the benefit was great! the art was really good and inspiring, the music was great, we sold lots of art straight out & the silent & live auction items did well. all 3 of these pieces sold outright, and my silent auction piece to boot! yay!
i am so inspired. i remember going to hannah's and being impressed with how nice everyone was to me- miss no one. it's sort of funny being on the planning committee now, therefore looked at as someone who has a clue (true or not). there are young women with art that blows me away who have no idea how good they are and who are so happy to have someone say their work is good. it's so easy to be nice to someone and encourage them.
i can't believe that some of these gals don't know how good they are. it also surprises me how much good art doesn't sell in any given show just because it's not the right audience. it takes a lot to put something that is so much yourself out there and have it not sell and keep doing it and stick to your guns with the art and the price.
bedtime- if i can post i will, otherwise be back monday!
