Woohoo for awards!

Hello my dear friends :) How are you doing? Hopefully well. My first exhibit in San Francisco went very well. I got a ton of good feedback and sold one of my pieces. I absolutely loved watching peoples reactions to my work. The whole thing was so surreal to me, but in a very beautiful way. It was an out of the body experience. I had to take a step back and tell myself that yes, you really have made it this far. Yes, people really do like your stuff...and most of all, yes, you can be still and enjoy this moment. Words just can't explain how unbelievably lucky and blessed I feel. I will never forget my first exhibit/gallery experience.

Now for the upcoming exhibit. I dropped the paintings off with the Sun Gallery in Hayward weekend before last. It's a HUGE gallery and the people there are very nice. I have really enjoyed working with them so far. I am reading and signing the contract tonight which is huge. It's my first contract and is one of those slap-you-in-the-face, your-dream-is-really-happening moments. Feels really good :) So, if you are in Hayward Ca from Oct 30th- Nov. 21st, stop by the Sun Gallery and see my work, along with other Day of the Dead pieces.

I will be posting videos of both exhibiting experiences as well as a giveaway very soon. You can find my videos here. As for the giveaway, I will be giving away an original day of the dead painting that measures 4 inches x 4 inches. If you are interested, let me know and I will enter your name into the drawing!
