Talent, and the variety of art, and meeting new people!
Best show ever and why
Octagon Art Fair was my first Juried Art Fair, felt honored to have been able to enter and get in, stiff competition!
Worst show ever and why
Arts Weekend Studio Tour (Oct 2002) - we who didn't have open studios were put into the hallways of an old mill. Terrible lighting and didn't sell anything.

Art Fair Disaster

Posted on November 16, 2009 at 11:31am 0 Comments

The Sun City Artists Art Fair (in Peoria Az) this last Friday and Saturday was a huge loss.

Little traffic, poor lighting, and almost no sales. I personally only sold 4 greeting cards and didn't even cover my table entry. But I did better than some others who sold nothing at all! Many commented on how nice my display looked and how good my work is, but we were there to sell not show, so I took their comments as a positive but felt really down when I didn't sell larger… Continue

Thank you, that is a photo taken on the last day at my parents cottage, before they moved to a smaller home. Our family spent many a happy day on that dock, staring at that beautiful lake, so that photo always makes me happy!

What wonderful memories you can treasure Diane and it's so good that you took that photo, what a beautiful place. We also used to live on a small lake before our 4 girls left home..and we also I can so relate!

Have a great week!

Ah, the Catzzz! Yes, favorites of mine, since I can't have any ---the other member of the household doesn't like them! I enjoy painting and drawing my sons 'kid' (Yoda is a beautiful Himalayan with all the pep and ginger that my beloved Siamese had!). Of course my Golden Retriever uses most of my spare time and accompanies me on my nature walks where he poses with pleasure!
