Until May first, a collection of my recent animal-inspired monotypes will be on display at the 29 Palms Inn Restaurant. My monotypes hang on one wall, with photographs by Bruce Miller on the opposite wall. Happily, I needed to bring new monotypes to the Inn on Friday, since some have sold. While M and I were there, we had the chance to meet some of the waitstaff and the Executive Chef, Bear. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful, and I hope to go back and eat one day soon. If you are in the area, do stop by for a bite to eat and some art viewing. The restaurant has a garden behind it, and fresh produce from the garden is used for items on the menu. Everything I saw made me think the 29 Palms Inn Restaurant is a good place to eat. (I imagine it is also a wonderful place to spend a few days, or weeks, as well!) The Executive chef, Bear.
Here is a photo of the front entrance of the Inn. I wish I had taken a photo of the garden - it was impressive! I was too busy ogling to remember my camera, apparently.
I have spent a frustrating day, doing research on how I can take credit cards for people wanting to buy art from me using a credit card. I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that credit card processing for a small business owner, such as an artist, is an expensive and rather complicated endeavor. No matter which website I encountered, the standard selling point is "we have no hidden fees." Yeah, WHATEVER. No longer do I believe anything I read until I have read the fine print. And I have yet to be able to take credit cards. Any of you artists out there have some advice, recommendations, or words of wisdom??? I am open to them!
We had a busy and travel-filled past week. I will be catching you up on the latest adventures this week. I hope everyone had a Happy Easter, and that you didn't eat to much Easter Candy.
