If its one thing that is consistent its the days and time going fast. Into the last weeks of July and I have the markets to get ready for next weekend. Had fun at the last ones, selling some cards, a portrait and doing several mini massages. Meeting lots of people was fun also.
I have been drawing a few portraits lately to take to the markets and now am able to announce I can do laminated prints of them in all different sizes! I also have bought a portable massage chair so I will look pretty darn professional now!!! Bring it on I say, and hope I get lots of people with sore necks and backs for me to work on. (Not that I wish that on people really, sorry, but they will certainly benefit it from having a massage).
Made up some bigger signs for my artwork with prices etc, getting more organized than the last one. You always improve I think as the months go by and make your stall more inviting. So if you are interested in coming to them, they are at The Entrance High School, 27th July, 9 - 2pm. Be there or you will miss out on lots. There are over 100 stalls now, all undercover with a kids play area too.
I sold, to a lovely guy called Randel in Queensland, an A2 laminated print of my portrait of Clint Eastwood. It looked pretty cool that size and its going into his mancave when he gets it. Hopefully it will be Monday. This is a pic of the size he got.
An art magazine called Artists Palette had some of my art published in their mag and I was the prize winner also!! Pretty stoked about that. This is the page and the other side is my prize.
In September the Central Coast Gramma School have their annual fete and art exhibition and I will exhibiting 5 of my paintings. I have decided to put in my kookaburras, galahs, falcon, black cockatoos and white cockatoos. Looking forward to seeing them amongst all the artworks. They usually have around 500 pieces on display and for sale. Be a bonus if I sell one, or two, or three..... just hoping, you gotta hey?
In November, I know I am jumping the gun a bit here, but it will be around soon enough. The set of shops at Woy Woy called Gnostic Forest has a cafe and I will be showing off 15 of my paintings for the month. I might put in some portraits amongst the paintings, but that is a while away so will sort it out nearer the time. Very excited about that too.
So there are several things in the pipeline for me, its all about me getting my art out there to the public.
Well its Friday afternoon, time to sip on a glass of wine, and put my feet up, (thats after walking the dogs, and making dinner). Enjoy your weekend coming, where ever you are and be creative in whatever do and makes you happy.
Love and Light to every one
