Well I can’t believe it, but another Funk in the City outdoor art festival is in the books. Here’s reminder from the last one.
This year wouldn’t you know it, it rained the entire day. But I have to say this show changed my mind about shows in the rain. I actually had a good show considering it was raining. People were buying. I guess if you’re willing to pay to get into an outdoor art festival and walk around in the rain then you came to buy something.
This proved to be the case for me. I got a few new art collectors, I’m very happy to report. There wasn’t a lot of people, but they were buyers. That’s the kind I like!
I snapped these photos right before the show ended, so they do look a little sparse. Luckily, the temperature was mild. Not too hot or too cool.
Here are the original paintings I sold… All three of my Bohemian Poppies. I just love the colors in these paintings, I have to admit I was a little sad to see them go. They have a fine new home though with a beautiful young woman in Michigan.
Next I had new works on paper, not a usual substrate for me but I’ve been trying it out. I sold two of them, which I was happy about. Two ravens. One named “Silent Observation” and the other “Moon Raven”. One went to a new collector from Illinois, another artist at the show, and the other went to a current collector who already has a few of my paintings.
I’ll have prints listed here on my site as soon as I can. It’s been crazy busy the last few weeks. First getting ready for Funk in the City, and this week I’ve been painting a 1950’s woman on a friend of mine’s pull behind RV. Saturday I have a show at Alexandrian Public Library, it’s a Mini Con! That ought to be fun, I’ve never done one. Oh and Monday I have an exhibit at the same library for the month of October! So I’ve had a lot going on. I also just found out I got into a juried market in November in New Harmony. Then in December comes Christmas in New Harmony, a two day show.
I’ll post again with photos of the RV, I’ve got a little more to do on it tomorrow morning. That’s it for now.
Learn more about me on the ‘About’ page in the menu at the top. I’m an artist – a painter mostly and an avid gardener. I paint a variety of subjects including birds, koi fish, my gardens, ponds and flowers as well as anything having to do with nature especially trees and tropical scenes. I also enjoy painting abstracts and have started creating more and more of them. My most favorite thing to try to achieve in my painting is mystery.
If you would like to keep up with what I’m doing, join my email list. About once a month I send out a letter that gives you invitations for shows, birthday greeting, sneak peeks at new work and more. I’d love for you to add your email to my Friends and Collectors list!
