I've still got a TON to do aside from my 2 little ones to care for and the typical daily housework. As for art, my to-do list hasn't gotten any shorter, but that's not a complaint at all. I love doing art. It's finding time to do it that's sometimes the trouble. I did finish a painting yesterday that I'm pretty happy with, but it's a Mother's Day gift, so I can't post it yet.
My personal life... well, my grandmother hasn't been doing too well, so I've been to the hospital to visit her. They're moving her to a rehab place, so maybe she'll make some progress. My family has always been very close, and none of us are ready to lose her yet.
Back to my art life, the festival went pretty well. I didn't make a lot of money, but I was able to give out my card to get my website and Etsy shop out there. I've had a bit more traffic on those since then, and I've gotten some people interested in commissions.
I have to admit, my booth didn't look all that attractive. I'll post a pic anyway for you to see and probably laugh at, haha. Anyway, I forgot my easel and sign, and I think everyone could tell I was new at this. I have another chance to do it better coming up soon though. I was invited to have a booth at two more festivals! One is coming up on June 1, and the booth fee goes to RIFA (local soup kitchen/food bank type place) so it's a great cause even if I don't make much again. Questions for you...
Have you guys ever had a booth at a festival or something similar? How did it go? or if you haven't yet, how do you think you would set yours up?And now feature time!
It's not really a theme, but these two stood out among my newer watchers.
does some really cool 3D work. I know nothing about digital art, but the panda is totally adorable and the colors give the appropriate misty feel befitting of the title "Taking a Morning Stroll".
does mostly fingernail art, but this photo she took called "Music Hearts" attracted me, not just for how it was done, but my husband plays the horn so it fit me personally as bringing love and music together.
Well done you guys! Keep up the great work!
