Hey Ya'll!! Festifall in Chapel Hill today was brilliant. Glorious weather, wonderful people and I WON 2nd PLACE for my art!!!!!!! I just want all of you to know I would'nt have this body of work without all of your encouragement, support and input! I put it out there from the very beginning not really knowing if this work was going to be valid and all of you gave me the confirmation, so this ribbon is for all of you too! Last year my Festifall booth had turquoise Raku, very beautiful and very easy to sell. This new work is work that I love and believe in and that makes all the difference to me! It's more difficult work and much more expensive, but I really feel connected to it.
Thanks to everyone that gave my barns new homes. I had the best show I have ever had today and I enjoyed meeting all of you so much. I love knowing who will have my work, it is such a personal thing to work so hard on something that means so much to you and then hand it over to someone who truly appreciates art. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Sorry Brandon, A very nice gentleman took your barn home today, I will have to make another one for you!
I had to go up on the stage at the end of the show and have very nice things said about me and my work, how bizarre, it was fun though. Thanks to the Chapel Hill Parks and Rec for being so incredibly organized, they actually sent a booth sitter to watch my booth so I could go to this awards thing and it is the most organized festival I do all year.
I have lots more pictures, there are still pics from the Clay and Blog show Friday night. Boy three shows in one weekend is a lot to deal with! And last but not least, thanks to Linda and Gary, my blogger friends for coming by today, it was so great to see you on my home turf!!!!
Thanks again to everyone that shopped with me today, I really appreciate your support of my art work!!!!!!! More photos later, I have a sore throat from so much talking and I am beat! Good night all..................
