Art Fairs – Not for Me

I never planned on doing art shows of the booth fair type.  I inadvertantly started doing art fairs at the end of 2002 -- sort of in neighborhood solidarity when some folks in my neighborhood started organizing the first Cherrywood Art Fair. At that time, I was reluctant to put myself and my work out in the art world.   The encouragement to participate in the first Cherrywood Art Fair was a nice, neighborly beginning to getting my work out there to be seen (and often purchased) -- and it helped to open doors for showing my work in other venues.

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I have not a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.
