I'm looking forward to next weekend. This will be my first ever outdoor arts festival. I'm borrowing a tent and gathering up all the artwork I have and heading out at the butt crack of dawn on Saturday morning to set up.
The First annual West Greenville Arts Festival will be held in the Pendleton Street Arts District in West Greenville. All of the studios and galleries will also be open. The music and entertainment will be top-notch. The food and Juried Show and raffle and kid's area and of course, the ART will be amazing! Please stop by my tent and say hello! See you there!

I'm on the planning committee for the first annual West Greenville Arts Festival. So, today I'll be taking posters around the North Main Street area and asking businesses to hang them. Then I'm off to buy a ton of construction paper, glue sticks and crayons for the Children's Area. It's going to be a fabulous festival! Over 75 artists (I'll have an artist's tent there, so come see me!), live music and entertainment, food, a juried show, raffles, a self-guided stroll through the district to see all of the open studios and businesses and of course the huge Children's Art Area that I'm working on.... It's going to be a FUN day!

I just rented and moved into my own little corner of an art studio in the Pendleton Street Arts District in Greenville, South Carolina. I'm sharing the studio with two very talented artists: Suzanne Vitti and Ben. My easel is set up right near the window, so I can paint in the natural light.
Last night was "First Friday" art walk. We had quite a crowd come through, considering it was Labor Day weekend and many people were away. "First Fridays" is always on the first friday of every month. All the studios and galleries in the district are open and displaying a wide range of incredible art. Some of the studios have live music and many serve free food and drinks. All up and down the Arts District you find special events, book signings, guest artists, raffles and nice people. It's the hottest party in town!
I sold a painting last night.....life is good.
