Last Night

Last night I participated in First Friday Las Vegas. It was so much fun. We got to talk to so many really great people. It rained as we were packing the truck, but stopped once we left.
Thank you Cindy from Funk House Antiques and Whirlygig! Thank you to everyone who liked and bought my art! See you next month Las Vegas :)

I just finished this shelf to show at FF. It has a skull, blue birds, flying snakes, moon men, little bone knobs and glitter! We met this guy last night too, I didn't get his name but his snake was named Bo and is a boa constrictor. He was such a beautiful snake.

First First Friday

I wanted to let everyone know I will be in my first First Friday here in Vegas.
Jason & I have been here almost a year. Wow, time flies whether you're having fun or not.
So you should TRY to have fun....even if everything is dry and brown and you miss the humid lushness of an East Coast Summer and all the people there.... haha YES I'm giving myself a pep talk.....and I should listen to myself damn it! Ok enough of that silliness.

Please come see me.....I will be outside - across from the Funk House. September 4th 2009
6pm till 10 pm. I'm going to have a fresh assortment of small affordable paintings and whimsical painted furniture.

xoxo, Patti
