I am smiling because my brother and Becky came out to visit me, not because of the amazing sales I made at last weekend's art fair. I sold a grand total of 0 paintings. I guess that's not entirely true. My art dealer, Beth, sold one to a friend of hers after she sent pictures out via facebook. It turned out that this fair was more for people interested in purchasing "monkey butt" scented candles (I'm not joking, I saw them) and chicken on a stick. There were a couple of other people selling artwork, but mostly of the unicorn variety. I like unicorns as well as the next guy, I'm not complaining. Just pointing out that overall this crowd had different taste than what I offered at my booth. And that's cool. It was a great experience overall.
A special shout out of thanks to Beth and my mama! They helped me all day and took all these pictures.
I love my flower basket so much, I brought it with me from home. I brought two in fact!
The only inquiry we had about the custom portraits I offered was, "So that's $2.00 per portrait?" My friend and roadie/dealer Beth said, "No, I'm afraid that says $200. But it includes matting and framing." The lady said "OH! So this stuff is real?" I'm not sure what that means, but I'll just take it as a compliment.
A devoted crew, Mom, Beth and I. It was a really fun day all in all. It was great hanging out all day with people I love being around. Oh, and we got to hear "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Freebird" performed twice! : )
I'm slowly adding paintings to my Etsy shop. You can visit that
