This was the endless week!Â A full week of back to school mornings with my son that followed an intense nonprofitable weekend at the Tiburon Festival.Â All I can say is that I am thankful for my part time job teaching art in Sonoma and that I am looking forward to my regular pay checks! Another small blessing is that one of my painting students that I teach to has told several of her friends about me and they have arranged to take a one day workshop. Â If they like it, they might take more.
Though the Tiburon Festival turned out to cost me more then I made, I am glad I did it. Â It was my firstÂ festival where I had to bring my own display system, set up and sell among other artists.Â Â I lost a sale because I did not have a credit card machine and I learned that I need to create a more interesting display to pull people in (such as painting a demo).Â Â I did get a lead from another artist about where to get good deal on a credit machine.
Part of this last week was spent setting up my classroom and this next week I start teaching and I start grad school.Â Life is winding up!
(Wendy’s dream is still to become a influential international artist, but she left 8 Women Dream in March of 2010 to complete grad school.Â She is still a strong supporter of 8 Women Dream and you will see her in the comments on the blog.)
