Black Swamp Arts Festival

Posted on September 13, 2015 at 9:30pm 7 Comments

Well gang, this was my first year doing Black Swamp Arts Festival in Bowling Green. Ohio. First year with a Honorable Mention Ribbon. But my sales were though the roof. I didn't know how this fair would went. But my sales total was $3397.50. Not bad for a two day art festival. I really like this fair. People were always within my booth. So many art fair patrons visited my booth. I am really amazed my time was invested into this show so heavily. Bringing in 155 5x7s and another 45…


Rejected by Crosby Festival of the Arts

Posted on June 26, 2015 at 11:41pm 14 Comments

So I was rejected this year by the Crosby Festival of the Arts. I don't know why. But that's the fate we are in. So, I'm here in La Porte, Indiana getting ready for Artigras! in New Buffalo, Michigan. My tent is up. So this is a new fair for me. So I'm am getting excited to be on new turf. This means my work will be judged by a new set of people. Yes, I will apply to Crosby next year. But this is the hand that was given to me. 2013 was my very first ribbon from Crosby. So I'm excited…


Maple and Main 2015

So, Maple and Main Art Fair in Sylvania, Ohio was a tale of two different days; May 30 and 31. With this being my fourth time in the show, I had my highest sales of any of the four years. Saturday was nice and dry and I hit $1000 on that day. Sunday was mostly rainy and I just go up to $70. The volunteers there are great! They handed us water, baked goods, bananas and gave us restroom breaks. I happy to do Maple and Main for I used to live in Sylvania, Ohio back in the day. Here is a…


My latest round of rejections

Posted on March 27, 2015 at 9:17pm 16 Comments

After having a banner year last year, I'm receiving a lot more rejections this year. I don't know what has changed? I was rejected for South University Art Fair, Crosby Festival of the Arts and now tonight Arts and Apples. It makes me wonder about my other applications. Will those be okay or will I see more rejections? I guess I am in a down year. Which I did not anticipate...
