I am absolutely giddy thinking about the 3-day weekend I just had at #ArtiGras2018 in Abacoa, Jupiter FL.
Seems I sold something of everything, big and small. 9, yep that’s NINE original paintings, ranging from 6x6 to 20x20…floral, rhino, turtles, ram, horse, #sproutcreekfarm goat (to accompany the lady's last year purchase of sprout creek farm’s cow)!!!
Prints, tiles, cards, tote bag, keepsake box. Probably could have sold the shirts off our backs too.
Lots of interest in my large format pieces.
Apparently the economy is doing better as many people reported better sales than last year. Weather was great except for a little rain dancing Monday afternoon. Tent rain walls down, tent walls back up, and repeat 3 or 4 times. Kept us on our toes.
Met a person at the show who bought a large turtle print from me online several years ago from my Fine Art America gallery. I had a large acrylic print of it on the outside of the tent and they spotted it…and knew the signature. Hahaha…whodathunk.
I have 3 more sizable shows coming up, all in March and have to get myself painting and ordering more merchandise to fill the coffers. One show is at the Loggerhead MarineLife Center, back up in the Jupiter area and being a TurtleFest I need to at least replace the 4 turtles I sold.
Thank you to all who came out, had a good time and supported the arts. Thank you also to the volunteers who kept us organized and running smoothly. Great job.
