I had such a good time at my show during the weekend. It was at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio.
This is the main level of this beautiful museum, and I was on the second level--
I was so happy to be a part of this art show in this venue. Okay, normally, my indoor shows are in one of these big cold expomarts that at one time used to be a grocery store or something comparable to that. My sales weren't blockbuster, but they were good with very appreciative customers. There's no doubt that I will be going back.
And there were some amazing artists there too. I didn't take any photos, because artists aren't too keen on people taking photos of their work unless they give permission, and I didn't want to make a pest of myself while they were trying to conduct business. However, I did meet one artist, Gail Trunick, whose work blew me away, and she was the sweetest lady, and I know that she would have let me take some shots of her booth (wasn't even thinking at the time) Luckily, she has a website where you can see her art--HERE. If you're familiar with the show American Pickers--well, I guess you could say that's what she is. But it's what she does with the things that she "picks"--wonderful!! Go take a look.....after you see what I'm giving away.
First of all, my 2 year blog anniversary has come and gone--so I wanted to have a giveaway for it, and there's another reason also. You guys!!--Thank You all so much for your support and encouragement. You always put a smile on my face especially on those days when I need it. So here's what I'm giving away--
This is a print of my artwork that I put on an 8 x 8 gallery wrapped canvas, and added those fun knobs from Hobby Lobby.
And like always, you can enter your name 5 times. First, just leave a comment and that's it. But if you're a follower--remember to tell me, and that will be a 2nd time. Mention it on your blog for another chance, and yet ANOTHER chance if you mention it on your Facebook page. And the 5th time is to be a fan of my Facebook page. Make sure you tell me if you do any of this, so I can enter your name for each thing. That sure is a lot of chances! : )
I'll be drawing someone's name (via random.org) next Tuesday, Dec. 13 (wow! so close to Christmas!) Good luck everyone and thank you all so much again!!
