Some cheesy shots showing my artwork on display at the Green Earth Coffee Shop in Lake Forest, California. My daughters and I worked so hard all day Saturday in order to display my artwork. You might think, "How hard is it to hang up a few pieces of art".
Well, a previous photographer had hung or should I say glued their work to the walls and the owner had told me that I was welcome to hang my work if I could get the photos off and repair the wall. So, we started in an area not so noticeable and when we pulled the picture off, so came half the wall! These pictures were not going anywhere even in an earthquake! I had thought, "Oh my gosh, what did I get myself into?". We had to run to Home Depot for spackle and matching wall paint.
So, after that one, I felt so defeated that I was ready to throw in the towel. Anyway, my daughter encourage us on (thank God for the energy of the young) and the next one we used a razor blade to cut the picture free from the glue tape. This time, we got it off without any damage to the wall. Once the picture was down, it wasn't over. There was a residue of glue left and we had to use our fingernails to painstakingly pick it off.

As you see, all this was a great exercise and experience in displaying my work. I needed to make a profile page to talk about myself and put on the wall. I chose the wall you see coming out of the bathroom. Remember buying art is an emotional thing, and hopefully, other people from town might connect with me and my art.
I also had to figure out pricing cards and I did a small info handout that someone could take with them.
I love this picture of people gathered in the shop with my artwork in the background.

We finished up on Sunday and enjoyed a couple of well-earned coffees.
