I am in a Gallery

I'm so happy to share with you that my paintings are now in the Carole Rosefelt's Gallery in Clearwater, FL. I don't know if you remember but she is my art teacher and in October she gave me the opportunity to show some paintings in her Gallery. That was when I did my first show, but now we have a monthly contract where I rent a space on the wall. Mrs. Carole arranged the paintings in a very beautiful way, she really takes that very seriously. And I have to say that I'm very proud of all of them. Another good thing is that as a member of the Gallery, I have the opportunity to participate of all of the shows. The next one is "Artzy Holiday Gift Day" on Sunday, December 4th  from noon to 4p.m. I'm going to be in front of my art wall and I will also have a table space. For this show I will have cards and necklaces with my paintings on them. I'm planning to make 4 new small paintings too!!. The whole idea of this particular show is to offer the public affordable gifts for the Holidays. I am blessed because with every show, with every opportunity I'm living my dream of a creative life, and that's amazing to me!!!!!

Art in the Park

We started the day at 6:00 a.m. to get ready for the show and took the road around 7:30 a.m. in direction to the Crystal Beach Park. We got there at 8:00 a.m. so we had plenty of time to find a good spot and to set up everything. What a beautiful day and windy!!! Well the wind kept up really busy....everything was falling down. The people started to come slowly but steady and I had very nice comments about my work like "different", "positive", "pretty, pretty girls". Some people took the time to even touch the paintings and some of them took my card. Others just grab a candy. I felt so proud of my girls and angels. Definitely, this show  was a great opportunity for me to promote my art and myself and I really had a great time talking to the people about my inspirations, techniques and more. The day past so fast !!! I have to say that this was a beautiful learning experience about shows in the park and what sells better. So I'm thinking for the next one  to have cards, jewelry, mini art and more!!!
