Two Weeks to the Hale’iwa Arts Festival on Oahu

Aloha Friends!

My last blog post ( a few months ago now) was titled ” Trying To Be Brave- Ready to Be Judged”. I wrote about gathering the courage to send in photos of 5 of my paintings to be judged for entry into the annual Hale’iwa Arts Festival held here on the island of Oahu in July. As you can tell by my lack of postings since, I was honored to be accepted into the festival and have been very, very busy painting! Now it’s 2 weeks before the show on July 18 and 19th in Hale’iwa….yep 2 weeks…gulp!

My goal when I heard I was accepted was to have at least 20 original paintings to display and sell for the festival. I am happy to report I just met and surpassed that goal yesterday. I really appreciate all of your support as I have been posting photos on my Facebook page. Insert shameless plug here…. if you haven’t “Liked” my As You Wish Arts LLC Facebook page, could you please do so and share with your friends. Posts only go out if you have enough followers so I am trying to get to 500 “Likes” soon. Mahalo ~Thank you for humoring me and helping get the word out about my art.

Here is a sneak preview of some of the many new paintings I will have for sale at the Festival. If they sell online before then, well, I will just have to make some back up pieces. Ha!
