Watercolor Originals or Giclee Prints?

A new Art show is coming up, an outdoor Art Fair, two days 10~5. I have done many watercolor shows in my little town before and been successful, so why not? Decision made!!! I'm in. The next step, pay my entry fee (to be judged into the show). Now wait for the decision, If I am judged in there will be the tent fee... think this one is $250.

While I wait I think of my audience, music, food….and art! I think that is a good mix for a crowd. Now the work begins.

The BIG question, what should I bring? Well last time I had my string art, (String art is just prints of my watercolor small art animals on a string) that was just for fun and it sold, so I need more of that. I need more small white frames for the little bobbindoodles....ordered.

Don’t forget to get the tent cleaned. Next, I debated on what 6 framed watercolor works to bring. I decided 2 boats, 1 abstract, 1 animal…..the “blushing Flamingo” and 2 florals....decided.

Okay I have my string Art done, and added some pompoms…..to add to the strings, I have even dyed the string to make the watercolor art a little bit more colorful….Done. Created some new greeting cards. I am feeling very prepared.
