I believe that art sales were good generally too. The show was a personal success for me with all of my framed ribbon embroideries selling out and most of my art cards, bookmarks, and small landscapes. I had brought a bin full of pieces for the sales table and came home with a handful of items. One of my embroidered art pieces sold as well.
The set up committee had done a great job and the displays looked wonderful. After an afternoon at the art show and with the help of friends, I quickly packed up, brought my work home, then hurried out to another church where my choir - Shout Sister - was having a concert to raise funds for that church's foundation which helps people in dire need in Canada and abroad. We sang two sets to a packed house and received a standing ovation. What a day!
Needless to say, I came home last night satisfied and exhausted. My eyes are still having trouble in bright lights and a few times I felt a little woozy especially at the art show. But I didn't want to wear my sunglasses preferring to be able to see the lovely work of my fellow artists.
I didn't take many photos because I spent most of my time chatting with friends and customers. I so enjoyed hearing the enthusiasm of visitors to the show and especially their generous comments about my work.
Now on to the subject that Canadians love to talk about.......the weather.
I took these photos in my backyard over the last 10 days and it struck me that this photo journey is, in a nutshell, our Canadian weather of late - ie. if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes.
|Brrr....this wind is chilling.|
|Woohoo! It's spring at last!|
|Mmm....I think I will have a bath.|
|Look! The grass is turning green...|
|Good grief! How do I peck through all this ice?|
|The next day nobody came|
|Except for this large Cooper's Hawk|
Yesterday it rained. Today it's gloomy but a little warmer.....maybe spring is here???
