That,s real good mike. A lot of people will get to see your work. And I,m sure it will lead you to other things. I wish you all the best.

Great news Mike! I wish you the best of luck.

You may want to join some local art groups. They are a great way of getting information on art shows and getting your work into the galleries.

I know a lot of people here don't believe in art and craft shows, but that's a good way of selling your work. I do pretty good at the local shows around here. This past weekend I sold several pieces, and made some money.

Next weekend I'm off to another.

Check out the local paper and search the web for events. The vendor fees are usually low.

Next month is Warren Art League's gallery opening at the Warren, PA li
ary. I'll be displaying 4 paintings there. Glad I joined.

A few days into April now, how is it going? Hope it's working for you. My first ever exhibition had me very nervous as you are hanging yourself on a wall for others to make judgement calls on. You never loose this, you just get used to it.
Hang in there, and enjoy every minute of it

Thanks Geoff Erika Johnny,Karen and Joe . . .I just went and picked up my art from there yesterday .I have received a commission from a Church organizer to provide the conceptual art for her future tee shirt projects and have already completed the first final draft -she and her kids love it!!! I gave away a lot of business cards-had a bunch of proffessional flyers that I had made up using Adobe Illustrator .

The lady that runs the li
ary is a very nice and generous lady- and I think that she allows one artisan after another to exhibit in that li
ary and u know what? I don't really suppose she gets a whole lot out of it so I have decided to send her some flowers.She will receive them while at work (is this tacky?)
I want to make sure she knows that we artists appreciate folk like her and to make her feel as recognized as she has made me feel . .. Mike

Congratulations Mike!
It's wonderful that you getting this recognition and I'm sure it will lead to many sales of your designs and artwork in the furture!
As to whether sending flowers to the Li
arian is 'tacky"...NO! I think it is very gracious of you, and i'm sure she will be thrilled!!!!!!
WOOHOO on your commission! :D And wishing you much more deserved success!

Paint the light... it will come!
