Personally, I had an amazing weekend. I met and saw so many people who love my work ... and who had a difficult time figuring out which ones they liked best. Many purchased work ... and here's my rundown of work that's found some happy new homes this weekend:
|"Give Me A Kiss"|
"Elgin Marble": a graphite drawing done in the British Museum of a horse's head from the Parthenon
"Give Me A Kiss": the frog beanie baby went to a volunteer at the Great Falls Library where I've held several solo shows. She bought this on Saturday.
"Who Goes There?": the mouse beanie baby afraid of its own shadow went to the same purchaser as "Give Me A Kiss" -- just one day later.
"White Peonies" went home with one of my 100 Faces and her husband
"Sprinkles and Dots Cupcake" went home with another one of my 100 Faces, friend, fellow artist and enthusiastic collector
|"Who Goes There?"|
Pretty exciting, rewarding, cool day. Thank you to everyone who came, talked, shared, listened and shopped this weekend.
This week's a bit nuts ... but it should make for some good blog posts.
Time for bed.
