It was great fun! Over 250 people voted for The People's Choice Award which will be announced shortly and the artist given $100!! Everett Artist Supply and Framing was the sponsor for that award. We had a credit card machine for this show and used it......I got to figure it all out and I did! My photo Hay There sold..thank you, thank you, thank you!
We've got a long list of how to make it better next year; so, hopefully we will get a chance to do so. We really need sponsors as it is an expensive operation...but well worth the effort. I was pretty exhausted by the time it was torn down but really enjoyed getting to know more of the artists.... a benefit of being an organizer.
Next event?? Chili Chowder Cook Off and Art Auction to benefit the Chamber. Guess I better figure out which of my lucky girls gets to be in that!!
I started out making my paintings in the guest bedroom that is attached to the garage. It worked for years but was a real pain to get all cleaned up when guests actually arrived...which is really not that often. Now..I have the whole space for working on and displaying my art work. John has been a great help in pushing me to just do it!! The floor still needs to be done and the really cool skylight that he has designed along with two new doors with windows to match the other new windows. It will be light and sunny looking even on the rainy days. That deep yellow on the walls helps to sunny it up!! My sister visted early this month and on the day she left we started moving out the bedroom furniture. Those of you who have stayed with us will appreciate the change more than the people who have never seen how much "stuff" I had packed into that space. It's a miracle!! Thank you Johnny!
