The final line-up in Yuma.

Jeni Bate Solo show at Yuma Fine Arts CenterI got to the Yuma Fine Arts gallery about an hour and a half before the reception.  I needed to repair one of the paintings which had a scuff from being loaded into or out of the truck – that wasn’t a big job, so it only took about 30 mins.

(And not having time to take photos to show that it was busy!)  We sold about four books and one painting.  Martha, the gallerist, noted that usually the larger purchase come after people have slept on the decision.
