Thanks Sally, Mea, Josie and Val - and Sally, I get tired too sometimes with what I'm doing.  The painting is the easy part - it's all of the marketing that's so time consuming! Chicago is a nice distraction - 2 days of training for my husband's business and 5 nights of vacation in Wisconsin where he's originally from. And my mobility boot will be joining us, Val!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thanks Danielle! And just back from the show - in 2 hours, 12 paintings sold! I'll be donating approximately $900 to the nonprofit as a result. Plus the local business paper was there taking photos for their next week's issue so there should be nice publicity. It was such a great night!! Now I'm really inspired to pick up that paintbrush again!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thank you Natalie and Lisa! It's been nice to open up some wall space in my home with these sales - another benefit of this last show!

And some more great news: On sept 25-26 a local Jesuit private high school is having their annual art sale. They only invite the "who's-who" of artists in the region to display their art...and this year they're inviting me! Each artist can have up to 20 paintings to sell, and we set our own prices, just like at a gallery. I split any sales 50-50 with the school, just like at a gallery. Not only is this a huge honor, the people that attend are quite wealthy and love to buy art ...and we're encouraged to price our art a little higher since everyone knows a huge amount goes to the school. I'm Looking forward to opening up more wall space next month as well as to getting in front of a new audience. I'll post a copy of the promotional postcard when they send it to me.
Cheers,
Sharon
