In early December I was in the Affordable Artists Show. This is my booth with
my paintings.

Looks great.  Are each of the paintings in the art section of the forum?  I would like to see closeups.

Thank you myeuropeantouch and trusk4u.

trusk4u--The artists did not get as many customers as possible.  It started off with bad weather and not enough advertising for the event.

Failings in so many shows!  I've stopped doing pay-per-face face painting at fairs for that reason.  Too much crappy weather, extreme temps, or event organizers who didn't know how to market.

Amen...that is why I quit doing shows.  I may try again someday, but for now, it just isn't worth counting on promoters to bring in customers and the weather to cooperate.

I know promotion and advertising are important.  If the people don't know about it---then what happens to us artists.  I worked hard on preparing.  It was held for two days. You should have seen all the artists staring each time the door opened.
People that did come---told me nice things about my work.  Okay it was an experience.  Funny how people say---don't sell online ---do shows---so the public can see your work.  I don't think they fully understand all it takes.
This show was geared toward fine art---would not allow jewelry or certain crafts. ::)

Someone wanted to see a close-up of my paintings from the art show.
Here is one of Queen Nef which I just had in another show--Members Show March 2015.
