Looking out my back door… you can’t tell from this but it was raining.
Well, I have to say I cannot believe it is June already. I have been busier than than ever, but not much happening in the studio lately. The Art Fair I exhibited in a few weeks ago was very disappointing, mostly due to the weather. Saturday was a total washout and Sunday the crowd was thin. My tent leaked off and on so it kept me busy drying everything off periodically. I have to decide if I am going to invest in a new one or just stop doing outdoor shows. It is a tough call for me, but I have to decide how my energy and money will be best spent to serve my goals. There are lots of factors I need to consider. Shows have become so expensive to do(when I started 30 years ago,it was so much easier to make a profit). Now that I am older it is also physically more challenging as well and my husband works weekends now so I have to do them alone.
Oh yes, this weekend I was supposed to do a show I was really looking forward to and had to cancel. My dear Aunt Mary passed away so there was a funeral to attend. And it rained again.
The thing is, I love doing them. I enjoy the personal contact with patrons and other artist so much, not to mention the friends I have made all across the country, it will leave a big empty space in my life.
So, I have a huge decision to make and a lot to consider. Any thoughts would be welcome.
