Today was a rainy day, the rainiest since I started selling my work at the Loretto two months ago. I thought it was going to be sunny then rain late afternoon, but New Mexico weather is very unpredictable, like Florida. No surprise, I left early like many vendors. It really takes the wind out of you when you're battling nature. It's a struggle sometimes just keeping the momentum and energy up. It's still a bit slow with traffic. I'm trying to improve my salesmanship, I'm not exactly sure what tourists want, except I don't offer $5 paintings. That's why I made magnets. But even those aren't selling like I wanted to see.
Meanwhile, since coming back from the Denver show, I have been creatively active, redoing and improving the color scheme on some of my paintings (that I'll post soon). I like the color direction I'm going. I would like to compose some animal paintings soon. I didn't get into the art shows in Boulder City, NV and Houston that I wanted, but I will focus more on local shows, including the Girls, Inc show I recently applied to. I haven't gotten in yet, but it would be a great opportunity to participate in. I have also posted some new work on my art portfolio site, so check it out!
