Done for the year

Another year, another Portland Open Studios. Traffic is definitely down this year, for me anyhow. I'd guess we had 100 people for the 2 days, which would mean down about 30% from last year, and the year before. My sales are down 40% from last year. There just wasn't that 1 person who came in and bought a $500 piece like before.

Moving on to the November show. I guess since I still have the large pieces, I'm now ready for the November show. I really have no hope of selling anything at the November show though. I'm going into the show not knowing what the other's works are like, except for 2 people, so I don't know what to expect.

But it's exhausting to be on your feet for 7-8 hours a day, 2 days in a row, doing demos. The 'self-guided tour' of my painting process seemed to be a hit though.

Maybe because you had press coverage the years before?
