It’s been a long haul this summer. After the three month limbo which finally led to the move to my current home and studio, I had a long process of settling in. Such things are difficult for someone of my Canceran temperament. Since my home is central to all aspects of my expression, I felt the need to immediately get everything in order. As soon as my studio was set up, I wanted to hit the ground running. I made a stab at starting some new paintings, but I was too exhausted to feel creative enough to finish them. I wanted to see some progress in my career, so when I was invited to show at a metaphysical fair on the Oregon beach (Pathways to Transformation, in Yachats), I decided that, if nothing else, it would get me rolling and introduce me to a niche I’ve been wanting to discover. So I confined myself to the studio for a while to crank out some affordable art to sell at the coast.
I’m happy to report that the show went pretty well. It met my expectations of what I needed to make to recover my investment, and I got a lot of great feedback. The most amazing moment of the weekend was when two women discovered me and started buying out all my stuff, making nearly half of my sales within 20 minutes. I was so overwhelmed by the fact that people loved my work so much that they wanted to give a little something to everyone they knew. Whenever I have any doubts about my ability to manifest abundance through my art, I’ll remember this as a defining moment.
Above is a pic sent to me by Jackie Brown, a photographer who also had a booth at the fair.Â Incidentally, the fair was advertised primarily through New Connexions magazine (which featured my art on its cover for its May/June issue in both 2007 and 2008).
