First show ever

Local art show at library in their parking lot.

What is your website?


Best show ever and why

Montrose art walk, so far. I have only done about 5 shows and only three since I switched from photography to painting a couple of years ago. This is an art walk along the sidewalks and I set up and paint all day. I am slowly building inventory and this has been a great show for a newbie like me.

Worst show ever and why

Millionaires Row, first outdoor show I did. Only sold one piece, this was the first year the had this event and hardly anyone showed up. No traffic.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I love clowns. But not the creepy ones! :)
