|My booth at No Coast Craft-o-Rama.|
My fabric fat quarters were equally popular with customers. I cannot believe how many quilters there are! Many people bought them for their quilter friends who said they can never have too big of a 'stash' and admire unique designer patterns.
I get asked how I create my art and have a booklet to show them how I draw everything by hand in pencil first and then scan it into the computer and redraw all the lines into solid flat color shapes in layers that resemble a silk screen print. It makes more sense to see the actual pencil drawings and digital stages of the process.
I always take notes at the shows of what people like or want to see next year. One guy wants to see two more cardinal illustrations to make a grouping. Many people buy multiple cards to group and frame and some want to see much larger prints in the future. It's always humbling to hear how they love my style and have my work framed in their home, or hear from bungalow home owners that they want to add some of my pieces to fit the architecture yet it looks modern to fit today's style. My mission is accomplished!
So thank you to all who came out to my shows this month. I enjoyed getting to meet you and see how you respond to my art. Now it will be fun to get back to creating new art for next year's show.
