Upcoming Shows and Workshops

This last Saturday I was a vendor at Art and Soul.  What an amazing week-long event this is for so many women who come from all over the country to participate in all kinds of art and mixed media classes.  I am hoping that next year I can take a workshop or two and do the vendor show again as it was so much fun being around all these creative women.  Everyone loved Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint and the colors.  I also had a chance to sell some of my antique textiles, trims, buttons, and tassels.  I will be selling more of this at the upcoming show at the Washington County Fair Complex in Hillsboro.

Before the show, I was busy painting color cards to sell.  This is a time consuming process, but when it is finished the colors look so true, and it is easier to really see the paint and all the exquisite colors Annie has created in her palette.

I sell these in my shop and soon they will be listed on my website too. 

This is the new paint lid that just came into the shop.  It is going to be great!  Now no more mess or waste around the rim of the paint can. 

I have so many lovely things in my shop for sale, including this wonderful passion flower painting that was done on a board.  I would guess it is late 19th c. but it is such a beauty in form and color and composition.

In the weeks ahead I will be posting more photos of upcoming Chalk Paint workshops as well as holiday-themed workshops.  So please check in periodically to see what is going on in the shop and out of the shop at the various shows.
