I would do a happy dance but my feet are tired from standing so much at the Artist’s Garage Sale today. When I first got there to set up and there weren’t many cars unloading, I thought “oh no, it’s Memorial Day weekend and everyone’s out of town.” There didn’t seem to be that many vendors but then it’s a big space – Olympia Armory.

Well beside chatting with various artist – new and old friends – my throat is soooooooo sore

get ready….
I sold $305 worth of my originals [Sumi-e, mixed media, acrylic paintings and those little collages] – matted, no frames.
I priced to sell 20X16″ Sumi-e = $20, the rest of the art [mixed media, acrylic and 11X14″ Sumi-e] for $10 each and the little mini collages for $10 or two for $15.

my favorite sale was this very cute little girl – about 4 or 5. She couldn’t sell the art on the table so I plucked the painting below.

Her eyes lit up… Her parents also picked out two of the 11X14″ matted Sumi-e paintings.

I am thrilled that so many pieces of my work went to happy customers. Afterall, for me the point is to share this creativity and not have all these stacks of artwork weighing me down. So a big “thank you” to all who purchased my work…

Also I handed out biz cards talking up my art classes and I may have a chance to do a demo for the South Sound Ikebana group.

Keep arting!
