My husband Tom and I are preparing to leave for Maine this weekend for some soul rejuvenation. I feel that nature does that, I also think that a painting is in the future with some wording like that. It has been a busy few months. I have done art shows in Indianapolis, Northville Michigan, La Grange Kentucky and Fort Wayne, IN. There is much preparation for shows and I always feel very stressed the week of the show and now we are going to have some well needed down time. I have found that no matter how much I sell at a show I always come away with more than that. I meet many people, who get introduced to my work. I get a lot of good feedback which means so much. My helpers are top notch and I enjoy spending time with them. It’s fun and hard work growing my art business. This painting is a print of my “In the Pines” and my sister Linda had it framed. It just looks so lovely.
This was taken on the Fourth of July from my back porch of the downtown Fort Wayne fireworks. I couldn’t see all of them but the tall ones were bright.
The video above, I took from my booth at Three Rivers Art Fair in Fort Wayne. Our booth was tucked behind the statue of Anthony Wayne on his horse, which drew a lot of folks to it but I feel that our placement didn’t draw the crowds like others. I have asked for a different spot next year. The kids loved climbing on it, many had their picture taken with it and the horse was anatomically correct with the 10-12 year old boys laughing and pointing at it. This cat painting was a hit and my sister Linda purchased it, she loved it so much. What a complement. I have prints though in my http://etsy.com/shop/heresmyhart etsy shop, and which a few purchased at the show. .
My customer that purchased the original In The Pines sent a picture showing where she put it. I was quite thrilled to get it!
Such fun it was to carve new stamps for my note cards! So connect to my facebook page and instagram because I will be posting pictures of our trip along the way. I’m so excited!!
