Last of my summer sales…On to the fall

This summer has been wonderful.  The best part was spending time with our children and their families.  It would be wonderful if they lived closer but they are just a flight away!

The shows this summer were fewer in number but all quality shows.  In June I had my studio open to the public for Open Studios of Beavercreek.  An added bonus was sharing my property with 2 other artists, Anita Reuther and Cherilyn Sunridge.  We spent a lot of time laughing, good therapy.

My second show was The Lake Oswego Festival of Arts.  We were blessed to not have the heat of 2015.  The art was quality and the patrons seemed to enjoy the festival.  I hope to continue with this show, close to home and good customers.

My last summer show was The Sunriver Art Faire.  This is my 4th year participating in this event.  The Sunriver Women’s Club knows how to run a show and take care of their artists.  Quality artists and patrons.  I speak to a lot of artists at this show, many who sell their art full-time and travel thousands of miles throughout the year. A LOT of work.

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the colors, smells, lighting, the crisp mornings and the slowing pace.  Open Studios of Beavercreek has 2 shows a year.  October 7-9, I will again have my studio open.  http://openstudiosofbeavercreek.weebly.com is the website.  It will be updated in the next month or so.  I will have new pieces as well as seasonal pieces, great for gifts

ROAD TRIP TO SUNRIVER

SUNRIVER ART FAIRE- August 12-14

I enjoy this show every year.  Great art, entertainment and Sunriver. Come and stop by my booth #47!

My next show will be Open Studios of Beavercreek October 7-9.  My studio will be one of the stops.  More info later, got to get ready for Sunriver!

Had a wonderful time at Lake Oswego Art in the Park. Next to Sunriver

Practically perfect weather all weekend and great attendance translated to a fun and successful weekend.  My favorite part of participating in art shows is meeting people and I was not disappointed this weekend.  Great people with unique stories.  I was able to introduce fused glass to many.  So many positive comments about my glass. A great encouragement  to continue creating. I sold many pieces to happy customers.

Sunriver Art Faire  August 12-14 will be my final summer season show.  I am doing fewer shows this year and finding this freeing.  I have time to create at a relaxed pace, and that translates to much higher satisfaction in the creative process.

Before family arrives from out of town, I will need to start replenishing my inventory, thanks to the wonderful visitors to LaIMG_1035sacred sky100_0570ke Oswego Art in the Park
