Lazy Days Cary wrap-up

The weekend of August 26-28 was a wonderful if hot weekend. Jason Williams was new to the festival, but managed to make an impact during peak traffic hours.  He sold another original watercolor within hours of the festival’s opening. And plenty of prints as well!  I brought out the Exterminati, but this time I added […]

Artsplosure 2016!

We have been up until 1 am or later for days now to prepare for Artsplosure! Our last shows were such a hit that we were left in bad shape leading into this show.  The printer is working furiously.  John has been painting furiously.  I have been ordering, tagging, and bagging furiously.  Last year was […]
