Rhonda Smith

Last night I went to the opening of an exhibition by Rhonda Smith at
the House for an Art Lover in Glasgow.
I've been to many exhibitions there but this is the finest I have seen so far. If you are in Glasgow then do make the effort. It's a great place for lunch, coffee and a snack or just a look around. Rhonda's paintings are really really good. Hopefully I can get some images to show you
in a day or two.
