Whew!


The past few weeks have been a whirlwind spent getting ready for the King William Fair. I made art, packaged paintings, created postcards and business cards, made displays and packed everything up. We had a great time and I saw many friends at the fair and sold some of my work. The feedback was good even from those who didn't buy anything. And, it was very nice to spend the day with my fellow gallery buddies.

This week, I am going to take the week off and just do some cleaning in the studio. I have a lot of new ideas that I want to work on, but I need to let the chaos subside a bit first. I know there are artists who do fairs for the season and are very successful, but it is a very hard way to make a living. 

Below is a picture of my side of the booth. Thank you to all who came out to support me!

It's Fiesta!


I'm off to Fiesta with the rest of the Gallery at Gruene Lake Village team. We will have a jumbo tent set up at the King William Fair on Washington Street. Lots of new work from me and the rest of the fantastic artists at the gallery. Some of my new artwork is below.

The rain looks like it will be subsiding a bit, so it will be a great day to get your Fiesta on!

Studio Week

I was able to spend the entire week in the studio this week. Other than the luxury of a cup of coffee and a walk through the garden in the morning, I worked in the studio until at least 9:00 each evening. An artist's life doesn't necessarily mean a life of leisure! It was, however, a joy to work in such a lovely environment. The windows were open, the birds were chirping, the hummingbirds buzzing and the scent of wildflowers in the field was amazing.

I am gearing up for the King William Fair during Fiesta next weekend. The entire gallery will be down there to show off our art. I took the opportunity to make some new mixed media paintings. These have a much warmer tone to compliment Fiesta. I am really having fun with these!

If you are in San Antonio for Fiesta, stop by the King William Fair for some cold beer and food on a stick. We will be on Washington Street - hopefully in the shade.
