Back from Dallas again.....notice a theme???

Yes, I am back again from Dallas for the last time this year. This was the third time I have been in Dallas since April. Think about it....that is at least 66 hours driving time. If only I was paid buy the mile!!!! I love Dallas and good ol' St Louis could learn a lot from Dallas about how to build a good highway system.

I had a great time in Dallas and I had some of my former clients stop in and say hello. But I did make a big fopaux, I had a couple stop in and I simple did not register that I had met them before and he was not happy I did not recognize them. I felt really badly but I do see thousands of people while doing shows and have hundreds ( think about all the Daily Series buyers) of clients. After they left, it clicked and I remembered them and as I recall he was not dressed in full business attire as he was this weekend. A little to late on my part. So if you are reading this....please know that I did feel badly.

I am tired but.... home

I just arrived home from Dallas a few hours ago and I am tired. But, I had a great surprise for dinner. Verne and the kids were all ready for my late-Mother's day ( I cannot believe I missed another big event this year). Parker and Anaïs wrote me the most wonderful letters. Oh, I love my kids so much.

Verne took the kids shopping and I would have been happy with just the 59¢ box of Lemonheads but they went jewelry shopping too. I do not wear necklaces EVER but I LOVE bracelets. So they found me two great pairs of earrings and a fantastic bracelet. Watch for me wearing the bracelet at my next show.

I am off to hang for a gallery show tomorrow. The opening is on Friday and I am going to miss it. I am sending my husband and daughter to represent me since I will be at another show that same weekend out of state. Parker is excited because he is going to his first show alone with there is a Ripley's believe it or not museum in the same city and I will find time to take him.

Graduation Present - Daily 4-29-08

Today, I sold this rather fun Daily painting. It will be given as a graduation present in a few weeks. I have to say it is a wonderful feeling knowing that someone values your work enough to give it as a gift.

Gallery Show

I am off to Dallas again for a art show and when I get back I will be racing around hanging art for a gallery show in Belleville, Il. I am looking forward to the show. The title is "Forces of Nature" and is a two women show with a wonderful fiber artist named Jacque Davis
