What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Getting to know other artists and meet face to face with collectors. Making connections is what it's all about.

Best show ever and why

My first show which was the beginning year of the current housing downturn. 2014, things are starting to look up. I just sold a painting at a small gallery show in spite of low attendance.

Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.

Debby Wilson, my daughter.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I actually believe my motto on my website which is: "What a Wonderful World". It's all in one's perception. Of course there are many evil things going on but I don't have to dwell on those things, especially if I can't change them.

  • I made three panels, 35" wide, using 2-by wood trimmed to 1" on one side to match the 1" foam, attaching the cross pieces together with long deck screws. I chose the heavier carpet for a cover when I was advised that the adhesive would bleed through the lighter carpet, although it makes the corners impossible to crease neatly. The panels had to be no longer than the bed of the truck which is 76" long. So I left the top flush and extended the legs 4". My challenge now is to glue the carpet on, covering the edges with a nice crease and figuring out extensions on the top to secure them together and set up lights, like the ProPanel arrangement. I decided on drilling holes for 1/2" conduit which I could cut to various lengths and insert into the holes without fancy connections. I am still left with the adjustable rod issue to brace them. This is covered in your book which is lost in my computer. Please send me the file name so I can retrieve it. Is the adhesive sold at Home Depot the best way to glue down carpet?
