Thanks so much, Jane.
I have been trying to use the brief face of fame to do demonstrations at the fair. I have done three so far, but because of the venue they have been animals...

Thank you!
I am at a lull in my demonstrations, but have started announcing everywhere I can think of. This is the PERFECT time for small Christmas gifts and I don't think people have awakened from the recession panic to remember they still need gifts.

I keep on plugging!

A few artists friends and I are renting the local community hall, getting a big Christmas tree, inviting some wineries to show off their wares (and my wine labels) and we're going to have a Christmas art show and sale. I'll bring a pretty chair, a lamp and my easel and do some onsite portraits. That should get them inspired to purchase gifts!
