FOLLOW MY ADVENTURES AT OUTDOOR SHOWS THROUGH MY BLOGS. I also blog regularly on www.artfairinsiders.com. I will try to keep this page current and fresh.
Ending the year 2011--Insights and thoughts Well this site has been up less than a months and I have got plenty of hits and sales--without being at a show. It shows great promise and I plan to offer special deals on new images, keep you posted where I will be showing, and keep you up on my world of art. 2012 holds great promise. Happy new year All!
Palm Harbor Art festival, downtown Palm Harbor,FL, Dec. 3-4,2011 Well, for years on this date I have done a lovely little show in Englewood,FL and made very little money, less than $700. So I figured why not do one nearby. That way if I die at the show,saleswise folks, I can at least sleep in my own bed at night. Eureka, I doubled my usual take from Englewood at the Palm harbor show. Only 75 exhibitors with sparse attendance both days. I met a lot of lovely people and sold to some great old customers. This site is a real help especially as a follow-up when you see me at a show. The economy is tough and people are just not spending much. I got great feedback from folks about my new work which involves images of graffiti as I find it around the country. I will be putting up a new page this week on my site. Look for the "header" that says new art. Aloha,nels.
