Art show

I had so much fun participating in the Art Effects Show recently.  So much fun I forgot to take photos of many of the pieces that found new homes at the show.  I thought I had them stored on my computer.  Whoops~!  I had sold several pieces before I even thought to take photos of my booth. All that said I'm posting a couple of photos I did find.  

Before I post them, I want to say a special thank you to Ellen Calvin at Loblolly's on Walker street here in Columbia for helping me load my car after the show.  I was rushing to be at my grand daughter's 13th birthday party about an hour from my home.  Thanks to Ellen's help, I made it~!

I hope you notice the red dots (which stand for a sold item).  I ran out of red ones and had to use green instead.  Soooo much fun that weekend~!  I met a lot of women who also desire to paint.  Hopefully if you're in my classes, you'll get a chance to meet many of them.   You're my favorite kind of women to hang with.  Women who invite creativity into their lives and homes.

We made the paper~!

Okay...we didn't make it to the cover of the Rolling Stone (as the song goes) but I sure was thrilled when Karen Spivey sent me this news clipping.  I didn't realize Margaret Campbell was writing it.  Thank you so much. 
The real credit goes to Karen and all of you awesome artists who have been such a huge part in supporting your local library with your painting.  You women are amazing~! too.

Art Effects Show Reminder

While tomorrow begins the Art Effects Show here in Columbia, today is load the car day so I can set up early in the morning. (not my favorite part of being in a show)  If you've never been to this show, ya might want to make it a priority never to miss again.  It's a great time to view wonderful art as well as meet and chat with your favorite artists. (Oh, did I mention....the show is free)  Also tomorrow evening there is a reception with lots of great food.  I look forward to seeing you this weekend~!
