Hi people. My first Open house was a big success! Thanks to everyone who took the time to come check it out. I couldn't believe how many people came! It was so fun reconnecting with some familiar faces, and meeting new friends and a lot of locals-- some close neighbors I'd just not run into before. Towards the end of the day when things wound-down a little I finally had time to take a couple pictures.
The trail lady was looking especially rad in the sunshine. It was a beautiful day. We really lucked-out. (She's far from complete-- a work in progress.)
This Table is now going in my living room (for now anyway), to replace another I sold. That's one advantage of being an artist-- you can decorate with your own work, and switch stuff out when you feel like a change.
If you weren't able to attend, I do plan on making this an annual event, so you'll get another chance next summer. You missed my official artist get-up-- a rainbow silk sarong and a giant flower in my hair. Who knows-- maybe next year a black beret?
Now I have shows to get ready for and commissions to complete. I have tons of ideas for my upcoming shows, so stay tuned.
EDIT TO ADD: If any of you want to post links to pics of this event or related blog entries feel free to do so in comments. :)
