It's art show season and I'll never forget the woman who once said, "It must be so much fun to be an artist and just hang out at art shows." Obviously, she'd never done it. Just last week I was desperately hanging onto my awning which (even with cement weights) was threatening to become a kite. As I watched, a gust of wind came in and blew all of my shrinkwrapped prints right out of the print stand and knocked over my 8x10 framed oil paintings standing on easels. Some wind! Some fun!
However, I DO love art shows. I love meeting people, hearing their responses to my art and selling directly to the art collectors. After months of relative isolation in the studio, art shows allow me my "people fix." Of course, by the end of the weekend I'll have laryngitis again from all of the chatting, but I love it! If you're in Whitefish, MT this weekend please stop down for the Whitefish Arts Festival down Central Avenue to the train depot park. Hours: Fri and Sat 10-6, Sun. 10-4. Come enjoy great food, fantastic art and sunshine (we hope.)
