Show News

I'd promised  to tell you about the show I did during the month of April.  It closed on Friday and I didn't sell anything.  That was a disappointment, of course, but I'll live!

It was the first show for this venue but they intend to showcase a new artist every month.  I was told that my art drew a lot of positive comments and I was asked to leave four of the most popular paintings to fill out spaces that the incoming artist wasn't able to fill.  I thought that was very nice of them. 

I'm also still working on my studio.  I'd like to get rid of the huge table that takes up so much room and replace it with a smaller work center but my husband made the table for me and I don't want to make him feel bad.  I did finish painting the old desk extension that will hold my paper cabinet though.  I did a really good job if I do say so myself!  lol  I even put a large shelf under it for additional storage.  Now I have to figure out how to arrange the studio to accommodate all this wonderful new storage!

Posting here will be very hit or miss as spring starts our garden season and there are just a lot of things happening at this time of the year.  Just bear with me!

Sorry to hear you didn't make any sales Jan but the good thing is that some of your work will stay.
i hope the newly painted desk and the new storage fit into your studio. I am sure it will all look great.

Enjoy the spring time and your garden Jan..There is always the winter for painting when it's too cold to venture outdoors.

Looking forward to meeting you later in the year.

Thanks, Dors. I'm looking forward to seeing you later also.

BTW - I got the storage units into the studio - not where I wanted but at least they're in and I can get back into organization.

Hi Jan,

Sorry no sales... but it sounds like you got some valuable exposure... and you never know.. might lead to a sale down the road.

Give yourself a pat on the back for having the courage to enter :-)
