I spent the whole weekend at our yearly exhibition of my painting class. It's also important for the city to show that they have artists as inhabitants. An advertising was published in the local Newspaper and in the City hall and other public buildings hang a poster of the exhibition.

It started at 11 am on Saturday where the vernissage took place. The deputy mayor held a speech and a toast was made to the artists. We had a buffet with Champagne, orange juice and water and sweet and salty snacks. The responsible of our painting class, Ilona and I together with our teacher stayed the whole day to show the visitors around. My other classmates were "on duty" for 2 h during the two days.

We had quiet a lot of visitors on Saturday and on Sunday afternoon even more

At the end we were all quiet tired but very happy with the result of our exhibition which ended Sunday late afternoon.

In the evening I was so tired and my feet on fire ! Mr. G. served me Chinese noodles with chicken which was very good and at 9.30 I fell in my bed !

Your paintings are very colourful, I love them. Do you take the paintings home again or are they for sale on the day? Or are they judged and prizes awarded? I think your class is very talented.

Well done on those excellent paintings, Gattina! I also wondered if the exibits were for sale or judged or both.I can imagine how sore your feet were after two days of standing on them. Looks like your town appreciates culture and especially the arts. Have a good week. Jo

WOW it's really nice that your city advertises so much its talents! It's really a good thing and I'm sure you had a great time. Were the painting also for sale? I guess yes....

Hello!
I love your cat paintings! It seems you are using color to express each cat's personality. And the group together - they fit like a zigsaw puzzle.
And the table decorations - very good! I can see you put a lot of work into this. Now you can get some rest.
Have a blessed day,
Lea
