Good Juju in Sedona

We just got back from our first festival in Sedona and what a breath of fresh air, no pun intended but appreciated indeed. We started the set up with a volunteer from the high school eager to help artist unload their wears. He was a fine young lad with just the right amount of muscles necessary to carry the HUGE bins from our truck. As he looked down at my sign that says "MEGHarper" he stood still for a moment and said "I have one of your prints." Turns out his aunt had bought him a horse print of The Finale at a previous art festival. He loves horses and said he loved my art too. What a nice way to start off the weekend : )

My art was very well received in Sedona which is awesome because I LOVE it there. My most touching moment was when someone who had purchased a Believe print came back hours later to tell me why she bought it. This particular painting is about believing in and loving yourself. She was diagnosed with MS a couple years ago and wanted a piece of inspiring art to help her on lifes journey. She said she needed this print more than I'll ever know. By the end of the conversation we were both crying. I feel so blessed to be able to give that gift to someone.

Tory and I managed to fit some play in with our good friends Wendy and Larry too. They are another fantabulous gift I feel so blessed to have.
