What a GREAT weekend.
At the Spring Green Art and Crafts Fair I took FIRST place in the Painting Category. The prize included a Blue Ribbon (…and good prize money)! That makes two prize ribbons in 5 shows!
…AND I sold two original paintings and two giclees to a corporate buyer and my art is hanging in their new 11,000 seat auditorium or one of their new farm scene themed corporate buildings. Hundreds of their 5,500 employees and thousands of their clients will see my work every year.
One of my paintings is going to be featured on the cover of an INTERNATIONALLY known literary magazine and there will be a two page spread about me inside (I can’t tell you the details yet – hush-hush).
I was contacted by a very nice gallery in Benton Harbor, MI that wants to carry my originals and prints.
And I spent two days visiting cemeteries, churches and talking to people to do some genealogy research on my German Catholic roots.
WOW. Simply WOW.
