A very creative snail, realized by a 80 year old resident of the Waterloo Retirement home

a crocodile by a 82 year old resident

and this turtle by a 81 year old lady !




This weekend was very tiring as we had our Painting exhibition.  Each two years our city organizes a "parcours des artistes" (artist path) through the whole city for their artists, in private houses, in ateliers or in rented rooms. After a Vernissage in the cultural center, we started on Saturday. 

Myriam and I had prepared everything for our visitors in the morning and opened the room at 11 am. As soon as the door was open people arrived !

Myriam and I the new responsible  of our painting group. The photo was taken by the alderman of art and culture.

Nicole loves to play bar maid and did her job with enthusiasm, sometimes I had to tell her not to give to much of champagne to some very old people !

There were little snacks, Champagne, Champagne without alcohol, orange juice and Coca Cola. The new signature book got a lot of very friendly comments and a lot of compliments !

According to all our visitors our room looked very pretty.

Here I am with all my paintings, the cats, the penguin cat and the pouring (not purring)

Visitors the whole two days ! Some paintings were sold

and then we  had to take down the paintings and dismantle the panels and grids.

I must admit that when I came home I was half dead ! Fortunately Mr. G had prepared supper (by pushing on the button of the microwave) and I recovered quickly, because I really was happy that everything went so smooth. And we also had a lot of fun.

Well done! It looked great and it must have been good to have many visitors and nice comments. I'm not surprised you were exhausted though. Thank goodness for microwaves lol
