To choose a winner for my painting I decided to just count the number of new subscribers, then write as many numbers on slips of paper, put them in a bowl, and pick one. The chosen number was 29; the winner was the 29th person who subscribed after the drawing was announced. That turned out to be Maureen from Holden, MA. Congratulations and thank you!
Also, I was in Manhattan for a few days and saw the "American Scene" show at the Met. Excellent show- a lot of paintings, many I had never seen before. It ends Jan. 24, so go if you've been thinking about it.
