Mr. Dick Tracy, (statue) everyone enjoyed this statue, I guess Naperville has 35 piece of celebrated art work all over the town sharing the history of Naperville and now that they have done that they will be looking to add more. I have to share there was this little elder man and his wife walking around on Saturday in the rain gear, and he looked just like the statue Dick Tracy so when he came by I let him know and they didn't even realize it till afterwards and I said it's the hat that really got you looking like Dick.. they chuckled and we went away feeling good.
So now the weekend has passed and it's Monday, back to the homestead which is piled high of unfinished stuff from the weekend of coming and going..but that's OK..it's home.
I will be preparing for two different things, the Make Your Mark Journal Project this Friday and Saturday and the workshop on Sunday...going, going, going and the husband lets me know that only so long and then it will finally go on the brinks...and he means me...I know I rest while moving if you can believe that one...hahahha. but I do I find moments to have and be in the zone and regroup the thoughts..
So just to added I won 1st place Mixed Media,(tooting my horn) and I ended up making some nice sales at the end of Sunday so with the rain and positive attitude for the art fair season I will be ending things on a good note. This was my last art fair this season and tested out the capabilities of putting up the heavy duty tent by myself and did well..now the Husband isn't to happy though with the extra stuff from the older tent that means I couldn't fit it all in the van in one trip so I needed him to bring the work truck and not ride in like a knight on his Harley.. to come save his woman and use his man strength to help me haul the art and tent to the van..(hahaha ..... I know goofy but it' works for us...) Really the extra art work I brought in the boxes really did take up the space.
Rambling as usually and need to get the body moving or it might go stale and don't want that to happen..
Oh one thing I wanted to share with you all is it's funny to see and we chatted with each other(artists to artists) out there is that there isn't any younger artists doing this we are all about mid 40's and older..we all question is there going to be any younger artists to carry on the art fair scene??? or is it to expense to start out and sit all weekend? or is not an instant gratification for them the younger artists..don't know but something we all witness out there... Well I'm sure change is happening on that front and there will be a new way to do it...
