A few happy shots of progress and the fulfillment of seeing the journey in one place. What a joy.
I’m sitting in the gallery tonight after a wonderful day….
Takes shape….by Monday,
Beethoven arrived yesterday morning… a much softer, more tender version than the portrait I was attempting to copy! I prefer to see him this way instead of the usual stern depictions…
There has been a steady flow of smiling visitors
Who are enjoying the anecdotes!
and leaving a beautiful catalogue of touching comments in the exquisite visitors’ book that our local ‘Paperworks’ has put together for me. It is their paper that has such a big presence in the room.
I wheeled Sir Galahad proudly down the aisle of St. Mary’s church this afternoon… He stood quietly while I played opus 110 to a lovely audience of friends and local music lovers. He even rang his bell in all the excitement!
He is now back in the gallery looking forward to a bit more attention tomorrow!
We have also made a tidy sum for the musicians benevolent fund over these last few days, so if you are at a distance, reading this and feel you would like to add to the donations, you will find ‘ISM’ in the menu bar on the right ….
Goodnight and thanks to all of you who have come to join in one way or another. I can hardly begin to describe the deep joy and sense of satisfaction of the week so far.
