Open Studios 2014 mid-point
It was a very successful first weekend. Many old friends came by and I made a number of new friends. It was a crazy start on Saturday with a big sale, then two separate folks who walked into the studio shook their head and left. I can laugh now, but at the time it stung a little.
I learned a lot and had some very meaningful and informative conversations. The kindness was a bit overwhelming. It's a strange thing to put yourself full throttle into an endeavor and turn around, hang it on a wall, and ask people to come judge it. A new experience for me, with a lot of great ups and downs (mostly, very kind, ups).
Thank you to everyone who stopped by. Even the few who shook their heads and took off.
