Homosassa Springs Show

Our first art show of the season opened today! It's at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park, in Homosassa Springs, Florida. This is always a great show - we don't have to share it with any other artists! It's strictly a show for the Citrus Watercolor Club. And, it's indoors, so we don't have to worry about the weather. Of course, we still need good weather, so people will want to come out to the park! So, of course, the temp was in the high 70's today! We have somewhere in the neighborhood of 40-50 artists that participate, so there is an abundance of fabulous paintings!

Another good thing about this show -- we don't have to be there every day for two days! We rotate the people at the desk several times a day. They take all the money and keep the books straight - then the watercolor club sends us a check (minus 20% that we give back to the park) for everything we sold! I was there for the first couple of hours this morning, and we were selling stuff like crazy! Very exciting! By the way, first up on the desk were - (from the left)
Barbara Kerr, Jeanne Conrad and Susie von Ammon. Thanks, Ladies!

And, since I got to set up the evening before, I got a prime spot for my browse box, cards, prints and bookmarks! I didn't win a ribbon this year, but I'm going to try to get pictures tomorrow of the winners. The talent in this club is amazing!
