Recovering After girlShow 2010

WOW ...I'm always amazed at the amount of energy it takes to do a show and how much rest is needed afterwards.  This years girlShow was a 2 night affair with different artists and lineups each night.  On Friday night I assisted with entrance fees at the front door for most of the night and then participated as an artist on Saturday (7/10).  I was able to get my table set up next to a wall in a fair amount of time and think that there was less pre show/set up stress than I'm used to.  A dear art buddy, Curtis Fesser, was my helper for the evening and he graciously assisted me with carrying everything in, watched the table when I would take a break and helped with the tear down, so I'm pretty sure that's the reason I was less anxious.  Thank you Curtis!!  : )    I enjoyed seeing all my creative sisters doing their thing, listening to some good music and selling a few paintings.  To recouperate today, I met for lunch with some friends from church and will be taking it easy

Today & Beyond

Today, I'm recouperating from the Art Where You Live show at Chase Oaks Church last night. Justin Nygren was our producer and we had a great time with a pretty good turnout. I'm very thankful to be asked to be a part of the event and having the opportunity to show my work and get a little bit more experience under my art hat. I sold 3 small paintings out of the Thorns & Thistles series, so I'm very happy about that too! What's coming up next? I'll be creating live and displaying art work on July 10th at the Art Love Magic girlShow .

5/07/10 Update

I will be producing Art Love Magic’s Art & Coffee at It’s A Grind in Deep Ellum tonight, so a lot of my time and focus has been directed towards that this week. I have had some time to paint here and there, but I probably won’t have photos to share until Sunday evening. This is such an exciting season for me both spiritually and artistically. I’ve been blessed with a lot zeal and growth in each area. The result is that I have many ideas for the surrealistically styled-religious themed landscapes, so I’m eager to get started on what will be my primary focus this summer. Woohoo!!!! Upcoming Shows: I will be at Lakewood Stock on 5/16 from 12-8pm and the Cedar Springs Rd Sidewalk Sale on 5/22 from 10am-5pm. On 5/16, I’ll be sharing a booth with Scott Dorn & Essie Graham. On 5/22, I’ll be sharing a larger booth with Scott, Essie, and Glenda Williams. (You can see their work by visiting their link under the Cool Websites on the right side of the blog.) If you’re able, please sto

Deep Ellum Art Festival

Last weekend, 4/02-4/04, I participated in my first major art festival...The Deep Ellum Art Fest. When I was invited to share a booth with Essie Graham and Scott Dorn , I jumped at the chance not knowing what to expect. It's been a week since the fest, so I thought now would be a good time to record my thoughts. First of all, it was A LOT OF WORK just getting ready prior to the Fest...making sure I had all of my info packs ready, paintings photographed, and all the knick knacks packed that we might need. The day of set up was exhausting. We lovingly referred to our booth as the Ghetto Booth because this was our first time to do a big show like this and our funds were low...we could only afford the bare essentials. Humble beginnings are great because it leaves so much room for future growth and expansion...exciting times!!! It wasn't until noonish on the 2nd day that I really started to enjoy the event and from there things just got better and better as my setup exhaustion fro
