  • Thank you so much for the positive comments. It means so much to all of the staff and I will forward to them.  Once I figure out I am going to add to your post.  Show was a challenge but with the help of all the artists and community we got it pulled off. 

  • Elle..... Dont let it bother you.  On my last two day show I sold $1,500 on Saturday.   On Sunday I had one $89 painting sale.  I had tons of compliments  however and many said my booth was their favorite.  What happened?  I dont know.   You can even have great and terrible in one show.
