We just did the Gumtree Festival in Tupelo, Mississippi this past weekend. Tupelo is one of the nicest cities, and the people are ALL so nice. Gumtree is one of my favorite shows, and once again, I did AWESOME there..(only a tiny bit down from last year, and not enough to make a difference). THANK YOU TUPELO!!!
This upcoming weekend, I will be in Mentone, AL at the Rhododendron Festival!! Come out and see me. Live Artfully!!

Nature Boy is busting out too, with some fantastic art of his own!! He is now doing metal quilting of sorts..hard to explain..I'll just steal a picture of his from Facebook, and show you all...
A woman named Dawn posted a question in comments..it was..."How on earth do you produce so many so quickly are the back ground prepared and then you get to painting?"
Dawn--Thank you for your comment first of all!! Second..I do the backgrounds first..usually the first and second layers are all done as a group, then I do each painting individually. I think that I am able to paint like I do for 2 reasons. Number 1--CONFIDENCE. I don't think things out..I just do them...If I mess up, I just keep painting..I'm not afraid of what the end result is..and Number 2--I don't have anything to do on a daiily basis except paint, no kids at home, no animals to take care of..no TV to watch..hahah...so, I am in the studio basically from the time that I wake up, to the time I go to bed. I could probably paint a lot more if I did not play games on Facebook...hahahha. Ok..I have to run to the store..out of food...Live Artfully!!

I am so nervous..I really need to do shows all 12 months of the year..(Yeah, right..that is NOT going to happen)..but, after a break (especially a long one), I am like a new artist starting all over again. Combine that with the first show being a new place, and I'm stressed to the gills. But, it will all turn out ok...and in two weeks, it will be over...Live Artfully!!
