Arisia Wrap-Up

This is/was the last piece done for Arisia, the one that went for the "quick sale" price:

Oak Woman - Side
by *Cimeara

Final tally: four of ten sold! The piece above, two necklaces, and the bird-beak-ball figurine. I'm very pleased. And what was even better was meeting some of the other artists, seeing their work, getting new inspirations. Wendy Ellertson makes marvelous fantasy pieces from mixed materials, and she's equally marvelous to talk with. Then there was folzgold, aka Jacob Lefton, who had lovely ironwork that shared a table with my figurines. I bought one of his small pieces, a non-metal abstract figure with a mirror torso, a 2" tall model for what he hopes someday to make full-sized. I really hope he does. There's a nice article about Jacob and his work here.

More readings and I managed to get to the one by nineweaving at 10am on Sunday, but only barely, having stayed up too late after the Masquerade on Saturday. The costumes there didn't quite blow me away, but there were some good ones and good ideas. I especially liked the personal-sized dirigible, the steampunk version of a jetpack. I caught the "Red Shift" radio play put on by the Post-Meridian Radio Players and that was great, and saw some of the bellydancing performance that jenwrites was in, but couldn't stay long. I'd only had the hotel room for Friday and Saturday, and wanted to get home before the rain turned to snow.

Thanks for posting the picture. I ran up to the Art Show to bid on this piece on Sunday morning and was disappointed (for me) and happy (for you) to see that it had gone for the "quick sale" price. I knew I should have bid when I saw it on Friday, but we were rushing through the art show and I thought I'd get back before Sunday morning.

It is a beautiful piece, and I hope its new owner is enjoying it!

Thank you so much for telling me this and for the compliments! It's wonderful when someone likes your work enough to buy it, but finding out that others liked it that much, too, gives an extra glow. ^_^
