Sophia Arts Fall Show and Sale

This past weekend, I showed my paintings at the Sophia Arts Fall Show, along with 5 other artists: Eden Thompson, Malcolm Glover, Jean-mattis Bourgault, Evelyn Caro, Ken Parry, and Knicki Markolf. It was a blast!

I was getting a little down by the last hour of the second day, when I still hadn’t sold any paintings, and then, BAM! Sold three. Thank you Aaron and Ashley! These ones are on their way (or are making their way) to new homes:

Thank you to everyone who came out and showed their support!

The Waldorf Faire

Whew! What an exhausting weekend! It is hard work to stay all smiles, and talk to people for 7 hours straight (after a day of setting up), especially for an introvert! I was pretty wiped about 2 hours in, but hopefully it wasn’t too obvious.

The day went well, although there are things I will change for next year, for sure. I sold all ten copies of Journal It!, one painting, and lots of cards, pins and magnets. I would love to sell more paintings, but I think my display needs to be more open, more accessible, so people can step right up to the art. Half the time, I didn’t think people noticed the paintings behind me, because of all the things I had to look at on the table! All in all, it was a fun day, and I was happy with it.

I was very happy to sell this painting to Denise. Thank you, Denise!

My friend Yvonne and her felting-partner had a beautiful table with lots of little hand-felted critters, with skating ponds, an igloo, trees, the works. It was stunning.

I still have plenty of magnets, paintings, and cards available. I also painted a mirror and a lazy Susan, both of which I love. I may decide to keep the mirror, but for now, it is available and perfect for the young girl in your life!


Tea Party Time!

Yay! My art is on labels for tea tins at the Naked Leaf tea shop in Kensington. They are really cute! The tea is awesome, too. I had loads of fun chatting with Jonathan at the shop last week. Naked Leaf and the Resolution Art Gallery are teaming up again to put on the “Tea Party”, an exhibit featuring the artists who have their art on the tea tins. I will have three paintings in the show!

I am not going to be able to make the opening, so if you can go, tell them I sent you!
