Hello there and Happy New Year everybody!
I hope that your are keeping warm this winter or are escaping to warmer temperatures. I have been busy this winter getting ready for shows in 2012. Yes, you read that correct. I will not be doing any shows this year.
My focus is on buying an enclosed trailer, so I can chase my dreams to future Florida art fairs / festivals. I have recieved good news last year that I was accepted to my first show in Florida. The show was called "Coconut Point Art Fair" in November 2009. The art fair is near Naples and Fort Myers. The problem was that I wasn't ready to go, financially speaking (not enough money for the enclosed trailer.) After several days of thinking, I made the decision not to participate. Which was not easy to accept! As time went on, I realized this was a wise decision. My goal is to be in Florida in February, March, and April of 2011. I will be keeping myself busy with my landscape maintenance business and creating art projects in my studio.
I have added a few new fish scenes to this website. I will be adding new aqua scenes throughout this year. My next newsletter will be when I get the enclosed trailer. I will also reveal my plans for future Florida shows.
I want to thank everybody who came to visit me at Three Rivers Arts Festival last year. I would like to say a "HUGE THANK YOU" to the patrons who purchased my scenes. That was my most successful show to date. I wish everybody a safe and prosperous 2012. See you guys in the near future.
