Essex Studios Open House

Hi out there in blog land.  I have been busy the last few weeks with work and getting ready for the Essex Studios October art walk that took place this past weekend.  I have to say it was one of the best shows ever for me and my studio.  Jared Christopher Queen is the marketing and PR person for the studios and he has done a superb job generating excitement and buzz about the studios.

OK so you probably want to see some pics of the studio.  These were taken on Friday just before we opened up for the evening.

This is outside the entrance to our studio.  My partner Buck shares it with me.  Our studio is located in the middle of the main second floor hallway.  It's considered prime realistate int he building.

This is a shot of the magnet display.  Most of these were gone by the end of Saturday evening.

Here is part of one of the display walls.

Further down the same wall you can see more of my wall pieces.

Hanging out are some of the new Ghostie ornies I made.

A shot of our modest snack table.  I took this before I put out the other bottle of wine.

The main display table and wall ready for the crowds of viewers to come.  As you can see it is pretty crammed full of stuff.

These last three pictures are of my partner Bucks stained glass art.

Hope you enjoyed taking a tour of the show.  We had such a great time talking to all the people that visited us and bought our art.  I actually had one young man who was moved to tears by a tree painting.  Never had that happen before but, it was a humbling experience.  This weekend has really renewed my creative spirit like no other in the past.  This is for many reasons.  I think what surprised me most was how much my art really did have an impact on people.  That is the highest complement I could ever hope for in creating art.  Buck and I received many many comments on how our studio was the crowd favorite.  Not just because of the art but, also the atmosphere of real appreciation for the public's interest.

Hope you all have a grand week ahead.  I will try and post some updates of my new work this coming weekend.  Cio!
