Back On Track

San Antonio Fiesta Arts Fair is just around the corner! Time has flown and my inventory has shrunk. The work has been going rather slow for a variety of reasons, but it's time to get my butt into gear! The paintings that I've just finished have a theme. For some reason Mardi Gras is in my head and I've decided to roll with that theme to create what I feel are some really rockin' paintings! I have one more that I'm working on and should finish by this weekend. Then it's on to mermaids. I went ahead and signed up for another show in April. Could be a mistake and I might be putting myself under too much stress, but actually we could really use the extra dinero it might bring in, so I'm goin' for it. It's a new show. I don't know that the attendance will be good since new shows are questionable. It's up in Bernalillo which is just outside of Albuquerque. It's a Dia de Los Muertos show...yeah kinda early I know...but then in my mundo it's Dia de Los Muertos everyday! jeje I figure I'll crank out some decoupaged mirrors, boxes, candles and a few new originals too. But I'm betting on the lower priced items for this show. And then only one week after that it's off to San Antonio. Here's hoping that awful cold I have right now is at the end and I can get back to work. My painting hand is antsy!

I'm sure you'll get your inventory up quick! The queen of hearts, wow! I mean everything is sooo awesome!
I want to try that show out in Bernallio also. But, I am scared of loosing money on it. I know you'll have no problem. Even when shows are slow you always do EXCELLENTE! Well I'm gonna go carve out another block for block printing cards..

Soo what do you think about the April show? Carolyn wants me to join, but right now 80 bucks is kind of a risk...especially after my last craft show fiasco!

OMG! These paintings are just fabulous! I love, love, love the Mardi Gras look and the colors! These works won't be around for long. No doubt, they'll be collected at your next show. Good stuff!
