Jumping into the pond

Welcome to my blog!

This past weekend I took part in my first art show and sale, or as I call it “jumping into the pond”! It was a long road to get to this point but man of man I am glad that I did it! The show was local and very close to home. I told a fellow vendor that the idea of it being within blocks of my home appealed to me because if it as a disaster at least it wasn’t a long commute to get home and curl up like a ball and weep! No weeping required!

It was a 2-day show and I sold 2 pieces! I had hoped to sell 10 but very happy with my 2 sales. I never expected to ever show anyone my art let alone actually sell it, but a happy little texting accident last summer resulted in my first sale and the idea was born. I don’t paint any piece with the intention of selling, only to create a piece that speaks to me.

    Winston and I are so proud of you Anne. Never in my wildest dreams did I think there would be an artist in the family.
    I am sure your dad sees you and is saying “what the___?” But then he would say ” you got your sense of colour from me”
    Go for it Anne. Love you

    Anne you are an inspiration! Your courage, faith and friendship gave me the push I needed to try my hand at painting and I thank you for it. You do beautiful work that speaks to those that view it. I always knew that you would be a success and this is only the beginning.
