Art Show

Well, I did it. I took my paintings, I set up a tent and displayed my paintings for all to see. I didn't win anything, I didn't sell anything. But, I reached my goal. I FINALLY entered the show that I have been wanting to be in FOREVER. I had too much fun!!!! I met so many artists that were just wonderful. Sales were really down this year, yet I had nothing to go by, I've never done it. But the other artists were telling me how BAD this show was for selling. I didn't care, I was there and I was happy. When the other artists got depressed about sales, they would come to me for some HAPPINESS!!!!!! :)
I had a GREAT TIME!!!!!!:)

I'm ready for the show....

My frame guy called this morning, ALL of the frames are now done. I just have to pick them up and paint them, put the canvas's in them and I am good to go!!!!!

The show is Saturday and Sunday. My spot is #96, in a good area nearest to where most people park. I have my kids and George & George's son to help me with set-up, which starts at 6am. Show starts at 10am.


I'm nervous, but I have faith that this will be a good show!!!:)

I got these done today. But I did just notice under the Mom's sleeve, the pastels are smeared....I'm thinking MY CAT!!! All I have left to do for the show is a bit of work on the Surgeon Fish. Yes, I am leaving the daughter's face like it is. I have 2 photos of her, and this is what it looks like. I realize at the show, people will look at it and thing I messed up....but I don't want to change the way she looks. SO THERE!:)

Next pic down.....

This stupid thing wouldn't let me add more type, just another next pic down....

OK, the first image is the LAST one. I obviously need to put it down, do NOT look at it again til tomorrow. There's just too much going wrong with the whole thing. BUT, the good thing about that is that it is ME doing it and I WILL get it RIGHT!!!!! Just thought I'd show that I'm doing something..... ALSO, the little girl has something wrong with her face, and I'm not catching that right. I have 2 pics of her, and both show the same thing.....I'll get it right tho...JUST NOT TODAY!!!!! I REFUSE TO LOOK AT IT AGAIN TODAY!!!!
And the more I look at it, the worse it looks!!! SO NOT GOOD!!!!
YEP, I keep looking at it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mother & Daughter from Haiti

So, here's the mother and daughter...Mom is NOT done...I need to do some work on her face still. I've started the daughter...obviously. It appears that the father may be the Amego Man!!!LOL I don't think I spelled that right. But, hopefully yall remember the movie!! I will be getting detail into the daughter's face today. Just waiting for Puppy Naptime!!!:)

Just another one for my show!!:)
