Just got home from the art show today. For mid-Sept. in Illinois it was a hot day. Got to over 90 degrees. I was at the show setting up by 6 a.m. and got home around 5 p.m. I've done this show for 4 years now and this year produced the lowest sales. What was great, is that I won the "Best Oils" award. So, that constituted a small check. My stuff is on the high side, but the mood was different this year. The heat bogged people down and no one was selling. I'm glad I had my cards and small prints. Sold out of the cards and most of the prints. My mom and sister, Jean came up too. Oh well...I'll take what I made and pay off the expenses I incurred doing the show. Next year, I'll do smaller oils and just bring a few bigger pieces for judging purposes. My feet are sooo dirty. I didn't realize it until I got home. Well, now it's time to sit and read the Sunday paper and relax!
