The event was such a success that Brigitte invited me back to do it again in August! I came close to selling 2 (possibly 3) paintings - but the price was "too high" for one, another painting (the one I was working on) wasn't finished, and is intended for an upcoming show, and another may still yet be sold.
I have much thanks to give to my Art Manager and Hubby Joey who has been working his butt off to make contacts, and find shows and contests for me to partake in. We have 1 more show, and 3 art contests to attend, and more to come. It definitely is rewarding to be able to share this experience with Joey, and it really is a team effort. I could not do this without him. Here's to the future - it is quite exciting.
