June 4th to June 9th SEAWAY MALL
Rose Festival Art Fair kicks off on Sunday the 4th. I'll be at Seaway Mall in Welland with a couple of my bigger pieces to wow the crowd. I would love if everyone could try to come out to the mall and vote for your favorite artist...ME lol.
For those of my followers that don't know, I work full time at Fallsview casino resort. I've been juggling both careers for 2 years now and have been the busiest bee imaginable. I work Swing Shift 615pm to 245am. I've pretty much been on this shift for 20 years! I've just recently had the opportunity to go to a day shift, and took it! What a life changing event. My new shift starts June 11th. I'm a little worried about getting up in the morning, I've been sleeping in for 20 years! I'm hoping that my art will increasingly subsidize my wages at the casino, and I will no longer need to work full time. Since things are starting to progress with my art, I feel day shift will be a lighter work load for me and I'll have more time for my drfitwood passion!
And speaking of work... a few of you may have noticed I was recognized on the COOL SIGNS. I had a small interview at work, due to one of my supervisors letting the 'cat out of the bag' to HR about my People's Choice Award at the One of a Kind Show. I'm also on the casino's Instagram, Facebook, and NCLinked. Great People of Niagara Casinos is a program at the Niagara Casinos to try and get to know your work mates. It's really not a big deal. Anyone can get on the COOL SIGNS just for being nice to a customer.
So come out next week and help me land the title of People's Choice at the Seaway Mall in Welland!
"Art is a personal thing. When you invest in a piece of art, you buy a piece of that artist. The artist knows every curve, every stroke, every tiny detail in the creation of each piece. Each creation puts a personal intimate part of that artist on display for the whole world to see"
