It is a beautiful warm sunny winter day. The cat is laying on my dream journal in the sunbeam.
The under $100 show was amazing, a record breaking $114,000 worth of local art was sold. This is very encouraging! Way to go @ and everyone involved at @.yyc!
Unfortunately, I came down with a cold last Wednesday which put a damper on my networking and participation in the show and had poor personal sales. I was disappointed but I am still very thankful for those who came out to see all the art, for those who I overheard complimenting my work, and for those who did buy my stuff.
I'm also thankful for those who have encouraged me and bought my work this past year as I have been meandering through styles and techniques and testing out if selling art is a viable income option alongside the childrearing and homemaking and all that serious business. I will continue to test out teaching, online, and local sales next year.
I have a nice new laptop with stickers which I hope to do more writing, emailing, researching and learning on in 2019. Yay!
