I didn't win an award or anything like that, but I really enjoyed painting with my painting partner Leah Foote. All the paintings were beautiful and the reception was very nice. I painted with watercolor this year and the weather was perfect both days. We all had a good time. And I sold a painting!!!!

A BIG Thank you to Debbie for falling in love with my fiddler watercolor painting and taking him to his new home. The painting is very special to me and I hope she loves it always. Thanks again!!
A lot about being an Artist is delivering artwork to shows and picking up artwork Last week I spent a few days picking up work from several events. I then bring them back to the studio and rehang, rearrange . Some pieces have to come off the wall and stored. It gives me a chance to rethink what's working and what is not. So Friday, I unpacked the bags of artwork and rehung and rearranged I finished up with a little vacuuming and dusting. So tomorrow, it's studio time again.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
