So.  Did you notice that we missed the ENTIRE month of June with our blog posts?  Things were crazy around here.  Truly crazy.  It wasn't the best June we have ever had, but it is up in the top three or four.  And to cap it off, we hosted an artist's reception for Louise Lamontagne on Friday night, the 29th.  We had a blast!  It was Last Fridays, so our entire block was hopping and loads of people came in.  At one point we were literally wall-to-wall people.  Josh up at Culinary Design Studio did an awesome job catering, we had an entire boat full of bubbly, and we sold six of Louise's paintings.  We were too busy to take a bunch of pictures, but here are a few:

 The booze boat!  We went through a lot of bubbly....

 We painted our door and trim "Louise colors" just for the event!  HA!

 Including the two in the window, we had 25 of Louise's paintings exhibited.

 "Renewal," the signature piece for the show, hangs beautifully on our blue wall.

Maggie and Al came to meet Louise and tell her some crazy story about Al's longtime friend having just married one of Louise's old roommates.  It's a small world!

Three of the Frame of Reference artists - Tabby Ivy, Jeanette Rehahn and Louise Lamontagne.  And that's Louise's husband Tom in the background.

What a great way to end the month.  Thank you Louise!
