(For me) -- Tequila and Ice Fishing in Minnesota, Read on ...
Since it is really cold (and did I hear, 11 inches of snow in Alabama today???), here is something to warm you up. I'm recycling one of Nels Johnson's early posts:…

Krasl results came today.... and while I was ridiculously hopeful about being selected (and after seeing the others in my category - 3d mixed media) I received the ominous. REJECT email. I asked for my jury results - anticipating middle of the road results - and received 3 1's, 1 2, and a 6. I was devastated.
How do you recover from this? It's devastating and crushing. it make you question.. why......

"Hello RC FULWILER,
Your entry 1912.157431 ...was not juried into Art on the Square 2015. Your interest in the show is appreciated and we wish you much success with your work."
I had no idea what show this was from. Art on the Square is a common name in this business. It took quite a while to figure out it was Belville, IL. Gee thanks! I guess that's all $40 will get you these days.

It started off cool last weekend in Key West. The locals were not happy--it was a high of fricking 52 degrees on Friday. Fisherman were bundled up like Eskimos.
The rest of us loved it.
We were in the warmest place in the whole USA and we had a city…Continue

Once upon a time there was an artist who sold his paintings every weekend at art shows. He took a few pictures of his paintings, and for the few shows that required it, hung his paintings on the fence next to his house and took a “display” picture. The film was dropped off at the corner drug store where he picked up the slides three…Continue

The next time you are tempted to invest your time and money in a "filler" show, take that travel time and your $$$ and invest instead in building a website or updating your beginner site. Think of it as building your retirement.
I'm from Saugatuck, Michigan, the same town that the venerable Nels and the irrepressible Fulweiller come from. We're all down in Florida now trying to make a living. I scheduled five art fairs for my stay in Florida. Arti Gras, last week's show in Jupiter was a big success. But this week, the South Miami show was a big disappointment.
It is a small show with most booths set up back to back down the middle of 72nd Street. Booths are small... exactly 10 by 10 without any storage space…Continue

Last winter I participated in three art fairs, Naples in Cambier Park, Gasparilla in Tampa and Lake Wales. The trip was successful last year with the weakest show being Lake Wales. This year I booked five art fairs, but ran into a string of wait list invitations in the process. Ft Myers, Cambier Park (Naples), Gasparilla and Winter Park all put me on their wait list (so frustrating).
So far I haven't heard from any of them.…Continue
