More from the Biloxi Festival of Arts
My painting demos were fun, but the crowd was very small. There wasn't a lot of traffic in the mall the entire weekend, I guess because of how beautiful it was outside (although MISERABLY HOT...nearly 100 degrees)!
I honestly don't know how people do it. I roast like a turkey in 85+ degrees, so 100 degree temps are doing me in bigtime. Having no air conditioning in my car is not helping either. Part of my left arm is sunburned due to the sun bearing down on the driver's side of my car while I'm driving...crazy!
Anyway, I sold three pieces of jewelry at the festival and kinda broke even, so although it was exhausting, I had a good time and feel like it was worth the work. Tomorrow I will return to Biloxi to do two more painting demonstrations in hopes to have a few students this coming Saturday. If that doesn't work out, I already have a plan B, as there is an Art With Heart face painting gig in Biloxi as well. So either way, I hope to make 20 bucks or so this weekend. :)
Still have pics to upload...and a recipe...coming soon!
