To say the opening of Fairyland last Saturday went well would be an understatement. Frankly the support and good feelings expressed towards this work has left me in a dazed state. I have cloistered myself in the studio for so long that to finally emerge and meet such warmth and kindness, well, I feel a bit blinded by the light.
All I can say is thank you, thank you to the friends, familiar and newly made and to my family who trekked cross country to attend my opening and brought such tidings of good will. I am deeply moved.
For those unable to attend I am having the work documented by several very talented photographers and a book is scheduled for publication. But before that time, there is this wonderful video which was made (and made me a nervous wreck as I am very camera shy).
I was also delighted to receive word that the magazine Hi-Fructose had published a favorable review of the exhibition, that certainly made my day!
Presently much to be grateful for, I am officially on a bit of a holiday, a respite I suppose, precious time with my sisters and then a weekend gateway with my husband David who turns 50 in a very few days, and then …back to work.
I do want to express a great deal of gratitude to my friend Kristine Schomaker of Shoebox PR who handled the publicity of Fairyland. The diligence and hard work of Kristine and her excellent staff has been instrumental in pulling this darn thing off. Thank you my friend.
I’m going to close with a few Shoebox PR snapshots that I especially like.

More images will be posted, but for now, good night.

Congratulations Leonard! The show looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing the video as I am unfortunately unable to see the exhibition in person, living on the other side of the Pond 🙂 P.S. You have a lovely family! Enjoy your holiday, well deserved holiday.
Thank you for that. It was a happy evening.
I loved seeing the video of your show. Seeing all the sculptures and paintings together conveyed great emotion. Inspiring work! Congratulations once again.
