Great sales at Lakeside

    The weather was hot and rainy with biting flies but it was a terrific weekend. On Friday I painted until 11 am, a scene of Lilys and the lake. I was so hot with the heat that I had to take a cold shower and rest a bit. That evening I set up to sell but did not sell anythiing as most people were going to the concert. Then I found out that both my entries to the Katherine Crampton show sold.
    Thursday was another hot day but painted in the Pavilion under cover and watched and painted the racing sail boats. That night I sold 2 paintings.
    Sunday I painted the boat show, got moved 3 times due to tents being put up and then a large boat was pulled in front of my scene. I did take a photo and then winged it. That afternoon I sold 13 paintings. They were all 8x8 and 8x10, some unframed , some framed. So excited about that. Some of the paintings that sold below. I need to photoshop them, crop, etc.

    I have learned so much from my online workshops with Johannes Vloothaus. Two years ago I went to this show and sold nothing. This year took a lot of the old paintings and sold them with no frames. Just very exciting.
