Hello everybody – due to the threatening weather, I’ve decided not to set up at the festival today.
I hate cancelling out on a show, but I’ve got a new philosophy this year – I’m only doing shows that I like and that are comfortable for me. This show I certainly like, but not while sitting in a series of chilly showers or outright rain all day. I’ve done that for many years! and not any more.
Plus, I have my husband to think of, and I think he’s not in shape to deal with this kind of weather. All in all, it just seems the best thing to do today.
So, next show – Tile Festival at the Moravian Tile Works – in May. I’ll set my sights on that one.
All right, everyone, first show of the 2017 season! This one is held along Easton Road in Glenside, PA (the Cheltenham Township section). I’ll be located in Booth 25 and I’ll be exhibiting my paintings.
Keep your fingers crossed for good weather, if you could…
The postcard gives you all the details – take a look.
Yesterday we participated in the festival. First one of the year. The weather held up for us and it was a good day for sales as well.
I want to say thanks to my friends John G, John N, David, and Laura for stopping by to see me. And a shout-out thank you to my friend Martha, who mentioned me to two friends of hers who made a point of seeking me out. I also saw several other neighbors and local people, and I had a chance to talk to some of my art vendor friends as well. I felt very appreciated.
And of course as always I say thank you to everyone who took the time to stop in my booth to look over my work and to talk to me about it.
Here are some pictures of the event in chronological order. I guess every show looks pretty much like any other, but – they each have their own personality and I think if you look, you’ll see what I mean.
Heads up, everybody. Next Saturday, April 30, I’ll be participating in this festival with my paintings. I’m in Booth #25, near the center of the fair, if you want to look for me. Show hours are Noon to 6 PM and the fair will be set up along Easton Road.
This show is very local for me – I live about 2 miles away and I come to Glenside pretty much every day. I’ve also depicted the area in lots of paintings over time (you can look for them on my art blog – I think some will come up if you search under the word Glenside), so if the name seems familiar to you, that may be why.
Keeping my fingers crossed for good weather! It’s not too early to start…
And, if you take a look at the postcard, you can see one of my paintings featured on it – in the upper right-hand corner.
