I don't often display my artwork in my hometown. This past weekend, my three daughters and I set up an art booth during a local craft bazaar. The bazaar raises money for medical expenses for area families which this year included a popular high school student who is battling an aggressive form of cancer.
We had a wonderful day of visiting with friends and family and made a lot of sales. My daughters brought jewelry and some darling, miniature pies baked in tiny jars. I thought our booth display looked awesome.
At most art shows, I am restricted to only have artwork for sale. Some shows permit print sales while others only permit originals to be displays and sold. For this show I was able to reproduce some of my artwork on other gift items. It was great fun to create a little shop.
One of the new things I built for this show were the wooden wings I hung on the front of the booth. I saw wings like this at other craft shows and knew I wanted some of my own. I purchased the metal face during a trip to see my sister in California. I hope to create a copy of my flying shoes logo to use at art shows next spring.
This was my last art show until next spring. My Etsy shop is getting a lot of holiday orders which has me busy. My biggest creative project for now is directing "Man of LaMancha" at our community theater. So watch for stories about that adventure.
