Midge and Al's Big Show!!

I have been lucky to be in Florida for the last 2 or 3 weeks helping my sister Allison and her girlfriend Midge get ready for their first gallery show together.  The Jeanine Taylor Folk Art Gallery in Sanford, Fl is a very cool place specializing in work from the south. 
It should be a great week, with friends and family flying in from all over the place. There is lots of good food in the freezer just waiting to be chowed down. The first airport pic up is this evening. 
The work is amazing and if you are in the Orlando area check it out. Opening March 17th all day!

I made them a book for folks to sign at the gallery with a cover made from cardboard that has
been used by all of us in arty ways over many years.

May the Blue Bird of Happiness Fly their way!
