"A Nice Weekend"
Well, here it is, my booth for the show.
Doing a show like this is tough. You put yourself under deadline to create all of the work, organize everything to set up your booth, lug it all down to the show and spend a lot of time setting up everything to make it look "just right." By the time the show starts, you are just plain exhausted. BUT! Then you start seeing old friends from past shows, meet up with collectors who have your artwork, and get to know lots of nice people who just have to purchase a painting for their home. I think as artists we are so used to burrowing in our studios creating art that we need timely shows to get us out into the real world. To all of you who came out, it was great to see you!
I had a wonderful time and sold 27 paintings ranging in size from 5"x5" to 40"x 40".
My next show will be Saturday, July 14, at Weems Gallery in Albuquerque, NM. This is a one day show only with several other artists and we create lots of work for the amazing price of $285 or less. I won't be in attendance (going to Taos, NM),but people start lining up at about 6 or 7am to be first in the door. It is so fun! If you need more info, email me.
I have commissions to finish up and I will be taking off the month of August to gear up for painting for the big show here in Albuquerque (Artfest) in November.
Tomorrow I will clean my studio (again) and I will have a new daily painting for you tomorrow night!
