Scratchy throat, burning eyes, on meds .. again .. not a good day. Never-the-less I forced myself to hit the art fair. It was just one block from my house. I hadn't been out of the house for a few days. I had to try. It was a struggle.. but I made it with a few stops along the way to breath.
Thank you Universe. You did it again. I got a good butt whipping from a few old friends....yes.. I needed it. You are right. I need to produce more. Thank you for validating me. You told me I had talent. You told me I was an artist. Having the rest of the day and evening to mull these various comments over, I realized - that's all I really ever wanted to hear. I have the ideas. I have the ability. I just needed for someone to say it... so thank you again Universe. You never let me down. Now I just need to carve out some time each day and get back on track.
In between my walks, breaks, visits and butt whippings, I managed to see some really cool art. Tho I did not get a lot of pictures, here are just a few.
Wow! This work was really cool. Metal zippers bent and twisted into all kind of cool things. I especially loved the vases. Yep, that tall white vase is made from zippers!

Then there are the gals from Detroit Doll Face. I just love their work. . . everything from Morticia Adams / Vampira pillows to cool knitted stuff to jewelry and oh so much more.
OMG! Desiree Kelly, blew me away. She was easily my favorite artist of the day. Her work is unbelievably spectacular! Unfortunately, these photos do not do the paintings justice.
Depending on my allergies and how I feel tomorrow, maybe I'll go back for more art fair. If not, it may just be me and my pillow. Either way, I'll be making moves to create something new.
