First, let me apologize for taking soooo long to post this blog! I am currently having a love/hate relationship with my laptop, network, camera and basically anything electronic! LOL But here are finally some great photos and some wonderful memories of our (Blake's and my) very first Society of Decorative Painting National Convention. Here is a picture of some of the team that was at the convention: l-r Paul Seymour, Cathy Seymour, me, Hazel Anthony, Martha Jansen, Dave Jansen, Jessica Jansen, Dave Parmer, Bobbie, Koelsch and my hubby Blake (who was standing next to my new sister-wife Bobbie! LOL)
Blake was so funny all week, he just kept me intact and sane amongst the chaos...it got to the point that he was my 'purse' and he was totally ok with that...as a matter of fact he actually said "I go with everything." LOL, so maybe Bobbie just had 'purse envy'....so I leant her mine!
Here's a shot of the young married couple who celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary while we were there!
The sales team! Martha, Dave and Jessica!
Why, it's a global palette Vanna, brought to you by Global Art Supply! Your's for only $24.95.
In the very blurry background is Hazel carrying the Australian flag to the general meeting of the SDP. That was a real honour for Hazel. There were 14 countries represented at this year's convention and over 1000 registered attendees.
Dave hanging some paintings.
We had an amazing time and met some really great people. If I try to name them all I know I'll fail but meeting Marsha McDowell, David Vernon and Mark, Julie King and so many others was such a joy.
I know that I'll always treasure my memories of this week and I really can't wait to go again next year to Wichita Kansas!
