On Sunday evening I went to the Loft Gallery just before closing time so I could hang my 5 pastel paintings on my assigned wall space. I wasn't sure what to do at first but a friend of mine (and very good watercolor artist!), Carrie Cole, gave me some great pointers. She suggested I lay out all my paintings on the floor to figure out an arrangement. I loved it! I was able to come up with a nice hanging arrangement quickly. Then hanging the 5 paintings went pretty smoothly. The final touch was putting up my name plate above the paintings. I am excited! I am officially a gallery artist!
