Trade Fairs are great exposure.

The Oshkosh show was the inaugural setup for the new display panels, print bin, and service desk and I couldn’t be happier. By Kalamazoo, I knew how they went up and could celebrate the fact the panels were light and easy to carry into the venue, and hanging my work was faster than ever.

I began this painting of harvest time in the Midwest while I was at the Oshkosh show. This picture was taken on Sunday of the Kalamazoo show and seeing this, I can tell I am just about done. I love painting at these shows but it takes me so much time that I am rarely done in one, or two events.

The weekend in Kalamazoo turned out to be a great opportunity for visiting friends and building networking inroads, and of course I got to spend two days sitting and painting for the public. As it turned out, I had the opportunity to talk with several other artists and the wonderful conversations were exactly what I needed to take my work to the next level. Criticism, when it is done constructively, can be powerful. I am excited.
