!
