You know how facebook does these "one year ago today" things where a post from a year ago is brought back as a "memory"? I've seen it on other people's pages but never had one come up on mine, until today. And how appropriate! As I try to prepare for my first time ever having my own booth in an art fair to try to sell some artwork, I was reminded that last year I had a few pieces for sale in the main art tent at Art on Nepessing St. - on a bit of a whim - and actually sold a few.
And then I went on to have several more art experience firsts in 2014:
2014 was a very good, productive, artful year.
This year is off to a pretty darn good start too. My work made its way beyond Lapeer, to Grand Haven, Detroit, and Pontiac MI, and San Francisco CA. I started an art website. I am actually blogging, even though no one reads this stuff. I made another exhibit catalog, for the JKPP 5th Anniversary exhibit in San Francisco. I am getting ready for my first art fair booth, and will be exhibiting in the LAA Spring Show again this year in just a couple weeks. Later this year I will have work on display at Cranberries Cafe in Goodrich MI.
So back to Art on Nepessing St. 2015: last year I had just doodle art for sale, this year I will have a variety of landscape paintings, portraits, abstracts, and of course doodle art.
More info and photos to come.
The moral of the story is - Never stop having firsts!
