Happy to say the show at Unicoi State Park was FABULOUS! Where did all those people come from??My location was great. Even the lighting did not suck too badly..No complaints and it is relatively close to home. Met many nice people and had some lovely booth neighbors. Yeah- I am soooo excited!!! Clearly a lot more mermaid bangles are in order..Big Hit..Next show is in Woodstock GA the first weekend in March. They are now offering indoor spaces so I will give it a try. Bear in the Square in Dahlonega and Decatur Art Festival are off the show list as they do not understand fabulous..Their loss. I have added a Dunwoody show Lemonade Days for the April 21 and 22 slot and I am researching May shows so check back on the show list. Thanks everyone!! Lou
I just changed the main photo on the website to this as I really like the look and intend to do a lot more of it. Heavily influenced by Zentangles.
The report on the show at Brasstown Valley Resort- not so good. Older shoppers on fixed incomes.. Lots of really great stuff for sale (metalwork, frames, glass, pottery) and a lovely promoter who was great to work with- Robin Roberts. Wish I could do more of her shows but the trip up there was mountainous- gorgeous but perilous in my little car. Anytime I see people selling crochet items near me I kinda panic too. Especially crochet towels- what gives?? There were lots of handtowels made into angels too... AARGGHH!! Saturday it was slippery getting to the Resort and I am sure that influenced traffic. Next weekend Helen GA which is not quite so far away. Fingers crossed that there will be tourist traffic in Helen.
Clearly, I am not a film maker.. But this youtube video does show all sides of the new mermaid bangles. You won't see me doing cats or Betty Boop but sometimes I like filling requests. More peacock feathers are coming as they have been hugely successful. . Peace signs and skulls have also been requested. Not going there either. Also having fun with some zentangle designs with black on natural and a gold fleck finish.
These are textured pine over which I have gold metal leafed and antiqued the surface. The gold leafing is a composite metal . Sorry- no real gold here. The look is fabulous if I do have to say so myself. First show reaction will be 2nd weekend in February. Mermaids and butterflies and, of course, more florals to follow. Been very busy.. Lou
Yea! We now have a great gold and silver. I am working on antique versions. But shine is good for now. Some great new colors- Orange, Blue, and Spring Green ( the new neutral). And here is a little sample of some hand painted ones...Check out the website for more at www.huppkewoods.com.
