A colorful weekend….

Save The Date…!

Picture 23Please mark your calendars for October 16th! I don't know where the time has gone – our Grand Opening Celebration Party is just around the corner. We'll have lots of libations, good things to eat, and Raffles to Win Free Art and Gifts. Opening this Storefront Studio Space has been a really big step for me and I look forward to celebrating with friends and customers old and new! I hope you can join us, please RSVP if you think you can come.

Art + Wine Thursday + Sale

Sept17-2

I hope you can join us Thursday night, September 17th! If not, you are welcome to peruse my website and inquire about paintings you may be interested in… I will be happy to offer you the 30% discount through 7pm on Friday.

Picture 1It’s been a non-stop couple of weeks of work here with art fairs and more ahead of me…trying to enjoy while also dealing with the learning curve of having this new space. I learn something new every day and am trying to remember that it’s okay that I’m making lots of mistakes because that is how we learn, right? Still difficult to not constantly judge myself, especially when it comes to marketing my events…juggling the social media thing I realize how dis-jointed my messages are and when I planned the studio events I didn’t take into consideration that I would be amid several art fair weekends nor did I think things out thematically. A perfect example adding the 30% off sale during tomorrow’s reception…would have been nice to have that on the postcard and in my initial e-mail blasts and on my website! Okay..enough of that, time to get to work…vacuuming, cleaning and re-hanging new work for tomorrow!

 

Birthday Surprise Pet Portrait!

Picture 24
Sarah said it was the best birthday gift ever! Michael surprised his wife by secretly ordering a Pet Portrait Box Frame Print of their dog Hedley a few weeks ago, they stopped in tonight (unbeknown to her to pick it up)…she was very surprised – it was a wonderful moment!

Contact me if you would like to order one of these for yourself, a friend or family member. It's about a 2-3 week turnaround time from the moment you sign off on my final sketch so give yourself plenty of time if you need it by a certain date…and really, it's not too early to start thinking about the holidays…wouldn't it be nice to have the shopping done early this year?!
