Saturday night was the gala opening of the Artists in Business Art show at The Ink People in Eureka, CA. I am both high as a kite and pleasantly pooped, and grateful to Connie Rose for taking photographs. I had my camera with me, but didn't feel like fussing with it.
I was happy with the level of conversation I had with visitors who came to the show, and I have word of interest in one my pieces as well. Nothing like the thought of sales to make the night even more memorable for me.
Here I am enjoying a glass of red with fellow artists Joan Gold and Connie Rose. The three of us are continuing to meet once a month to talk about art/biz related topics after our business group ends this week. I'm really pleased to be continuing on the journey with them. Hard to believe those ten months have gone by so quickly, and it's so amazing to think about all that has changed in my life and my art during this time.
But today, Sunday, I am just basking. I wish you all could have been there to share in our accomplishments. There was a remarkable pool of talented artists in this group.
Many thanks to the Northcoast Small Business Development Center, -- and specifically Connie Lorenzo (for coordinating our group) and Mike Nerat (for being a patient and informative business coach to me) -- for putting this much needed service together for artists in our community.
