Waiting is a 12x16 pastel on PastelBord, hanging right now at my show at Genema Gallery. See my web site for info on the gallery.

Thank you, everyone who came to the show last night. Thank you for filling the room. I wish I could say that my biggest fear is that I'd have a show and nobody would show up, but I can't because it has actually happened.

Many years ago I was asked to exhibit my work. I wasn't especially proud of the body of work, so I didn't send out invitations to my usual mailing list. I assumed the gallery would send invitations to theirs. I guess they assumed the opposite. So the entire evening...I'm mortified even remembering. But I lived through it.

Now my fear is that nobody will show up at my funeral. Please come to that if you ever hear I'm having one.


  1. I really like this piece, Margaret. Makes me wonder what is going on, where they are, what are they waiting for.

    So glad everything was great last night, wish I could have been there.

  2. Great to see you here. I always love seeing your work, and you have been busy with a lot of things. Congratulations on show and keeping up. Steady on.


  3. I love the colors in this piece. Very convincing posing of the figures to convey waiting for something.

  4. very funny, xaxa, sure there will be more reasons to gather, another exhibit maybe?
