September 28- October 31: Images by Susan Sheets at the Daily Review Cafe

  • Susan is a wonderful artist and wonderful person. My husband (this is Viula, by the way) grew up with her son and we own 3 of her paintings and love, love, love them. I am so excited to be able to get her some more exposure. Her work is truly amazing! Have a chicken pot pie at DRC while you're there :)

And I am going to sneak a little more personal business in here and wish my very wonderful husband a very Happy Birthday!
