Since I paint at home (my studio is also known as the master bedroom!), I host the Open Studio event in my house. I set up all of my work in the downstairs and invite people to browse at their leisure. I also offer snacks and drinks so that my guests feel well taken care of.

Prints and note cards set up in the family room
The living room with this collection of work is one of the first things visitors see.
Over the next week or so I will be sharing more photos from the Open Studio. Since the event was limited to local people, by sharing in this way I am hoping my fans and friends who are further afield will get to feel like you were actually there.
I am also having a "door prize" drawing for this Virtual Open Studio, just like I did for the real life one. To enter all you need to do is comment on this post or any of the upcoming Virtual Open Studio 2010 posts. To have multiple chances to win, comment on multiple posts. You will receive one entry for each post you comment on. The drawing will be held one week after I publish the final Open Studio post. The winner will receive a pack of note cards featuring my art. (More on that later.)
So come back with your glass of wine and plate of canapes and enjoy my Virtual Open Studio. I look forward to seeing your there.
