Spring Pop-Up Show
On May 1st, I'll be participating in the WeHa Artists Emporium Spring Pop-Up Show. It's just a small 3-hour arts & crafts show with 6 artists showcasing goods in one of the member's house. The one we did in December went very well, so we're going to try a Spring one.
I'm going to lower my sales expectations because people are more likely to shop before Christmas. But, we figure, let's give Spring a go! There are teacher gifts to buy and maybe people want to perk up their walls with something new and bright. And, because it's in a house in a neighborhood, people just stroll on by. It's very fun and casual.
So, in addition to working on getting my current book project ready to show editors (the revision process is truly a marathon, my friends), I've been making smaller pieces of art to sell.
Our art hunt, Hidden Houses, will be the day before. (April 30th if you're local.) So I've made a few additional clay houses to sell. And I'm working on some smaller paintings too. I started with the cats (top picture.) and I liked how that turned out, so I did a version with houses. Now I think I'll do one with birds. I'm trying to come up with things that have a similar shape but vary in coloring. Dogs? No. Maybe fish?
I've ordered some cards, prints, and books and I may make a few stuffed animals because they are cute and I have a TON of fabric in my basement. :) It's going to be a busy month!
In other news:
I hope you all had a HAPPY EASTER. Magoo is 13 and is wise to the ways of the Easter Bunny so there was no basket this year. I would have happily made him one and put the clues around the house, but he declined. And that's fine with me. Saves me a lot of work. It's tough to make an Easter basket for a 13 yr old who can't eat sugar.
Thank you so much for stopping in!
Have a great day!
