A year ago, May 16th, 2014.

I started a diary, in a little notebook with a picture of “El Baño del Caballo”/ “The Bath of the Horse”, de Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida,  one of my favourite painters ever.

Joaquin Sorolla , spanish painter, " The Bath of the Horse"
In the first page of the notebook, with my terrible handwriting, I wrote the quote that illustrates this post, in Spanish: “Cada creacion es una victoria sobre el miedo”.

In the beginnings, my Ver Art Gallery diary
My first post was all about the excitement of receiving our first two pictures on May 8th, 2014. Many exciting moments came after that, and will keep coming.

My first post, May 16, 2014
A year after, May 3rd, 2015, a lot earlier than I planned, we hosted our first Open House.

Every project starts with an idea, and as  physicist Linus Pauling says, “To have a good idea, you need to have many ideas”.

Then you need to start dreaming, and find the best team. The Dream Team.

Alba Gamboa,  Software Engineer, Web Developer; Leonor, me, unstoppable  dreamer; Leo Perez ( my daughter), Graphic Designer, curator; Sancho, mascot.
Santiago ( my son), Business Manager; Meen ( my husband), Carpentry and Framing director,  Official translator English - English, copywriter and owner; Sancho, Mascot; Carlos, Financial Advisor

Meen and Leonor, Ver art Gallery Owners
The rest is love.

Special thanks to my friend Regina. She lighted a corner of the Gallery with her hand painted beautiful Taparas.

And Juan Pablo Gonzalez Amaya, talented young Venezuelan artist with a strong, passionate approach and social content. (I owe him a post )

Also, special thanks to Maria Eugenia Otero, my “socia”. She is my eyes and spiritual artistic presence, in Venezuela.  A keen eye for art and a generous soul: that is her. Thank you for all your support.

Finally, the Open House day arrived.
I was much stressed, and as always, full of fears.

The soft voice of creation always saves me. For sure, every creation is a victory over fear…

After a couple of Champagne’s glasses, I finally relaxed and even gave a Thank You speech.

Thank you!

The dream has just started.


Thanks to all!
