What a weekend. The weather was fantastic. I was honored and humbled to be part of this event and share the experience with so many wonderful and talented artists. It was great.
My dear friend and mentor, Lexi Erickson, asked me to design the poster and post card for this show. I happily agreed and the top picture is the poster in its final form.
Not many people can say they have done a show with Harold O’Connor. I had the good fortune to be in a show with two of my idols, Harold O’Connor and Lexi Erickson.

I don’t think my feet were touching the ground in that picture! And both Harold and Lexi signed a copy of the poster for me….now that’s going to be framed and hung in my studio as a reminder of a very special event and the great inspiration both of these talented individuals are to me. Thank you Harold and Lexi.
The crowd was wonderful. I believe all of us had good sales and hopefully that is an indicator that things are turning around in the art world when it comes to the sales of our works.
Several of you have asked that I post pictures of my work that sold. Well, here goes…. Oh, and all of the photos were taken by Dan, so I’m just going to say at the beginning of all of these great photos to follow: Photo Credit ~ Daniel Krucoff.
My first sale of the day was a pair of reticulated earrings I called Ocean Waves. Great to have that first sale of the show. How fitting that the first sale was also the reticulated silver that I made during my workshop with Harold in May of this year!
The next sale was a pendant and a pair of earrings.

Tribute to Pandora Series
Yes, that’s right, one of my bracelets sold. A multitude of beautiful stones, hours of work, and its beauty was not lost on the person who bought this. She has a discerning eye, as did many of the shoppers this weekend. Coupled with that was an appreciation for the art that this bracelet represents. She also purchased Break Through (pictured below) and I know my pieces have gone to someone who understands. Actually, all of my pieces went to people who got it. What a wonderful affirmation for an artist.

Pretty incredible. The show, the weekend, the crowds, the talented artists, the beautiful venue, the experience….ALL exceeded my expectations. I truly believe I found my audience. It has infused me with new enthusiasm and the belief that I am on the right path as an artist. It is my wish for all of you, my friends, to find that path we are destined to follow.
Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
