String of Hearts

"String of Hearts"

I just finished up the last of two art shows I had two weekends in a row. The first show was the Loveland Art Show in Loveland, Oh. and it was the weekend before and this past weekend was Art Affaire at the Promont Museum in Milford, OH.
I have to say both art shows were pretty nice. Meet a lot of new people and was revisited by past customers. Both shows were a first for me and I plan on trying to apply for both again next year. They are juried shows, so there is no guarantee of getting in every year.
I don't know about some of you, but these shows just tire me out! I don't know how some of these artist who travel around the country from art show to art show do it!!! 
 I'm trying to keep the art shows I participate in local, except for a couple at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis IN.
Anyway, it's time to get back into the studio and posting on my blog. I found out that I can only focus on a few things at a time and so I put my blog on the back burner.

Another wonderful doll, Carla! Yeah, shows are tiring - especially when they're not as good as you'd like. I just did one of those weekend before last. Met some other great local artists, tho, as we all had time to socialize! Glad to hear your shows were both a success!!

Glad your shows went well - and I agree, they can just wear you out. String of Hearts is sweet - looking forward to new pieces from your studio.
