At the end of a busy day, all you need are good friends and a beautiful sunset on a beach.
What more can you ask for.......

"Red Door"

Tonight was my photo exhibit reception for "The Color Fest" I raffled one 16 x 20 photo of "Red Door" from Beijing, China. A Parent of my sons best friend from college won. She was so excited, she showed me what she wrote in my guest book before the raffle, it said "You are so awesome! Your work is beautiful. I love the Beijing door-- my favorite type of setting" I was so thrilled that she won and was able to take home the photo.

Color Fest -- My photo exhibit

When we decided to show our work in Westmont,Il, we simply set out to show our work to as many people as possible. This is not the first time we have worked together, we have shown our works in our photography group "fotoMuses" several times a year for last 5 years or so. We always worked with a set of themes voted by our group but for this show rather than picking a phrase or a word Joan suggested to show colorful photographs to brighten this long and dreary winter in Chicago. We have works from our travel to Mexico, Chicago, Oak Brook fireworks and the Downers Grove Heritage Festival (Village canceled this wonderful festival this year due to budget constraints). After taking 4 hours arranging and hanging our photographs I think we have achieved what we set out to do.... a bright, colorful, and a fun show....
