The big event is over and all the panels, wreaths, cards, photos, and "stuff" is put away. The most wanted items this year had to do with the sea. I sold several gyotaku fish prints, a canvas photo of the cairns we made while camping at Kalaloch, and a painting of those cairns. I also sold one of the framed under glass paintings I call my terraiums..Patches...and some mugs and tiles. I really thought the mugs would be a hit. I surely enjoy drinking tea out of mine each morning.
Overall, we had about the same amount of customers coming by even though this year was sunny and warm and last year was cold, wet, and ...cold. Who knows what controls all of this? I do know that our brochure this year was awesome!!!
Sales weren't wonderful but.....I did get to meet a couple from the Haystack Gallery in Cannon Beach, Oregon and....I'm taking some paintings down next week. More on that coming up!!
