Phew! The dust is starting to settle, in the aftermath of the TOAE. Overall I’d have to say I had a terrific show. I sold eight of my new encaustics, which not only lines the coffers for a while, but is extremely encouraging in terms of the more abstracted direction my work has taken.
The weather was hot — as always! — and the show was exhausting and physically demanding (as always! — artists must take home their work each night… re-hang in the a.m.) — but the crowds were fantastic, and visitors to my booth were full of wonderful comments and appreciation for my work. Many, many people were interested in a further understanding of the encaustic process — which is truly fascinating — so I will publish a page in my blog on that shortly.
Thanks to all who attended, and to numerous friends who stopped by to say hi.
