I thought you'd like to know that I
took a booth at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show and extended
my hand to every single person who stepped into my booth - and there
many - and introduced myself just as you suggested.
As the days went on (4) I kept thinking of your advice and how it

to an opening at Maple
Main Gallery in Chester, CT, to
buy my paintings. They did! I
