Finster Fest is Upon Us

So, Finster Fest is this weekend May 30th and 31st. I wasn't sure if I was going to makr it. Both my parents have had surgeries recently, my husband has to work and my sister has another engagement.  And apparently I don't have many friends. The few I do have in town I didn't want to bother, but then my knight in shining armor, Casey came to the rescue. She is my soul sister.  Anywho we will only be there Saturday and I really really need to make some money. Being a one income family is getting harder and harder. So I have greatly greatly reduced the prices of my art. Yes it kills me knowing all the time and dedication, sometimes tears, joy, always love, spent hours working on one card or days on a painting. No one knows the heart that goes into my art. It is my passion,  and being at Finster Fest means more than anything. I loved (still do) Howard Finster and I like to think that my art also gets the word of God out. I like to think God gave me this gift so that I could share his glory with the world.  But it seems the world is against me. Am I doing this all in vain? God spoke to Howard, but I am pretty sure He has never spoke to me. I have been thinking of just giving up on art. The one thing ,besides my boys, that makes me happier than anything else. my passion, my love, my hopes, my dreams. I thought by now I would be doing something great with my art. Instead it just seems to get in the way. So I am reducing everything. Maybe if I don't have to look at it anymore I will forget how much I love it.  So please come on Saturday and buy some affordable art.

I  am selling this, my favorite painting for $100
I would also like to add this quote by Frida Kahlo
"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawedin the same ways I do.I would imagine her,and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too . Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that,  yes, it's true I'm here and I'm just as strange as you. "
