Art in the Heart in Vancouver.......was FUN!

My first outdoor festival! I know I made some mistakes (not the least of which my tent was initially too short, but luckily Mike Rangner & Kevin Weaver helped me get it right). Many of my painting friends showed up (and I sincerely thank you!) It was great to see you there. The event was a lot of work...but totally worth it. I got to visit with a steady stream of art appreciators and as an added bonus I sold some paintings too! BIG THANKS to Art on the Boulevard (Kevin Weaver)!

Your paintings looks so great together. No wonder you sold paintings. And it looks like it was such a nice day. I've never done an art fair, but seeing your experience makes me think of trying it!

Congratulations Celeste on such a successful event! Your work looks amazing and I loved all the photos. The last portrait of you was fantastic!

Celeste,

I was so pleased to meet you! Your work is so much better to see in real life rather than through a computer screen! My friends and I thought the event was well done and well attended.

Congratulations on surviving and thriving at an outdoor fair. They are more work than most realize - you deserve some rest, now.

Your art looks great in the booth.

Congratulations on your sales! It looks like a lot of fun, thanks for all the pics, almost like I was there. I can imagine you are exhausted after all the prep, the set up and just the emotional excitement of your first outdoor fair! You deserve a little time off now!

Thanks for posting all the pics. The booth looks like a great space and shows your stuff really well. Your paintings look as wonderful as always, but I gotta also say, I love your frames!

Take a nap.

I'm glad it was a great experience. I'm glad you posted the photo of the in-progress painting and model. Attendees must have enjoyed seeing that.

Sounds like the day was a success on several counts: connections, exposure, and sales.
Congratulations, Celeste ~
Rest now, put your feet up, pamper yourself.
You deserve it!

Your booth looks like you've done this outdoor festival thing many times. I did it once, and I agree with you, it is hard work. Great job and congrats on your sales.

Congrats on your successful venture, Celeste! The collection of paintings looks terrific hanging together. It was good to see you in action in the photos.
Hmmm...that last photo of you would make a great portrait.....
