July 4th was a very special market day. Everyone was out to celebrate America’s independence. I was lucky enough to participate in the festivities with Carolina Beach locals and tourists. Being a vendor and sharing my work on this special day was an honor. I was lucky enough to be assigned the space on the lakeside to have the sparkling water as the backdrop of my beach themed paintings. It was so fun to meet my customers, especially those that recognized my art from the Port City Java coffee shop. I met so many locals who said they already had my artwork decorating their homes. Some people even added more of my art to their collection that day. It felt wonderful to meet them. And the market day could not have happened without the help of Scott, Alan and David. Thank you so much for helping me set-up and pack-up. The talented Scott built very sturdy, innovative stands for displaying my artwork! I think other artists were intrigued! And I am so grateful for Scott’s company during those five hours. I am lucky to have such wonderful friends around me!
