Because several of you asked if I had taken pictures of my show, I decided to put up the ones I took of my setup. Once people started coming, even though I had my camera out, there was just no time where I could snap pictures. Next time I'll have a designated camera person!
Most of the 6" x 6" paintings, the cards, and framed display of the limited edition prints were in the kitchen area, with a couple of paintings on the wall.
Although it doesn't look all that large, the living room area held 20 paintings on the walls, easels and on top of the buffet and coffee table. (And yes - my walls are a gorgeous blue!)
A couple of hours before the show, my husband was finishing up the framing of the last limited edition prints in the studio.
This display centre had 6 surfaces with paintings on them, hung with "s" hooks. It was fantastic for displaying a lot of paintings in a limited amount of space. People could walk all the way around this display.
People wanted to see where in the studio I paint, so my work space was cleaned up and tidy for a change! Won't stay that way for long I am sure.
So now that I am on the other side of my first solo show, I know that I will definitely do this again - the same weekend next year. For those of you who plan a long time ahead, you can mark it on your calendars!!!
This afternoon I will be starting on one of the 2 commissions I received in order to complete them before Christmas. And on the 3rd of December, I have a Christmas fair that I am a part of. Between now and then, I want to get my house decorated for Christmas. So... I will be a busy but contented artist. I love this life!
