Art In The Park
The shading became all the unexpected things I learned that made the whole thing come together as a wonderful experience. I learned that there are still a lot of people out there than have not heard of Zentangle and there are only so many ways to explain it-LOL! I also found it very interesting how so many people thought my work was computer generated or a lithograph, and when they found out it was all hand drawn, pen and ink, original work, they had a whole new respect for the art. Meeting a lot of the other artists was great. So many travel around from show to show, city to city...incredible! I also found out that it makes you feel really good, when people other then your relatives and friends tell you how beautiful your art work is....defiantly the frosting on the cake!
My initials became my taking ownership over this whole new experience and meeting all of my objectives!
1) I got 62 email addresses for future students, and a lot of people that didn't put their name down took my card and/or flyer. One already emailed me for a private class.
2) I sold enough to cover my booth fee and quite a bit more.
3) I took a big leap of faith and put myself out there and was so glad I did.
4) It was a lot of fun!
A big thank you to all of my relatives and friends that came to the show!
I can't thank my husband, Doug and sister, MaryAnn enough for their help in preparing for the show, and helping me man my booth. They both were great (wearing the Zentangle T-shirts), setting up, staying the whole time, taking down, and never complaining about anything. I couldn't have asked for a better crew! Thanks also, to Rick and Maria (the founders of Zentangle...see www.zentangle.com ) for sharing this wonderful art with us and making another one of my dreams come true!
