Last Saturday was the Square One group show La Di Da at the Ritz Ybor in Tampa, FL. What a blast! So many people, and so many of them dressed up in the show's circus/fantasy theme, including me in my blue and white circus dress. I had a spot in a nice little corner that got plenty of foot traffic but was roomy enough that I didn't get a claustrophia attack. I got lots of positive feedback on my work, many people laughing and pointing and thanking me for making such fun little paintings. I also met several way cool artists.
There's my friend Daniel, who I met at last year's show. His work can be seen at http://myspace.com/dlhart7635
Then there's Nel, who I met at the meet and greet a couple days before the show. Her stuff is just so cool in a very Pee Wee's Playhouse kind of way. Check out her blog and her etsy shop:
And finally Virginia, who had the spot next to mine and with whom I had a pleasant time chatting during the show. She fell in love with my Little Nerd, and se we did a print swap at the end of the show: I got one of her lovely and creepy young ladies, she got the Nerd, everyone was happy!

There's another show in November and, Lord willing, I'll be doing that one, too. They're not always very lucrative, but the feedback and reactions I get are always well worth it!
