I've been reading reviews and comments about both ArtiGras and Coconut Grove. I'm disappointed by what I am reading because at one time South Florida was the premier place to sell your work in February and March. So, I started thinking about it and all the things that made Coconut Grove great started coming back to me. Here it is:
I have an emotional attachment to the Coconut Grove…Continue

Well, the truck has been unloaded, the bills have been tallied, and the verdict is in on our first time participating in the St. Stephens Art and Craft Festival in Coconut Grove. It has taken us two days to drive home so I have had a lot of time to reflect on our experience. Fair warning, this post will be long as I want to give detailed information for anyone thinking about doing this show. First, I want to say that this show is run by the nicest group of people you would ever want to…Continue
I know that writing this post will create problems for me but I need express.
I just came back from Arti Gras, (Jupiter, Florida). Last year I did this show follow by South Miami but this year South Miami was canceled. I still decide to make the trip since the cancellation of the show happen after I paid Arti Gras. The trip from Chicago to Florida is long but easy.
I won't talk about the sales because I know year to year the sales…Continue

Arti Gras was our 3rd art fair of the winter season for Marcia and I. This is also the third time we have exhibited at this show. The good news? We had a good show. We sold well and even won an award. The bad news? Most artists did not do well.
I am a digital artist. I create surrealistic images with environmental themes using humor and fantasy in the mix. My lowest price point is $28 for small, unframed limited edition prints. I sell a ton of these. My highest prince point id $695…Continue
As an oil painter, realism landscapes, I had moved to SW Florida and just started to do these winter shows, Naples, Estero, Bonita Springs, Sarasota. Had some success my first year and last year was on my way to success. What has happened this season? Almost all the oil painters have done just awful, barely any sales whatsoever for us. I've seen other more decorative art being sold as well as sculptures. Sure looks like our Fine Art Market has disappeared here.
Anybody have any idea…Continue

Hey everyone! I've recently started using my art for "good" and have created a children's book titled "What Makes You Special?" featuring my original paintings as illustrations and my original story.
It all started last fall when I created a painting of a narwhal. My…Continue

From my mailbox:
Hi Connie and all my friends,
It has been a long time since I have been in contact, much water has flowed under the bridge and my situation has changed.
I am now 73 and had my 4th and most serious back surgery a couple of years ago with fused vertebra and metal rods inserted. (Have so much metal in my back that I…Continue
