My first Art-A-Whirl experience is in the books! A major, major thank you to each and everyone of you who came and visited, maybe found some art from ANY artist to take home and love, and all of you who liked and supported my posts from afar... I wish to send love and warm, positive energy to each and every one of you! ✨💕✨ A very special thanks to @weshopamano and @brittakauppila_metalsmith for sharing their studio space with me... and these two lovely ladies for modeling their treasures ❤️ @acwestphal and @jolenemt 😊 a conversation at Art-A-Whirl came up in the studio I was in which is very important to address.. about the emotional challenges of being an artist. You work and work on your own on building up a collection of pieces that share your soul, on some level, and it’s scary! All artists have shows that are good, and shows that are great, and shows that are not so great. All artists wonder if they are being seen and heard. We want to share our love with anyone who will listen. But it’s so easy to feel alone. That’s why weekends like Art-A-Whirl, liking our posts, and sharing kind words with us are amazing to us! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot say that enough. To each of you who believe in me- you are why I am still here, posting away! And keep spreading your love! Buy art, love art, make art, and just keep sending your energy to creative spirits. And makers- keep making. I am slowly filling my house with your art... as fast as I can without getting in trouble hahaha! Stop wandering big chain stores and “buying stuff.” Redirect to something so much more meaningful- this is the “makers’ movement.” Thanks, again 😘. #consciousliving #consciousmaker #artistsofig #buyart #supportsmall #supportlocal #artawhirl #artawhirl2018 #artisttoartist #artistsoninstagram #supportartists #makersmovement #makertomaker #makersmarket #positivevibes #positiveenergy #goodwnergy #artstagram #artshow #guestartist #weshopsmall #upcycledclothing #nemaa #neminneapolis #twincitiesart #twincitiesmakers
