It has been a busy May with both openings for Sojourns Part I & II in Houston and Dallas respectively. I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who came out to see the exhibitions, to my fantastic art dealer in Houston, Laura Rathe, and to the wonderful Smink sisters in Dallas, who I have absolutely loved working with and getting to know. I really enjoyed meeting so many collectors and fellow artists, and I am deeply grateful for my family and dear friends who were able to share these evenings with me. I am simply filled with gratitude!
Here are a few pics from the opening reception of Sojourns Part II in Dallas. Well, more than a few.

Love the way this triptych hangs with this Gary Beals sculpture. The triptych is my favorite piece from the show.

Talented singer Michael Stewart looking so Southern and dapper in his seer sucker suit.
