Highlights from my first Midwest Fine Art Festival│Art Fair on the Green: La Crosse, WI

I spent this past weekend showing my work and sharing stories in La Crosse, Wisconsin. It was my first Midwest fine art festival, Art Fair on the Green, and it was a blast. Thank you so much to all of you who visited my booth, offered a kind word, and a special thanks to those of you who purchased your first JWebb original painting! It was a truly wonderful weekend filled with art, new connections, and sunshine!  

Some of the weekend highlights:

  • Meeting so many ART enthusiasts
  • Making connections and new friends
  • Sharing stories
  • Talking with other artists
  • Sharing words of encouragement with up-and-coming artists :) 
  • Being on a Midwest adventure with the darling Kate, my great and talented ceramic artist and friend!
  • Watching faces light up over my abstracts ;) 
  • Sweet compliments!   
  • Good neighbors! 
  • Staying at Rob's airbnb
  • Taking an order for a young lady's very first commission! (photo coming soon!)
  • Selling several people their first "original" piece of art!
  • Dinner on the town
  • Reminiscing about my move to the Midwest! Two years this weekend, still can't believe it!
  • Talking ART, inspiration, joy and life!
  • and of course... sending several of my paintings out to their new homes. ♥
Thanks again to the wonderful volunteers and people of La Crosse for welcoming us to your beautiful city and 57th annual Art Fair on the Green! We'll see ya next year!

There is so much that goes into any business and I am ever grateful to those who've helped and encouraged me along the way. From a simple kind word, the purchase of a greeting card, to the sale of a large work or commission, each transaction and encounter enables me to do what I love and love what I do. Thank YOU

I would also like to say a special thank you to my friends and family who continually support and believe in me. Thank you to my awesome friend Adam who helped me with my new festival display, to my hubby for fending for himself all weekend and being my biggest supporter, and of course a huge thanks to my artist buddy Kate for recommending Art Fair on the Green and making the trip with me! I ♥ each of you!
