What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

This is what's on my desk this morning.
A mixed media piece
on a wall puttied canvas.
The flowers are of paper and fabric.
There is some sewing on it and on the stems.
Have not decided what to do with the veil.

I have been working overtime
as my brother and his friends
organized an Arts and Crafts Fair
and my sister and I are going to rent a table.

I finished my other canvas
and will be selling it at the Fair.
I'm rather conflicted about selling this
and have no idea how to price it!

  6. Oooh lovely artwork again! Good luck with the craft fair. Sunshine Girl No. 24

  7. I love these canvases! I can't help with pricing either, I am afraid. Good luck with the sale!

  8. I hate putting prices to my works. I love the serene look on the ladies face with the veil.

  9. Love both those canvasses. I'd have no idea about pricing, but they are superb. Wishing you every sucess with the craft fair.

  10. Hey Patsy - so sorry I have been away and negligent in catching up - thank you for the beautiful ATC, I look at everyday and it makes me smile.

    re. the craft fair stall - work out how many hours it took when you set your price and pay yourself minimum wage - if your buyers Baulk at your prices it's up to you if you are willing to drop your prices, but you must at least cover the cost of yoru materiwals ( which you should be able to cost out),

    sometimes fairs are fun and you feel you have been rewarded for your labour and art, sometimes literally nothing sells... either way you meet loads of lovely people who happily talk art....


  11. Happy WOYWW101 Patsy, only 3 to go..
    Love your desk you are busy! know what you mean about not want ting to part with things I always feel that way about mine too the longer it took to create the harder it is to part with it..all the best with your table! God bless, and thanks for sharing Shaz In Oz.x #21

  12. YOur brother's artwork on the sign is as exciting as yours, what a gift your family share! I can't help with emotions over wanting to keep things get in the way!! But am sure whatever, you'll have a really fun day.

  13. Loving your flowers and little house today and savouring the colours! Mmmmmm.


  14. Once again some lovely art work. Hope your work sells as well as it certainly should do at the fair...
