....But a really awful art sale.
Good thing I had so much fun, or I'd really be grumpy right now.
I framed my 4 favorite pieces, had lots of note cards, and a couple of baskets of prints. I also had my portrait portfolio and business cards for people to check out. Sent lots of folks home with my card...not so many with actual prints.
Whew. I'm fried. My body, my mind, my hopes, and most definitely my bank account...all drained.
The manager of the hosting bookstore offered to take a few of my pieces on consignment though - it will be interesting to see if they sell or not.
I did have lots of fun, despite very little traffic. I met some neat people, saw some great stuff that the other vendors had, and had the grill's tri tip wrap for lunch...to die for. It was a disappointing, but very nice day. At least I was in good company - it was slow for everyone. Some even packed up and left early.
I woke up this morning and clicked on over to one of my favorite sites. And the photo in the article I read was so...fitting. Made me laugh out loud! Here it is.
I promised pictures from the show. I meant to shoot the entire event, but got distracted by all the sitting around and chewing ice I had to get done. I only snapped a few shots right after I got set up:
PS. Thanks so much to all my sweet friends who showed up to lend some moral support. You made the day even more fun :-)
