I am showing a few acrylic and watercolor pieces on this year's annual Artisans' Road Trip show. There are 41 artists showing work around the Iowa Great Lakes area and I am excited to be one of them. My show is at the Fieldstone RV park in the campground's community building. We keep our camper here year round so all I had to do was set up my work and put out the "Stop Here" signs.
One of my pieces, this watercolor painting, has been used for a few of the group's advertising media. It's fun when guests come in and recognize it right away. "Oh, there it is." or "Oh, I didn't realize there was a face in it... no, there are two faces."
Other than the reward of having gone through the process of getting ready for this show and then following through with it, I have made some wonderful contacts this weekend. Two different gallery owners have invited me to show my work in their galleries. Boy, now I truly have some work laid out in front of me.
