Starting off with a BANG!
|We're all bundled up in the tent today! But the cold front doesn't seem to stop our collectors from coming in! I'm finishing up this Aspen piece today.|
|My Puzzles are hot! I've been having fun signing them for collectors. They are a great gift for those puzzle lovers everywhere!|

My First Collectors of the Show!
Friday, January 11, 2013
|We installed a TV with a video that showcases the homes of collectors and where they have hung my paitings!|
|We put a pocket door leading into the "Viewing Room." It turned out fantastic--complete with red leather sofa and dimming lights!|
|I finally get to paint again! I'm starting on a new Aspen painting, 48 x 48.|
|That's the great thing about this art show. It's a "working" show. Not only do I get to meet some amazing collectors and Art appreciators...but I get to paint at the same time!|

Show Set Up: Day 2
Day 2: Walls are painted (except for the tower...I'll do that after we build the "viewing room." Floor completed. Today I'm painting the crown molding and base boards. I'll also paint the 20' wood beams that will span the booth and hold my lights.

Show Set Up: Day 1
Day 1: We arrived at the Show at 9 a.m. on Monday. We have until Friday at 4 pm to have the booth all finished up! That may seem like a lot of time to some...but trust me, building a booth from the ground up is not an easy task! All that is here when we arrived were the basic walls--the same walls they have been using for the past 23 years. Not in great shape. So first thing we did was patch, sand and paint the walls a nice shade of grey (same shade of grey I have in my studio back home). Then we laid down the floor. We've used this flooring for a few years in a row now, and I love it. It's garage flooring, thus indestructible! It pieces together quiet easily. The only really complicated part are the edges. The wall angles change every year, so we have to cut the floor to fit.
