phenomenal: July fest part one



I am flippin' worn out after 3 days of exhibiting pots and hanging out with friends and the music and mirth....I'll give you the rest of the story Tuesday.

Highlight number one:  the woman who came back after a couple of hours and said "I always buy one thing at this fair and this year you are IT"--my sales were, as they usually are for this thing, awesome and

Highlight number two:  we bought 2 tiny paintings, 4 x 4 and 4 x 5 inches, from a painter named John Carroll.  My wife is not often with me at fairs and I rarely buy anything, but these really caught our eye, such little sweeties! And a great price and artist....funny, you go to the grocery store or the auto mechanic and drop a ton of money in a second and art is so dang AFFORDABLE in comparison!

Your booth looks great, I’m glad it was a good show for you.

The paintings are very nice. I love getting art from fellow festival artists. It’s always a happy reminder of a good show as well as makes my home more beautiful.

Congrats on a great show! Those paintings sure are sweet.

Being in a place where extraversion rules, an introvert gets tired even when enjoying conversation (says me post convention). The booth looks great and I am glad people responded so well to your work!

Glad to hear you had a good show...and those are precious paintings! Colors remind me of someone with yellow in his booth, oh my, who could it be?
