Raising my Profile


   The last three weeks have been a blur of activity. First, Kimberly and I jointly participated in Fun Fourth in downtown Greensboro. The rain held off for most of the day and we had a steady stream of customers and onlookers. Kimberly's flowers were a huge hit. It was a real treat to watch people's faces as they first saw the colorful metal garden art.
   My paintings were well-received and I met many wonderful people throughout the day. I sold five pieces of art, including four of my Literary Birds.
   Two weeks later, Kimberly and I were back at City Market in downtown. It was the second gathering for the monthly event, and how it has grown. It went from 34 vendors to around 90. Once again, Kimberly's flowers sold well and I sold another Literary Bird. We were less fortunate with the rain as we were soaked by a 20-minute downpour. Still, we considered the night a success.
   Another bit of good news, I applied for and was accepted in the the Historic West End Arts Festival in Winston-Salem. I'm quite proud of this achievement, as it is a juried application process. To see the works of past particiapants made me feel very pleased I was deemed good enough to be a part of the 2013 lineup. This event will be on Sept. 14 in Winston-Salem.
   If you're interested in finding out more about this event, ask me, or go to the Historic West End Arts Fest Facebook page. Or, you can Google the event and see samples of artwork for this year's group of exhibitors.
   One last thing, Kimberly and I may be getting a booth at Design Archives in downtown Greensboro. I'll have more on that as we firm up that situation.
   Thanks for looking!
