The Results are In

Now that guests have returned to their own homes and the last of the Thanksgiving dishes and pans are cleaned away, I can focus on the results of this past weekend's Open Studio.

It was the best ever!  And, not just for me.  Reports from most members included exclamations marks.  And comments speculating that the public might be feeling better about the economy.  In fact, one of the members is so excited he is treating us all to a pizza party on Monday.  I'm thinking it doesn't get much better than that.

Here are the pieces that have found new homes:

Sister Rode the Stars to Heaven

Desert Skies


Tide Pooling

Miyajima Nocturne
I also sold a couple of books: one of my own works for 2012 to the buyer of Renewal and two Local Color catalogues.  I also sold a couple of very small pieces that I don't think I ever photographed.  All in all a very satisfying experience.


  1. Congratulations to all who participated! Glad your works found new homes.

  2. What beautiful pieces! I think my favourite is Renewal - I am especially fond of the stripped border around the central trees.

  3. Thank you, both! I'm happy they are out in the world, for sure. And…the Renewal border was inspired by Mary Ellen Hopkin's long ago book Hidden Wells…mine are a nod to her love of surprise.

  4. Fabulous results and congrats to you and all the artists! I sure love your Tide Pooling piece... hope it went to a good home :)

  5. Congratulations, Diane! That is excellent news! Glad it was a successful endeavor.

  6. Congratulations on the sales! Sounds like a great weekend. Happy Thanksgiving :-)

  7. I'm happy...for the most part...I kinda wish Tide Pooling didn't sell. But, heck, I can't keep rolls and rolls of quilts stored in my studio forever (I guess).
    Thank you for your kinds words.
