The painting (cont)

I'm finally standing with the finished painting at the opening of the exhibition at the Alette Wessels Kunskamer in Pretoria.

Landscapes: a Colourful Palette

At last! We had he opening of the exhibition on the 8th of May. What an experience. With a record breaking 160 guests in attendance, Lynette ten Krooden opened the exhibition.
My thanks to Pieter, for allowing me the chance to prove myself, my DH Johan for allowing me the space to create, Ethelda, for all the teaching, fabric and support, Elize van Biljon for her honest opinion, good common sense and emotional support and all the other quilting friends I met along the way, giving tips, tricks and encouragement. Quilting does not have to stand back one inch in the world of art!
