My home art show was a success by any standards... over 65 adults (and many teens/children) in attendance over the 2 days, 25 paintings sold, calendars, photos, cards, gift tags sold ( not sure how many in total yet) and 3 commissions secured. As well, I have several adults and parents of children interested in lessons or workshops, so will be following up on those in a couple of weeks.

Andy Wilson!!!

And now I am going to take a few days to unwind, relax, and enjoy a rest. 

I could not have done the show without the help of my husband, my daughter-in-law, my daughter, and my son, and I want to thank them for all the time and effort they put into these past 2 days. As well, I say a big thank you to my administrative assistant, Janet, who helped me prepare for the show this year. You are all such a great team to work with!

Thanks to all those who attended my show as well as those of you in far away cities who ordered calendars or bought paintings. It is because of your support that I keep on this creative path which I enjoy so much...

For all of you who are artists, and would like to learn my secrets for a successful home art show, watch for my new e-book on the strategies and step-by-step directions to holding your very own home show, coming in December.
