A SUPERSMASHING SUCCESS!

Just a quick note about tonight's event. Thanks so much to everyone for coming out to the art show! It was a SUPERSMASHING SUCCESS!! 12 pieces sold, 4 commission orders and over 50 people attended. I hope you had fun and it meant a lot to have you there! To those who couldn't make it, if you still want to take a peek at my work it will only be up there until this Friday as they need that wall for their projections.

I hope to post pictures soon, though I was so caught up in talking to people that I didn't take pictures of how crowded it was. I will blog about it in more detail and post pics in my next blog!!

2 more days....

2 more days until the art unveiling! I'm getting a bit nervous...maybe because it's my first show. I have finished a few series sets. I really hope the pieces are well received. I've been working really hard on them!

Yesterday/Last night/This morning my sister and best friend helped me paint my shadow box frames. Thanks for helping me out!!

I will take a photo of our progress and upload it. I'm going back for one more round!
