Had an amazing time this weekend at the Brewery Artwalk. It was exhausting but wonderful. I met a lot of new people and even friends I have only known virtually through Second Life or Facebook. How cool is that???
Things I loved about the Artwalk:
People would walk up the steps and see the Avatars and I could see their faces light up. I heard over and over again how cool and beautiful they are. My girls were stars for a day. In fact, everyone wanted to get photos with them. LOL (I found a couple posted on Instagram #breweryartwalk )
A lot of people told me how colorful, interesting and beautiful my work is. They loved the colors, the drips and the outlining.
I sold a big painting and a few smaller ones. YAY!!! It’s always sad to see them go, but I am glad they went to great homes where people will love and appreciate them.
I found it really inspiring and maybe validating (not personally but as a society) when people talked about the dancing avatars, especially the plus size/overweight ones. They felt they were more real and more beautiful. Then I would tell them I am planning on creating at least 11 more physical Avatars in plus size/full figure possible in my shape and EVERYONE loved that. It was a really great feeling!!
