New Pieces and Winnsboro Art Fair…..How did it go?


Well we just returned from Winnsboro Fine Arts Festival where the artists were treated like kings and queens.  The sales weren’t the best but the atmosphere and hospitality couldn’t be beat!  We sold two pieces and had two galleries ask for pieces to be hung in their spaces with commissions but we have another show in two weeks and just didn’t have the inventory but it was quite the compliment!  I did a demo for the show which you can see below.  I’ve gotten so used to working in large spaces that working on a small canvas just about killed me so I had to carry it over to another canvas and now I’m on the third…so a simple demo turned into a series…..I’m never simple I guess.

I’ve also completed a new piece that I was able to show that really caught one of the judges eyes.  He said he loved it and it was his favorite….and yet I didn’t win any awards….I guess he was out-voted! 🙂  But I’m very happy with the piece and the new direction my work is taking with some new techniques I’ve found from extensive reading.  It’s really changing the way I work and I’m loving it.  I hope you do too.

New Work

Well, the last pic is our booth and I hope this post has made you feel like you were there with us in Winnsboro even if you couldn’t make it to see us.  I hope to see you soon, we’re at the Peddler’s show in Arlington at the Arlington Convention Center November 18-20.  Hope to see you there!!

As always, Peace and Light, don’t forget to comment or contact me, tweet or facebook.  I would love to hear from you!

First Outdoor Art Show

Well our first outdoor show and it was a great experience overall….the 50,000 crowd they promised was more like 5000 and I only sold three prints, but the guy next to me said he’s been doing this 25 years and it just wasn’t a good show.  He only sold one hand bag and a dress (to me!!)  All the artists were AMAZING, the setup was intense but the day was lovely and my husband and I truly enjoyed ourselves and thought….we could do this for the rest of our lives…but the end of the evening came with the first rain TX has seen in MONTHS leaving us rapidly pulling down the tent and art and rushing with the help of the other artists…like I said they were AWESOME….to cover my work and load the truck.  So although the ending was not one of fairy tales, our hearts are not changed.  We loved it and plan to do many many more.  And that’s what it’s all about anyway….the sales are nice but doing something that I love along side my husband….that you just can’t beat!!!
