An Evening Out...

Last night HB and I were out on the town. We went to an art reception that featured Debbie, the art instructor for our painting group. It was Debbie, her husband, Mike, and three other artists showing their work. Before I show you some of my photos from the evening I should tell you that the lighting was beautiful but not conducive for taking photos!

This is Debbie...she's such a fun person.
I just love her.

These are a few of Debbie's paintings.

I love these tigers!

Debbie teased me that this one should have been titled
Ode to Janet
because it was my influence that inspired her!

Debbie, Juanita, and Jeanette
with me and HB in the mirror.

Mike, Debbie, and George one of the artists from
our painting group.
Those are Mike's paintings in the background.

It was a lovely setting and the food was delicious.
I think everyone had a good time and we saw a lot of beautiful art.

Next time I'll share one more birthday gift with you...
actually it might be Sunday before I get the post up.
I'll be busy turning 70 tomorrow!!
