Seems like nature knew Labor Day came and went and the fall weather has settled over South Jersey. There is a crispness to the air this morning and the herons and egrets have been visiting the lagoons frequently now that the summer folks have become scarce.
This was my first summer of getting out there (here in the USA anyway) and it was a steep learning curve for me. Outdoor summer sales are hard physical work. Long hours. Sales are hard earned. But I did make some sales, and I met art lovers, artists, and a lot of nice people at every single event. I got good advice, encouraging words, and I hear “You have really beautiful work” more times than I can count.
I sold a number of giclees and even more prints, but I am happy to say I sold originals, too. Several buoy paintings in gouache and oil sold, and this weekend, two of the sea creatures found a new home. All in all a good start, but I am looking forward to a nice stretch of studio time before hitting the road with my sale tent again!
