HECK OF A START TO 2017!!!

My first show of 2017 was fantastic! This weekend I did the Cape Coral Festival of the Arts and it was an amazing start, it was one of my best Sundays of my career. Also I was fortunate enough to win SECOND PLACE (photography) for the show, I can hardly believe it. It was a tough show to get into, and the competition was tough (there were 26 photographers).

They seem to love me down here in Florida. I met so many friendly and warm people, I am looking forward to my next two shows down here.

Obligatory Snow Post

We've all seen this movie before here in NC, we know how it ends.

"MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING"!

2 days ago we were 'supposed' to get anywhere from 4" -12" of snow. Seriously. The usual Southern Panic set in leading to a run on groceries and gas.

:Yawn:

Here in Clayton NC (20 miles S.E. of Raleigh) we got MAYBE 1" of sleet. Maybe.

2016 WAS AN AMAZING YEAR FOR ME AND LEFT BEHIND PHOTOGRAPHY!!

Much has been written and said about ‘what a rotten year 2016 has been’. I am offering a contrary view: 2016 has been outstanding for me! It has had so many highlights that it is hard to remember them all:

* I did 30(!) shows this year, from South Carolina to Illinois.
* I had my 2 BEST shows ever this same year
* I had SO MANY of y’all take the time and effort to come and see me at my shows. It was exhilarating to see all of y’all
I had my FIRST ever Art Gallery show
I had my first big corporate client (I2M) purchase huge metal prints of my art
*I was able to convince a few judges to see things my way including;
 3rd Place; NC State Fair
 Best In Show; Poquoson Seafood Festival
 2nd Place; Havre De Grace Art Festival
 1st and Honorable Mention; Clayton ‘Capture The Town’
 1st and 3rd Place; Johnston County Art and Food Festival

Thank you ALL for your support and for following me on my journey!
2017 promises to be EVEN BIGGER AND BETTER, I cannot wait.
BRING IT ON!

Howdy! It has been a long time since my last blog post, I apologize. I just got home from the Sugarloaf Crafts show in Chantilly VA. It was my second year doing the December Show there. And in November I did the Sugarloaf Gaithersburg show for the second November in a row. I have found these two shows to have the most loyal customers of any of my repeat shows. In Gaithersburg I had 25% of my sales from returning customers. It may have even bee...

And now for something completely different.....
A V-Twin Motorcycle!

I saw this beauty on a recent visit to Stewart-Hass Racing shops in Kannapolis, N.C.. Thanks to Orange County Choppers (OCC) and TLC’s “American Chopper,” a beautifully sculpted motorcycle bearing the look and feel of SHR now sits in the main lobby.

Fairy-tale Church

This old church in Waynesboro Pennsylvania had a fairy-tale look to it on this brisk fall morning. We were up in that area doing a show in Thurmont MD and staying in a cottage down the road from this historic old church. I just love the old stones and the way the stained glass caught the morning sun.

Fell On Black Days
~Soundgarden

This classic has been stuck in my head for a week.

#Soundgarden   #BlackDays   #SOTD  
------------
"Whatsoever I've feared has come to life
Whatsoever I've fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I'm doing time
Now I'm doing time
'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I've cured, I've sickened now
And whomsoever I've cradled, I've put you down
I'm a search light soul they say
But I can't see it in the night

I'm only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate? Yeah

Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh

So what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Don't you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying

I sure don't mind a change
I sure don't mind a change
Yeah, I sure don't mind, sure don't mind a change
I sure don't mind a change

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

I sure don't mind a change"

I had another top-shelf experience with Hampton Inn. My room was spotless and large. I was able to get work done as well as get a great night's sleep. Staff was super-friendly and helpful, lobby was large with plenty of seating for the breakfast crowd. Also there was plenty of parking as I had a trailer and a truck to park

Hotel Brexton may be old and charming but it was not a good stay for me. I was here on business during Artscape 2016 for 4 nights, as an Art Vendor. My room did not have modern amenities like a refrigerator, coffee maker, or microwave oven. Nor did it have enough outlets for today's gadget-heavy traveler. Also the room was not clean. There were stains on the bathroom floor, hair on my bed, filthy AC filters, and strange stains on the chair (see photo). All of the furniture had warped surfaces because of water-stains. There was no place to prepare a drink so it was apparent all the surfaces got wet with ice and liquids. I did not get a good night's sleep on any night because of the extremely noisy AC unit. The TEMP CAN NOT BE CHANGED BY GUESTS. One has to go the the front desk, or call the desk, to change the temp! Are you kidding me? Nope. This is true. This is a poor way to cut corners on costs. Guests pay for the room, they should be able to change the temperature or even turn it off. I began the HATE that A/C unit after a few hours. Lastly the free breakfast was a JOKE! On the Saturday I was there they ran out of milk, juice, pastries and even SPOONS! Guests were left to fend for themselves and most left hungry. You would have to get there early to get food as it was not replenished. Also the cabinets were LOCKED in the kitchen so we could not even search for more silverware. This was another low-class move in my opinion. In conclusion, this may be a good place for couples/romance but not for families or for business travelers.

This is an overpriced dump! Do not stay here, especially on a weekend. From what I witnessed the locals use it to party on the weekends. Extremely loud and uncomfortable. It was not clean. The air vests had a not been clean in months. There were socks and clothes left under the bed from previous guests, which indicates that the floor is not being vacuumed. In addition the Heater had pulled away from the wall. That let in a lot of cold air. The heat would not stop running which led to an uncomfortable night's sleep. The whole place need maintenance and updating. I expected more for about $90/night. KEEP LOOKING for another hotel in the area.

Good home-cooked meal. We had TWO fantastic sandwiches on this visit: the BBQ and the Reuben. We could just tell these were fresh and homemade with care. Fantastic! I look forward to my next visit.

Worst. CVS. Ever. I have been to hundreds of CVS on the East Coast and this is, by far, the WORST. TRASH ON FLOOR AND AISLES. Open food and drink containers on shelves. Items out of place on every aisle. Rude Clerk did not even BAG MY ITEMS. New management and staff needed ASAP!

Fantastic stay! The room was super-clean and newly renovated. There was fresh paint and new tiles in my room. One thing I especially appreciated, as a photographer, was the new, contemporary, B&W photos in the rooms and common areas. Beds were comfortable. Room was larger than expected. I like the couch and the small table, it was an added bonus. Good water pressure. I had a couple lights blow out and they were replaced quickly. GREAT, HOT breakfast! A+
