08/08/2009: "Hazzah!"

The opening last night at the UAS Bookstore was really wonderful. I didn't think many people would show up because it's clear out in Auk Bay, as opposed to downtown where all of the other First Friday openings were taking place. However, I had an excellent turn out and sold 4 original paintings and 7 prints!

Plus, it was fun. They had hung the show early in the day, and someone had already purchased a painting hours before the opening started. That had a wonderful affect on me, all of my anxiety that nothing would sell went away and I could just enjoy myself. The staff at the bookstore were also fantastic...they took care of everything and all I had to do was show up.

Below are a couple of photos from the opening. They had smaller paintings on a display near my print bin, and in the second photo you can see my larger pieces hanging on the wall in the background.

I am so thankful for all of my friends and supporters who turned out for the're what keep me going as an artist!
