where have i been?

HELLO!!  i am back! phew! what a busy trip! Paradise City was a great success! The hardest part was setting up/taking down and then sitting still after I had been running around like a crazy person for so long getting ready for it! I wanted to show you some booth shots- before and afters. The show was 3 days long and in the first morning of the first day I had almost all of my sales! In other words, I had to go home that night (well, to my parents house- i had bombarded them with my "traveling studio") and paint to have more pieces to display in my booth for the following two days of the show! YIKES! Luckily I had brought some unfinished big paintings with me just in case...thank goodness I did!  Needless to say, I was one tired gal after all was said and done for sure! It was all well worth it though, and I look forward to exhibiting there again in October over Columbus Day Weekend. I was hoping to show you some previews, but I did not have internet or any spare time! So I wanted to make up for that so here you go!
my booth before... yes, it's really starting from scratch!

Well, that's it!  I will be putting up more pictures on flickr if you really want to see more... 
It was so nice to be home after the show for a bit to visit family and friends!  I also met so many wonderful exhibitors and other folks who stopped into my booth!  Perhaps I'll met you sometime too!!  I would have put up a shot of me hard at work, but I look so very very tired!  I sure was!   
I am back now in Ithaca, getting ready to head out this weekend to NYC and Brooklyn to give an artists' talk!  AHHH!  It is for the program I mentioned before, NYFA's MARK program, that I have been in for the last 6 months.  Our weekend in NYC will be the culmination of all of our hard work!  So much has happened in the last 6 months with the business side of my art, and it's this program that has really pushed me!

  2. Oh my Sarah, I love your work so much, those little wooden houses are adorable...are they for sale or can you make to commission?
    Thanks for sharing, I used to exhibit my textile work at craft fairs and know how exhausting/exhilerating it can be, glad it went well for you
