Here in Santa Cruz, California like in many cities across the country, we have an art event called "Open Studios" every fall. We are endowed with a plethora of great artists here in our little paradise. The artists who choose to participate opens their homes or studios to the public for 2 of the 3 weekends that the event is held. It is a chance to meet art enthusiasts and exhibit your work! It also can generate some sales!
One of my goals for 2018 is to participate in this event for the first time. Having said that, I am feverishly producing inventory daily if possible. A goal of two paintings a week is very doable for me. Another goal is to enter my work in open juried exhibitions. I have had the delightful opportunity to participate in my first exhibition where I also was awarded Excellence in Pastel!
Thank you for following me on this wonderful creative journey! I think I finally found what I want to be when I grow up!
