This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this thing going, so please stay tuned for more and subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates!
Here it goes! I’ve been feverishly working to prepare for Small Business Saturday. Though, technically I’m not a small business. I don’t make enough from my art to pay taxes. Yet! It’s considered a hobby, at this point. But, that’s something I’m working hard to change!
At any rate, my art is on exhibit at the Farr Best Theater in Mansfield Texas throughout the month and will be there for Small Business Saturday on November 30th. I was invited by Mansfield Commission For The Arts to have a booth outside the theater that day selling my work from 12-4. I will also open the theater, so that the pieces on exhibit are available for purchase, as well.
I’m very excited and I hope to get a large turnout. I’ve only had one booth thus far and this is my first exclusive exhibit. I’ve had a fantastic year for my art. I won Runner Up in PAAS’ Painted Easter Egg Contest in the Spring. I won First Place in the State Fair Of Texas for my llama painted rock over the Summer. I was featured in the Cleburne Times Review newspaper (and on their website and Facebook!) discussing my artwork this Fall. I joined the Mansfield Commission For The Arts earlier this year. I donated a Marvin The Martian illustration I did to the Chuck Jones Center For Creativity’s Red Dot Auction in California. Proceeds benefitted art programs for children with autism and seniors with alzheimers. I also painted a rainbarrel that was featured and auctioned off in Mansfield’s Earth Day Festival. So, as you can see, it’s been a banner year (and I really should have started a blog sooner)!
I hope to continue this success and propel even further! And I hope you’ll come along for the ride! Please, Subscribe! Thank you!
