Art in the Park Day


Although the only sales I know of was from the Pottery man. It was my first 'outside'  art event  The last one was a demo thing..  What lacked in sales  today was made up in the experience and all that I learned,  too much to tell here, but from my grids being backwards, oh yes,  needing stakes in the ground,  pricing, where to get prints made, framing,  meeting so many nice people and finally realizing that yes,  maybe I am an artist? !! ..and being accepted by my peers that is the best part. 
  My art was so well received that even I  was surprised.  Just when you reach an age where you think you know everything .  Who would have thought?   
       
    As to the weather today,  it was the absolute best day of the whole year, no kidding, low 80's , under the trees, lakeside and who could ask for anything more...? 
  For sure, not me.    hugs, BJ

  10. What an exciting time you are having! Congratulations! Of course you are an Artist, so believe in your self!
    Isn't the weather odd at the moment? Last week, here in the south of the UK it was 28 degrees! The beach was full of people sunbathing in their bikinis and swim shorts! That is almost unheard of in the Autumn! :0)
