I was just wondering about you and getting ready to ask.  Sorry it was just okay. It's so exhausting being that animated all day when talking to people, isn't it?

Look forward to hearing more and seeing your pics tomorrow.

Sleep well.

I'm anxious to hear about your show -- we have a number of the plein air demos/shows here.  I don't paint, so I can't participate, but it seems like a great venue and awesome avenue for future sales.  Are you able to give out cards or show other work (or even SELL?)?

I'll take ok over a nightmare any day. A couple years ago we did 20 shows, last year I think 4, this year we are only doing 2.
The economy is so bad out there people just are not spending money like they used to. So ok is good!

Andrew you really hit it on the head, ok is good in this economy:) I am sorry you thought I was disappointed, I was very tired.
I had a very good spot and probably the best sales of any artist except the 2 guys making wonderful bottle art, like tiny tables that you poke in the ground & they stand, and bottle trees:) They sold a lot more than me.

I took a variety of art work and my paintings were a success, but taking prints was a right move. People loved my art, which pleased me but money is tight.

I did 3 canvases, I will get pics of those later, I love what came to me to paint:)

Thanks Monika & Larissa:) It was perfect in the weather, the friendly crowd, enough sales to feel justified in going, and I found I like demonstrating my painting. The next time I get that opportunity I will not hesitate.

Prints are almost always a good thing - even though your original art isn't high dollar, prints do allow people with little "disposable" income be able to buy something - benefits you and them!
Sorry it was just ok.

Hey Nancy sounds like a good day:) You're set up looks so great! I wanted to ask you about painting while at the shows...I've thought about bringing stuff to do that as well but am always worried that it will distract from the sales somehow...lots of people watching but not wanting to interrupt what I'm doing to ask questions about other pieces for sale...Did you have someone else selling while you were demo-ing?

LOL, Beverly!  It's frustrating, isn't it.  I am great at spelling and better than average with grammar, yet on-line I make those same mistakes over and over again.  It is frustrating.  I still think it's because our fingers are getting just a wee bit ahead of our brains when communicating this way.
