Great Experience

My first Art Show was a great experience. My husband conference ends up early so we got there just on time. I had the opportunity to show my family the studio- gallery and my paintings on the wall ( with prices on them). They met my teacher and friends and enjoyed the snack too. A lot of people showed up to the show but even I did not make a sale the experience by itself meant a lot to me. I really felt great just being there sharing with other artists. I felt that I belong to that world and I learned too. And you know what? My teacher invited me to another show!!!! Art in the Park in Crystal Beach, Fl  this is tomorrow Sunday from 10 to 4pm. Well, it was today but because of the rain it's going to be tomorrow.
This show is different because I'm going to have my own space. As you imagine, I worked a lot this past two weeks. I had to make prints of the paintings, more business cards, a big sign and more art. I also tried to make greeting cards but had some problems so no cards for now. At the park they don't allow tents just umbrellas, tables, etc. My plan is to create a romantic ambience in my booth and I'm taking with me a table, couple of doors, a mannequin, a chair and a beautiful tablecloths that my mother in law made for the big table.
Everything is ready in my SUV for tomorrow. I'm really excited and my daughter too ( my helper)!!!!! I"ll be back with all the details.
