Whew! I'm Tired But Happy!!














The Rogue Speaks:

Another "Holidazzle" is now behind us. That's the name of the Southern Arizona Arts Guild winter exhibition and sale. This is the eighth year, and they just keep getting better and better! My BFA and I were co-chairs for this event. We have been as busy as ants since last Thursday morning when the artists checked into the venue with their work. Our reception was Friday night, and the place was packed. Just give a patron a couple of glasses of wine and turn'um loose. Needless to say, it was a financial success. Saturday sales were even better, and we broke our Sunday sales record yesterday. So today a few stragglers came to collect their paintings and then Diane and I went out to breakfast. I came home to my two furry children and we hugged and kissed and then collapsed in the recliner.

It's amazing what a little eye makeup can do! You should have seen me this morning! I looked like walking death!

Okay, I have no idea what happened here! I was typing a message and then it just disappeared on me! It was the weirdest thing. Judie, maybe you have ghosts on your blog! That could be really cool.

As I was saying, you look gorgeous, my friend! So absolutely lovely! Congratulations on the success of another Holidazzle. The displays looked fabulous. I wish I was closer. I'd be there with bells on.

My comment disappeared as well.

You look beautiful - guess they had to put you on cash, so as not to be unfair competition for the artwork!

Judie said...

Everybody, you are all just too sweet! I had to look better because I could not have looked any worse while we were installing the show! People kept asking me if I was sick!!
I had a full day today, but tomorrow I am sleeping in!!

This looks like a ton of work, but loads of fun. My friend, the potter, does this every year, and he says it's so much work. But I love the collective feel of it. It's a good excuse for artists to get together and support one another, and hopefully make some money.
You look great!

Judie said...

The collective feel is so important. This year we had a front room and a back room. Both were equally beautiful with art. We had tables set up in the back room where artists could work and gather to talk. I brought some snacks for them, and that room was the busiest place! Customers love to watch artists work! Both rooms were very successful, saleswise! I would like to have the same set-up next year. It was by far the most productive show we have ever had!!

That looks like such an amazing time...I would love to attend something like that! And I agree that you look beautiful in the photo!

I have just begun to paint...I've always wanted to and finally thought well, why not just try? I probably am not any good really but I love it and hopefully will learn as I go.:)

Have a great day Judie!

Judie said...

Colleen, I hope you have a wonderful time in your painting class. You just might surprise yourself! Thanks for the nice comment.

Nora Johnson said...
