Feet "bearly" touching the ground!

So yesterday was the big bear reveal for the Bearfootin event that takes place in the city where I live, Hendersonville, NC. It was so much fun to paint my bear and I was thrilled when I was asked to do a bear for next year too!

The paper says we had around 150 people turn out for the event! Can you see me? lol I'm to the left of the first tree :)

After the reveal, I felt like I was famous, here I am posing for pictures. I've never had so many people taking my picture all at one time. My friends were teasing me afterwards about my 15 minutes of fame!!!

And today, I sold 3 wall hangings and an altered frame....so I need to get my feet back on the ground and get busy!

Ran across your page on facebook and thought I'd say Hi! I live in Mars Hill! Small world!

I had to look up Mars Hill, lol I see you are north of Weaverville, waving hi from Hendersonville. Did you come down and check out the bears, did you see mine? This was the first year I painted one, but I did another this year too. :)
