Holiday Market for Eileen Fisher REMADE / by littlejoy nyc

Recap from the Holiday Market! I had so much fun setting up my booth with Melina at the holiday market hosted by Eileen Fisher and all the folks at their innovation department: Becoming Lab. The space was gorgeous in the West Village at a place called And&And next door to Calliope. Lots of friends came to say hello and I also made new friends - creative folks who loved to chat about art! Katy brought a goody bag full of delicious snacks like steamed veggies, delicious rich dips, and a fragrant triple creme cheese. 

I met so many new people who were genuinely interested in my work and my process. I felt so encouraged. Painting is something I enjoy doing because it's so different from pushing pixels around on a screen. With painting, I get to interact with a completely different medium and it's definitely more messy! The fun part for me is trying to master a bit of control over the colors and put them onto paper.

If you talk to me regularly, you'd know that my life is full of projects here and projects there. I live my life project to project and many of my memories are easy to recall if someone reminds me of the project I was working on at the time. It was so fun and wild to work on this one - from ordering business cards to painting my backdrops for the gallery to getting a Square for transactions....these were all new experiences I'd never done before! 

I was thankful for my friends who came to support me and say hi for a festive evening before we all flew out for the holidays. Stay tuned because I think I might just open an online store for my paintings...
