Never Give Up First Friday May 2

We all get discouraged when we don't win a prize, don't sell, don't see any interest in our creations.  I think highs and lows are always there.  We have to persevere and when things are slow that is a good time to work on improvement in our work and marketing.  Good times are a' coming!

Look what happened to Stewart White with his plein air painting.  It went through several events and then WOW!  Top prize at the Plein Air Salon.$15k-from-the-pleinair-salon.html

In the meantime I will have paintings at the Bastrop Bling Company on Friday.  My display will be similar to this.   There are a couple you haven's seen before and some you haven't seen for a while.  This will be the last Art Walk where I am featured artist for the Summer.  Hope to see you there!

Looks like a good display to me. Hope you sell lots.

Bag Blog, thank you. The Art Walk is a good way to meet new folks. Bling shoppers will be new to me, I don't do much bling! Heh, heh. I will wear a blouse I bought there tonight.
