How to make a tired artist:
Take two shows back to back. Add one large commission. Throw in a dash of paperwork (entries) and tear down of another show. Simmer with familial and social obligations. Stir with 3rd show 5 days from now.
Seriously, all is good here. I finished the commission in time for the Father's Day mailing deadline. It is great if I do say so myself. When the light is better I will snap a picture.
The show was fine. Not fabulous as past years at CWE, just fine. I did talk to lots of people about commissions, so there could be additional sales down the road. We had a brief period of rain today but luckily got the tent dried out before we had to pack up.
I was invited to participate in an upscale holiday boutique here in the St. Louis area. I'll furnish more specific details later, but I was thrilled for the opportunity.
And.......drum roll please......I am officially accepted into the St. Louis Art Fair. Woo hoo, how cool is that!! Apparently someone cancelled, so I am IN! Which is way cool as now I know well in advance rather than having to wait until the last minute. Very very nice indeed.
