Thank you to all who made the Holiday Arts Tour here in Ruston such a great success. I had approximately 100 visitors. My sales were tremendous; I sold three paintings and numerous card sets. Thank you Frothy Monkey, thank you generous guests, thank you all who wish you could have come! I look forward to doing the tour again next year, ready to show all new work.

Just one last push to get everything ready for the Holiday Arts Tour. I am so very excited to have fourteen new pieces to show. The last thing I need to do is hang all the work at the Frothy Monkey this afternoon and finish the card sets. I will have 100 of those for sale, so if any one out there wants one, they should let me know. Seven cards with matching envelopes come in a beautiful box (choice of red, craft or white) and each card showcases a different image of my most recent body of work. They are $16 each.
