I really enjoy meeting my customers face to face and seeing their reaction to me art. Art fairs are fabulous for meeting new collectors and they don't take a commission so you have the opportunity to make more money per piece.
Best show ever and why
Alpharetta Streetfest 2008 I won the Spirit of the Show award, was interviewed for the local paper, the show used my Spirit of Equus painting on all of their t-shirts, and a customer purchased two large original paintings from me. It was the most profitable show ever :-)
Worst show ever and why
Let's just focus on the positive...so we get more good stuff in our lives ;-)
