Hellooooo ...anyone out there?

Feeling like I'm getting back into my painting again. This past week I was able to finish a painting, photograph it and send it off to my framer . I have always worked with more discipline when I know I have a deadline, even if it it is a self imposed one. I am scheduled for a solo show, in October. I inventoried my current work and know I have enough to mount a strong show but simply feel I need to add newer work at this point.
What is lacking right now is my marketing.
I have not been out on the summer tent show circuit this season because of the need to be at my bakery/cafe, The Cookie Cab. I am curious to hear from other artists who did go out and brave this unrelenting heatwave and get feedback as to crowds,sales etc. I'm feeling a bit out of the loop and missing the give & take I always enjoyed during the art shows....anyone willing to share their experience from outdoor shows this season?

hi Helen,

Did you know about the 2011 Monmouth Festival of the Arts? Just Google "Monmouth Festival of the Arts" and you should get all the info. Deadline to enter is Dec. 13 and entry can be made via CD.
Glad you're painting again!
