Thank You!



Good morning, everyone! I wanted to say a very big "thank you" to everyone who encouraged me to participate, and to those who came by to see me during Birmingham's Artwalk. I truly appreciate your kind words, phone calls and visits. It was a great experience, and I am thankful to have been able to participate. (I was thrilled that my tag read "Artist - Artwalk 2009"!) I am amazed and humbled by people's reactions to my work, and it is always interesting to hear their thoughts and the stories they share.


A few pictures....

Morris Avenue - our booth location



A cool doorway



Our booth was in a great location - outside in a parking lot near refreshments and entertainment. I shared this area with several other incredibly talented and kind artists. We so enjoyed meeting them and sharing information about other regional art shows, online sales venues and even simple tips about setting up and taking down our booths. You may learn more about three of the other artists I met, Ahmad Austin, Mary Margaret Binkley, and Tracey Lewis, by clicking on their names below to visit their websites.

Here are a few more photos from our weekend....

Bagpipers - Amazing Grace was my favorite song they played - haunting


Again, a very heartfelt thank you to everyone who made Artwalk possible for me this year - my incredibly supportive husband, my parents, my sister-in-law, my Aunt Linda and my friends who keep telling me "Yes, you can do this!" (especially my Etsy POE peeps) Thank you for believing in me!

Thank you so much, ladies! Putting my work out there is a big step for me. We didn't sell very much, but at least we tried. And hopefully the exposure will help. Thank you for stopping by!
