Book Party!

Alyson Stanfield speaking to artists at my studio

This past Sunday, I was excited to host Alyson Stanfield, creator of ArtBizCoach.com at my studio for a book party. She's visiting artist's studios to talk about her new book, I'd Rather Be in the Studio.

There were about 13 artists there to meet Alyson, buy her book, and ask her questions about art marketing. Everybody wanted to hear everyone else's questions, so it ended up being a group question and answer type format.

Alyson was very genuine, funny, and generous with her information. I really enjoyed meeting her.

Her book is wonderful - full of helpful information to get you started or to help you focus on what you're already doing. And I was overwhelmed with the amount of online resources that she shares with the buyers of the book. It's such a great supplement to the book. You definitely need to read it!

And, just a reminder - as part of her blog tour, Alyson is stopping by my blog on May 27. Stop back by then for more with Alyson!

Deanna, what fun we had! It was a lovely day with beautiful people. And because we were a small group, we got to chat for two hours and really get to know each other. Thank you for being a terrific hostess! Oh, yes, and I'd be remiss if I didn't say how wonderful it was to finally see your work in person. I truly enjoyed that.

So sorry to have to miss the book party AND meeting Alyson. With 6inches of rain the day before, I couldn't leave town. Sounds like you all had a blast.
