Score one for the starving artist

So whatever was put into my head about art fairs was completely abolished yesterday. I had an amazing time, made some AWSOME money, and met really cool people. Not one buthead. It didn't have the air of a gallery. It's like comparing apples and oranges. The variety I had was impressive and people bought from all types of art that I do. This also tells me the "painter" "sculpture" BOX most artists put themselves into isn't me, I do it all! I'm an artist and I sold over 40+ pieces of art. (I should have kept a tally?) I sold to all types of cool people and love the fact that my art will hang on their walls! One woman is even sending a collage to her sister (an engineer) to Harlem, NY. Umm yeah my bucket list is to show in NY, and in a twisted sort of way this kinda maybe counts!! At least in my twisted head. :) I have been invited to two other art fairs and think I will look into them in a serious way! Who knows that "right person " might see my art and I may get into a "big city" gallery! Heck yeah.

And on a side note the side business I want to start was tested yesterday and came to be a huge success. So I think I will continue with my website building and marketing for it... Maybe I can end up on oprah like the crock people did!
