You remember that I had a booth at an art and craft show in Alpine, CA several weeks ago? Well, a woman saw my sign and sample for custom pet totems and ordered one of her little dog, Sophie. I could tell right away that Sophie was very special to them. They had a small photo album with just pictures of Sophie in it.
They were also describing their backyard and we discussed ways for them to display her portrait. After some debate and deciding, they went with a tile portrait mounted on metal with a chain so that they can hang her outside on their stone wall, but still be able to move it around as they please if necessary.
I have also been busy making more pieces to show at art faires this summer. I finished several last week that I had available at the Art & Wine in the Pines show in Crestline on Saturday. And I am working on more for a show that I am doing called Art on Millionaire's Row in Altadena.
There is an artists' reception on Friday night from 6 to 9 where you can meet all of the artists and purchase some art. If you are around this weekend, please stop by and say hi. The actual show is from 10am to 6pm on Saturday in the Library parking lot. The weather should be perfect for it!
