Holiday Festival of the Arts!

My booth is finally set up for the Allied Arts Holiday Festival of the Arts, which starts Nov 16th and runs through Dec 24th. I'm exhausted! 
Final booth set up, with a small ornament tree on the left side of the shelf you can almost see... 

We found these louvered doors in a free pile last summer, the same day I saw the idea on Pinterest. My husband painted them, and made the shelf and I really like how it turned out.

Here's a closer view of the some little canvases I've been working on with their copper wire "handles" attached. 

I'm a bit freaked that my art is so tiny it doesn't take up much room in the display. But at least you can easily see what I have!  I have several pieces that got their final touches today, and will go over tomorrow morning for the show opening. 

Between the inventory and tagging and setting up, I still did some art! These were finished this afternoon. 
Four 3x3 seashell canvases

and a cheery cardinal beeswax collage


And on another note... this little canvas is being included in two Etsy Treasuries this week; Give Thanks with A Grateful Heart and Colors of the Season.


Sharing today with the artists at Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin. I'm eager to see what other artists have worked on this week.

Hi Helen. Your work is awesome and what a great idea with the shutter doors. Very creative and great job of recycling. I'll have to keep an eye out for things like this. Nice job. Get out there and sell, sell, sell. Good luck, but I know you'll do well. Thanks Helen for sharing your creativity. Happy PPF! Have a great weekend.

Your work looks great! We have those doors in our house and HATE them, because they always break. But how wonderful they look for your display. Your art is lovely.

Your booth looks lovely! I love the slatted doors--did you find they were very heavy when you were setting up?

I'm having a giveaway over at Art in the Garage to celebrate my 1000th post--hope you can stop by and leave a comment!

Good luck with the Festival, I'm sure you will do really well. People love small pieces of art, especially this time of year, and your booth set up looks great.

I think the louvered doors were a brilliant idea. Your art is really lovey. Hope the festival is very successful for you : )

Lovely art. I can't decide if i like the shells or the birds best. I like the subdued tones and writing as texture.
