Adventure Challenge – Day 9: Art Show!

Again, my life is all about trying to balance it all. I drove 6 hours for work, woke up, worked all day and then rushed off to my art show. It was a huge hit. It was a First Friday show with a concert out front. I estimate about 2000 people coming through my show. I sold 4 paintings and 3 prints. It was a terrific night with lots of hugs. I create work with texture and actually asked guests to touch the paintings all night. I love the way people light up when they are allowed to touch the paintings. I continuously received hugs and thank yousImage throughout the night. It’s also always fun for me to sit and listen to people’s feedback and reactions without letting on I’m the artist. I repeatedly heard, “This makes me so happy”. I finally had to close the door and turn people away at 10:30 p.m. It was a lot of fun, but always creates a lot of anxiety and chaos right before a big show. I’m officially glad it’s over but was so incredibly grateful for everyone who came out to support me.
