I have been in such gratitude lately. Ever since John and I packed up my booth from Boquete's Holiday Shopping Bazaar on Friday, November 25th and took our tired bodies home, I have been giving thanks.
My artwork was VERY well accepted into the Boquete community! I was selling all day long, people asked for brochures and business cards. I developed an interest list for an upcoming encaustic workshop after the first of the year. I sold three encaustic paintings and have a commission for a 4th. In addition, of the 15 whimsical bling pieces I showed, I sold all 4 bling bowls, 2 bling balls, one hanging cross and one standing cross. With orders for more! How gratifying, how fulfilling this is to me.
Thanks to all my friends and new customers for supporting my efforts! These are the paintings I took and the circled ones sold. The woman who bought the upper left one also ordered a companion piece to go with it:
I have two more shows to do. One is a "Girls and Gab" invited event at a private home on December 1st, and the next one is Holiday Bazaar, Part II on December 10th. Then I hope to rest, relax and get ready for 8 family members coming in for the Holidays.
I will keep you posted on how the future events unfold. I'm also excited to build my first encaustic workshop. I'm able to take proceeds from my sales and purchase additional encaustic tools to build out a well-stocked encaustic workshop. Let's see, I need a new heat gun, another griddle, more paints, more beeswax, ooooh, maybe I'll get that butane torch I've been wanting, and.......ahem.....talk to you later!
