Memorial Day weekend - Let the summer season begin!  (my favorites time of the year)

Whoo, Hoo!

We just checked Surtex off the list of this year.  Can I tell feels good!  The show went really well.  Antonio was on his own this year.  It turned out that I was unable to go which actually worked out just fine!  Making all the new work, preparing the booth set up, getting all the promotional stuff ready & then doing the whole meet and greet at the show can really wipe you out.  This was our 11th Surtex so I guess I've earned a year off.  I ended up making way too many banners I had 12 but only had room for half of them once Antonio saw the booth.  (I can get stuck on things so this drove me crazy)  Roll with the punches... right?

Each year I put together a little brochure of some sort as a take away for attendees.  I include a bit about my intention for the art I make & highlight a couple recent projects.

Here's the front of the accordion fold brochure I put together for the show.

Here's the back.

I hope the show was successful for all the designers attending. It really does require such effort & commitment to build a strong body of work with a point of view.  There are good years & bad years for all of us. (even when the work is good)  I'm happy this was a good one!  Now I roll into my busiest time of the year.  Big exhale!

Hear Ye, Hear Ye...

Headed to New York for Surtex in just 5 days!

Here is my flyer for this year based off a monarchy piece I painted.  I'm also showing the banner I made from it.  This is our 10th year exhibiting at the show. (my time flies) We have lots of great new art available.  If your attending Surtex stop by.  We'd love to see you!

Ahh, Summer!

I'm starting to see that summer is right around the corner.  Surtex is too.  The show is always fun to go to but I must say it is a BIG relief once it's over with!  June is my favorite month of the year- full of all the possibilities of early summer.  With lots of deadlines coming up my goal is to find time to feel the sun, swim with my son, dine outdoors & run through the grass.  It was a long winter & I'm grateful summer is almost here!  As an adult don't you miss that last day of school feeling?  I know I do.
