'In any land what is there more glorious than sunlight! Even here in the desert where it falls fierce and hot like a rain of meteors, it is the one supreme beauty to which all things pay allegiance ... The chief glory of the desert is its broad blaze of omnipresent light.'

The good old times are back!

Artshow sales had slowed to a crawl last year and I was producing and selling only very small prints of my images. Luckily, the demand for those 6in x 8in versions, printed as giclees on canvas and gallery-wrapped, was very steady. They really are very cheerful and make great gifts.
But last weekends's show in Ventana (NE Tucson) brought a pleasant surprise: Overall the interest was great and lower end sales were steady, but by Sunday afternoon I had also sold three rather large (half sheet) original watercolors, two of them nicely framed.

They were all flower images, not unusual in late January when everybody is impatiently waiting for spring.
My other two original sales earlier this winter were architectural pieces.

I hope the show in SaddleBrook (at the Country Club) next Saturday and Sunday will be as good. I am definitely bringing lots of good originals and many prints to choose from. The trick there will be to wrap up all sales before everybody drifts away to Super Ball parties and to get Randy to help take down the display when the game has already started.
