Awesome Nature

This week, I went to a school field trip with my little son Emilio. We visited Moccasin Lake Nature Park, a small park very close to our school and home. Honestly, I wasn't expecting something spectacular. But I was so wrong!!!! The nature is awesome and is always there waiting for us to just stop our busy lives for a little bit and enjoy it. And that's what we did!

Crystal Beach Show

Back in November 2011, I had the opportunity to participate in a Park Show for the very first time. The show was at Crystal Beach, FL and was a great experience. Well, few weeks ago I went back there for another show but this time was a little different. The day was beautiful (not freezing cold like last time), my view to the water was spectacular and we have a lot of visitors.
I also have more experience now with shows so I know what to bring with me for display and I can set up everything faster. I have learned what things sell better, which for me are small original art, cards, prints and necklaces, so I know what products I need more amounts.
The people that visit me had kind words for me and my art but one lady in particular touched my heart that day. She fell in love with the small painting "I am beautiful". She told me that after a rough time dealing with sickness, she needs to remind herself everyday that she is beautiful. Experiences like that one   remind me the amazing healing power that beautiful art (that comes from the heart and soul) has on people.
Another great thing was that a young lady invited me to a show at her church in Saint Petersburg. This is going to be next month and I will talk more about it soon.
To finish this great art show, my niece and her husband surprise me with their visit from Orlando. How nice was that?

Art from the Heart

 Few weeks ago, The Artist Guild Alliance had a show at a Downtown Dunedin park and I had the opportunity to be part of it. The day was beautiful, my allergy was under control and my daughter came with me so I couldn't ask for more. We displayed my art as usual, a table for small art, prints and necklaces, a door with some originals and a mannequin with the new art. We had a good traffic of people, lots of complements and I sold few things. But what really made my day was one lady in particular when she was looking to my art and said: "Very talented and beautiful, you can tell is from the heart!' And it's true, I really put my heart and soul on each and everyone of my paintings, and you feel so amazing and proud when someone recognize that. Feedback like that motivate me to keep painting and be a better artist every day!
