The show last weekend was a great success – sold a good amount, gained three commissions and others that say they will contact me with some other work they would like. I usually take those with a grain of salt, because you don’t hear from them often, it's a good exit line when they have sticker shock and can’t afford things – but maybe I’ll be surprised.
My Mom came from Santa Fe last week to my event. I think she's only been to one in 5 years! We had great weather Fri/Sat, but sadly got rained out Sunday. Luckily, I made the decision to tear down Sat. night as we had 50 mile an hour winds that would have leveled my tent and smashed up some of my art. I hated making that decision and not doing the three days, but I think it was the right one. Believe it or not it’s draining to converse for 10 hours a day for these shows. In real life sometimes I don't see other people for weeks - just the hubby and pet clan, so it can be exhausting, but it’s a good exhaustion.
Thursday my mom and I hit the open road for a little "girls road trip" back to Santa Fe and we will see what trouble we can get into – with money in my wallet …. Anything can happen!
With two trips planned and getting these other works done I’ll be busy. So, I look forward to a leisurely drive back to Santa Fe and I'm sure I'll find some Arroyo Junkers to share with you when I return. It's been too long since I posted those.
Have a wonderful week everyone I’ll be catching up later.
