OAA Fall Art Festival follow-up and final photos

Hello all,  thanks for stopping by.  I'm so thrilled that there was quite a bit of interest in our Fall Art Festival, so I thought I would do a quick follow-up.  There are a few other artists who I got photos of on the last day, so I wanted to share their work as well.
(Cascade is in the bottom right hand corner)

I am happy to report that "Cascade", my waterfall painting, has found a new home.  So have a few Geli prints and several of the tags that I have shared with you here on my blog.  So I was quite happy.
Overall, I don't think there was as much traffic as usual, although it was still fairly busy and a successful show.  Normally we are at the end of September, so the change in date may have affected the attendance a bit, but it could not be helped.  As always, the organizers of the show did a phenomenal job and deserve many thanks!  The art was wonderful.  I really enjoy the shows completely aside from being a participant.  It is kind of a ritual that my father helps me set up for the shows, and pack up at the end.  He often says that, somehow, each show gets better and better, and he always notices improvements in new works.  I guess old dogs CAN learn new tricks, lol!
For some reason, I am always exhausted after an art show.  Any art show, whether with OAA, ACA , or on my own.  (Maybe because I have a habit of power painting at the last minute, pulling all-nighters!  But it works for me) Still. it's always sad, in a way, when the show comes to an end.  Everything is torn down and there is an empty room that just hours ago was filled with people and so many beautiful and vibrant works of art.  So sharing with you has kind of extended the show for me, so thank you for that!  Pleas enjoy the final photos from the OAA Annual Fall Art Festival.

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share some more of the art from the Oshawa Art Association  with you.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.!  We are aready looking forward to the annual Spring Art Festival with OAA.  
  The next show for me is coming up in November with the Ajax Creative Arts group.  It is the 50th anniversary of the group, so it should be an extra special show for us.  I will keep you posted!
