Edgewater Artists In Motion

Mike and I spent the weekend at The Edgewater Art Fair 

This is my 3rd year selling at art fairs and I have to say, its only gotten better!
So much fun seeing people that collect my work, people that admire my work even the fellow vendors.


 Heres a little 11x14 that sold on Saturday
Thank you!

I love this photo of these little shoppers

 I just realized they spelled my name wrong
 Here I am setting up the booth





Today I will be unpacking from the fair and getting the studio put back together

Yesterday I listed a ton of stuff on my Etsy account

I will also be preparing to post about a few classes that I'll be holding in my home studio

Have a great day!

A bit of this and and a bit of that

Here is my 24x24 birthday commission
Commissions can be funny when it comes to what people want.
Here she wanted a pink flower, a bit of a challenge for me, but in the end I liked it very much
I've been making art blocks to have at my last two events this year


One of my favorites


I moved my computer to the other side of the studio and decided to take a self-portrait 


Saturday the 14th I am having a gallery event in my home studio
If you are in the area and would like to attend, send me an email and I'll get the information to you

Have a great day!

Another great art fair at The Glenwood!

Because I only own a little Prius I usually rent a van for art fairs
This year I used a friends van!
She's been keeping it in my driveway since she bought a new one
How handy it was!
 I was in my usual spot on Morse

 My booth is always so colorful!


I sold several pieces
This yellow flower went to a fellow artist!
When this one sold, I felt sad for all those that have loved this one


Today I unloaded the van
vacuumed the house
and played with my attention deprived animals
Here is Mr. Cooper showing his climbing skills


Now I will spend my week finishing a commission that needs to get mailed out next week

Have a great day
