What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
We have not really done one yet...just a few local unjuried arts & craft fair type thing- where meeting all the other artists is the most fun, and we end up spending more money on art than making money on our art!
Best show ever and why
...will soon come...we will be discovered; :D
Worst show ever and why
will never happen;...these local "fairs we have done' should suffice for the penance
Who referred you to Please be specific.

Hi Claudia and Sergio,  


Certainly hope you and your home survived Irene.  What a time it must have been for you!  My daughter and her family were anticipating the full blast in Brooklyn.  As it turned out many trees are down in her neighborhood park where last winter a tornado took down around thirty of them.  So she was sad to see more go but compared to what might have been, her area is wet but safe.


I wish you both well!



PS  Yes, the paintings are from layered glazes on clay fired and then scanned and altered in the computer where they are then printed out very very large!
