When I paint I lose track of time. I must have been painting a lot because I just lost track of three months! Yesterday it was December 17th and I was Santa Claus at a kid’s party. Today it’s March 17th, Saint Patrick’s Day, and instead of watching the parade I am waiting in my studio for a truck which will take twenty-one of my paintings to Atlanta! Catherine Kelleghan McGee has invited me to be the first artist at her new gallery on “Gallery Row” in Buckhead, the heart of the art district in Atlanta. The truck driver just arrived and I watched him pack up the paintings. He took great care putting them into bins. As I watched them disappear they became children getting into a bus before leaving for camp. When the driver disappeared with the bins there was an empty space in my studio. I felt sad as if the silence had been filled with the voices of the paintings.

The Catherine Kelleghan Gallery is located at 309 East Paces Ferry Road in Buckhead, Atlanta. The exhibition opens April 27th and runs until June 1st. So come dear friends and invite everyone you know who lives in Atlanta to the opening reception on Friday April 27th. I look forward to seeing you and I will introduce you to Catherine, a glorious combination of Southern charm and Irish magic.
