Artisans in the Park art event!

YAY!!! So, this past weekend I had my very first art show. It ended up being small, but I had a good time nonetheless! Setting up and seeing my visions come into reality was a pretty cool thing in itself! I wanted to create a table with a fun atmosphere - and how could my girls NOT exude fun?!?
I picked fresh flowers from my own gardens, i used seshells and stones from my own wedding 2 years ago, made my own signs, had pamphlets and business cards - all of which were set up in a fun and cute way! I was so impressed!
Originally there were supposed to be more vendors but the first time the event was supposed to happen, it rained and was cancelled. So, this time around, not as many were available. It still made for a really good day though - the things that were there were incredible!

Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure! :)

Me setting up at 7:30am!

The final setup! I was so impressed! :)

A view with my flowers (pink and yellow in the back) and my mailing list table with the stamps and pamphlets! :)

And a view of the right side, with my tote bags and paints in the background! I love the colours!
So, the next event is on August 8th at the Petawawa public library from 12-3! I'm super excited! I also have a potential event in October but that's a bit away yet - I will let you all know when we get closer to the date! :)

A BEAUTIFUL new piece!!!

Alright, i'm really excited about this one! The original line drawing was made to be very versatile as far as what colour of ribbon people would want to support. I painted this one with a pink ribbon for Breast Cancer awareness. She turned out BEAUTIFUL! I don't usually do Angel Like beings - I have certain issues with Anything Angel-like. I can't touch any kind of Angel figurine without breaking or damaging it in one way or another! And there are too many times this has happened to me to just be coincidence! Examples:

1)I accidentally knocked the head off my moms Cherub figurine on Easter when I was 14. I broke my arm that same day. I tried to glue the head back on. I let it set overnight and when I awoke the next morning the head was on the floor....

2)I broke the wings off of at least 3-4 of my moms Cherub figurines.

3)I bought my mom an Angel snowglobe for Mothers day one year with the idea that it was behind glass and there's no way I could harm it. A couple weeks later there was a fog patch on the glass in front of the Angels wouldn't go away....

4)My sister, who thinks these 'issues' are ridiculous nonsense thought it would be funny one Christmas to take one of the hard plastic Angel tree ornaments and rub it all over my back. I just about lost my mind so she said "Here, we'll hang it at the bottom of the tree so even if it DOES fall off it can't break." About an hour after this we were placing presents under the tree and I accidentally bumped the Angel, it fell to the floor, and the wings broke clean off. I will never forget the look on my sisters face!

I asked a Psychic once about these "issues" which until then I was calling a curse, thinking I had done something wrong to warrant this, and she laughed and said that I just had funny energy. That makes sense to me but c'mon! EVERY Angel?!?

Anyway, that little blurb aside, I have an Angel/Fairy/Mermaid here for you! She's not yet for sale but I will be listing her soon on Ebay! When that happens I will post a link for you! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Artisans in the park = cancelled...but i have NEW WORK!

So, the Artisans in the Park event was cancelled yesterday due to rain....but not just rain. Thunderstorms and torrential downpour! lol! However, it was disappointing because it only rained from 6:30am-10am....the rest of the day was gorgeous!

BUT I do think I will be signing up for another event on August 8th, in Petawawa and I'll be looking into our local farmers market to see what can be done there! The event on the 8th has a contingency plan if it should rain!

I also have some new work to share with you all! I've been busy the last couple weeks trying to get ready for the event that never happened so now I have all this stuff!


Isn't she pretty! I should have more to show soon, including a gothic lovely and a ribbon beauty!

OH YES!!!! I also have my work hanging in 2 SHOPS in downtown Pembroke. Doghouse Ink and Thai Gardens! YAY!!!! Here's a link to the ART TOUR if you'd like to check it out (Click on 'art tour')

I will be back with updates a little later!

First up, I'm entering into my very first art event on Saturday, July 11th here in Pembroke, Ontario! Here are the details!

When:Saturday, July 11th
Where: Stafford Park, Pembroke, Ontario
What: Art Event (My very first table event!!!!)
Who: Maigan Lynn and other local artists!
Why: To support local artists (including me!!!! lol)

The event WILL be cancelled if it's raining so I'm crossing my fingers!

ALSO! I've entered into a downtown Pembroke art tour! My art will be showcased in one of the stores downtown - not sure which one yet but I will let you know! I submitted my information a little late so I won't be on the tour map but I will be on the tour website. The store options are between an organic soap shop opening up and a tatoo parlour. Either of which I would be completely ecstatic about!!!

So that's the news from me today! I will keep you all posted. The art tour will be going on all summer long so if you're in town, make sure to stop at Purvis Gallery, downtown Pembroke and pick up a copy of the art tour listings!
