Hanging this little show at my local cooperative gallery yesterday made me so excited for the exhibition of my Hundred Thank Yous paintings that is scheduled for the first half 2012!
This photo shows 6 out of 70 paintings that are completed so far. That’s 70 paintings! I am getting so close to having them all ready to give away (after my exhibition). The writing underneath each painting is a note from me to the person the painting is for, saying why I am so thankful for her/him. When I was writing the note, I felt washed over with love, literally. I think my heart might actually burst when I finish writing all of the letters and see them all hanging together- 100 paintings, 100 thank you notes to 100 lovely souls.
Right now I am not sure exactly when the show will be held, but it will be sometime after Christmas. I recently Skyped with filmmakers Hailey and her mum, Toni, from the 365 Grateful documentary and they are planning to come to New York to interview me about my project and include me in their film about gratitude. Exciting! I adore both of them and can hardly wait to meet them in person. They show such warmth in their actions and faith in the power of gratitude to change lives- plus their Australian accents are too delightful for words!
My husband and I just got back from a trip to Chicago. I love that city! I am still unpacking, organizing and settling back into being home again.
PS: Did I mention I got an iPhone? WHY didn’t I get one sooner??? LOVE LOVE LOVE
