I decided to take a break and paint a picture of something I would like to do very soon.
I just returned from a busy weekend art show in Fairhope, Alabama. My husband was not able to go with me so my good friend, Lynn, was kind enough to go and be my unpaid helper. I have a fairly new tent that is still a struggle for me to put up. (not because of the tent, because of me) I spoke last year of an artist, Robert Jones, who was set up next to me at this show that had a lot of laughs at my friends and me fumbling to put the brand new tent together. Well....this year I pull up to my spot and who is there setting up next to my spot but BOB. The pressure is on for Lynn and me to look like we know what we are doing. We started moving and grooving putting the tent up and I was feeling very proud. Until....it was time to put the top and sides on. I left them in my garage four hours away. I thought several curse words and said a few out loud. This was a three day show so I had to have protection for my work. Long story a little shorter, a couple of guys from Wisconsin had an extra roof and a tarp that I stretched around the sides. Artists helping artists! It all ended up fine because the weather was great. Thanks to my friend Lynn, fellow artists, nice folks stopping by to chat or buy my work, made for a great weekend. And Bob.
This is painted on a 12 x 12" gallery wrap canvas.
